Quick Left-Over Chicken Pot Pie

I made this pie with left over Cornish hens but, of course, chicken will work perfectly! Naturally, it does not have to be left over. You can go ahead and cook some chicken for this. At any rate, this recipe is a very quick version of the ‘real deal’. You can make this in a snap and enjoy a nice piece of pie!

You will need:
1/2 white onion, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
2 cups chicken broth
1.5 TBS flour
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1 cup thawed peas, corn and carrots
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
1 puff pastry sheet

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Heat some olive oil in a skillet. Add the onions and celery and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft and translucent. Add the dried thyme and oregano, mix. Place the chicken broth in a skillet and briskly whisk in the flour. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly until sauce thickens and is free of lumps. Add the chicken and veggies. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer again and cook for 15 minutes.

Fill a pie dish with the chicken. Cover with puff pastry, making sure to seal the edges.

Place pie in the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until dough is puffed and evenly browned. Remove pie from oven and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.
