Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg and water until well blended.
  • Lightly dust work surface with flour. Unfold puff pastry and dock dough with a fork.
  • Using a 4-inch ring, cut 16 circles. Set 4 circles on a nonstick baking sheet.
  • These are the base of the pot pies. Discard scraps.
  • Using a 3-inch metal ring, cut circles in the center of the 12 remaining circles.
  • Remove 4 of the 3-inch circles to the prepared baking sheet. These are the tops.
  • Brush the outer edge of the 4-inch circles with the egg wash.
  • Lay 1 of the 12 rings on top. Brush egg wash on that ring and place another ring on top. Repeat 1 more time until you have 3 rings stacked on top of each other.
  • Repeat with remaining circles until you have 4 assembled. Brush the edges and tops with egg wash and bake in the middle of the oven until golden, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, season the chicken with smokey paprika, salt and black pepper.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add oil and 1 tablespoon butter.
  • Saute the chicken, 4-6 minutes, making sure to brown each side until juices run clear. Remove chicken and set aside.
  • Add remaining butter to the pan and saute carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms, fennel, taragon and thyme, until softened about 10 minutes.
  • Add wine, bring to a simmer and cook until most of the wine has evaporated.
  • Add the flour to remaining liquid, making a roux.
  • Add the cream and bring back to a simmer until the sauce thickens to a gravy consistency, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Place the chicken back into the sauce to coat. Season with salt and white pepper.
  • Ladle the chicken mixture into the pastry puff bowls and top with the smaller puff circles.
  • Enjoy!

    A bit of work Laura but it looks like it would be worth it. For a chicken pot pie this is an 8 but you only get a 5. Buono Felcità (good luck)

    Sounds wonderful...great ingredients and a different presentation...and puff pastry is a much better choice for a 'crust' in my opinion. :)
