Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry Crust

For my Chicken  Pot Pie table, I've used my crocheted topper along with pretty red polka dot placemats.  I made the black and white gingham napkins. 
The polka dot hen is from Hobby Lobby, which is nesting in a basket.  The candle came from Wimberley, TX and I added a polka dot bow to carry on the theme. 
The cheery polka dot ramekins are from Ross and I've used my red Cambridge flatware. 


I am on a roll with Puff Pastry lately and wanted to make a comfort dish and decided on chicken pot pie.   I had never tried puff pastry on top, but after making it and my hubby declaring it "the best chicken pot pie ever", you'd better believe that I'll be making it this way from now on!!

3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 Tablespoons chopped onion
3 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
some fresh thyme, taken off the stems or some dried thyme
 3 cups cubed cooked chicken

1 sheet of puff pastry
1 egg beaten with 1 T. water

Melt the butter in a large skillet.  Add the celery, onion, and mushrooms and cook about 5 minutes.  Stir in the flour and cook for about 1 minute.  Add the chicken stock, poultry seasoning, and fresh thyme.  Stir and cook until thickened.  Add the chicken and heat through. 

Cut the puff pastry into fourths.

Divide the chicken mixture into four 8-ounce ramekins.  Wet the rims of the ramekins with some water.  Top each ramekin with the puff pastry square, press down around the rim.  It's okay to have an overhang of pastry.  Cut a slit in the top to vent.  Brush with the egg wash.   Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.  YUM!

NOTE:  You could but this in a square baking dish and just top with the sheet of puff pastry.

  1. Good Evening Kitty, My husband is a "pie eating man" and I just know he is going to love this pot pie you have made. Looking at the recipe, I think it is the celery which makes the difference to the pie.
    I am going to make this in the near future.
    Best Wishes

  2. Hi Kitty,
    your tablescape is cute. Love all the dot designs, even the flatware seem to have dots. And your pupp patries look yummy, too. Thank you for sharing this recipe, too.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  3. Oh, Kitty, this would be a reat treat! I love chicken pot pie and your looks amazing with the puff pastry covering the top and beyond the dish. I love your tablescape too. It's very cheerful. Thank you, my sweet friend, for sharing this at my HOME and I wish you a lovely Mother's Day weekend.

    Blessings and hugs,

  4. Kitty, this is on my to make list!!! It looks so wonderful with that drapey crust! I have that flatware, too. Just love the color of the red! Chicken, ferns, crocheted lace, polka dots and gingham.. well that is the mix of all great things! The polka dot chicken is so cute!!! I have a mate for it! But mine is white with black dots and a red comb. xo maqrlis

  5. I am with Marlis and have added this to my make list :) This looks SOOO good! And your reds and polka dots are adorable!

    Hugs to you!

  6. I need to find the way to your house ~ especially around meal time! :) This looks and sounds delish. I love puff pastry...really, too much so! LOVE all the red and the polka dots. My first thought was that you made the place mats so not surprised that you made the napkins. Beautiful table, my friend!


  7. Hubby is gonna love this pie...he adores pies, the sweet ones too! Chicken pie is his fav, so thank you for your recipe, sweet friend. I can just imagine the great food you will all have for Mon's Day!

  8. Kitty this recipe is calling my name. Your table is the cutest thing ever too.
    You are just amazing. Have a great day..xo Tami

  9. Love your polka dotted hen Kitty! I agree, once you've had puff pastry on top your pot pie, anything else is a poor substitution!

  10. I always say polka dots make everything fun Kitty! You set a cute table and dinner sounds great:@)

  11. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I love puff pastry-topped chicken pot pie!

    It's what I ordered when my eldest daughter and I ate at The Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah! (I love Paula Deen!)

    I have made her recipe quite a few times - her puff pastery was braided on top, which isn't easy but sure makes a lovely presentation!

    If it continues to rain and be chilly I just may have to make this now that you have my mouth watering, Kitty - yum, looks SO DELISH!!! (And your tablescape looks so cute!)

  12. Yum Kitty!! This looks delicious. I think everything is better with puff pastry! Your hen is so cute sitting there on her nest! Linda

  13. I like the way your polka dot hen is looking over the table, good thing there is a beautiful puff pastry covering that chicken pot pie! Maybe she won't notice you are serving her cousin! Are you publishing a cook book? If you haven't yet, you need to do so!!

  14. This is EXACTLY what I was going to cook tonight!!! Ramon ended up taking us out to eat at Perkins after spending forever in the stupid Home Depot store, so I didn't make it. I am going to use YOUR recipe tomorrow when I make it for dinner!!! I have already cubed my chicken and cut up my vegetables, so it should be easy going! I was going to make the pastry from scratch, but I have some puff pastry in the freezer, so I think I'll use that instead. Yours looks really good, especially overhanging like that. That looks quite European, my dear! :-)

    Have were reading my mind!!!!

  15. How cute is this! Your red and white make me smile, and that chicken pot pie would definitely make my husband smile. Thanks for sharing your recipe. '-)

  16. Kitty, this sounds wonderful and I just love that drapey crust! The red flatware and polka dots makes me smile! The chicken is so cute!!! Have a great week dear friend. xo

  17. Whoopee! I have some puff pastry in the freezer right now. I cannot wait to make this. I am crazy about polka dots and love your table. I was really interested to see the nesting hen, as I have been looking for one to put inside a metal basket that has a top on it for my kitchen. Yours is adorable! I am trying to find one that has some black on it. Thanks, for sharing, Kitty!

  18. Your red and white table is so pretty Kitty! The chicken pot pie looks wonderful!

  19. Delicious looking puff pastry. Beautiful table too, love the bright colors!...Christine

  20. Cute, cute table, Kitty! The crocheted table topper is beautiful...and looks so nice with red polka dots and black gingham. Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite meals.

  21. I am definitely going to pin and try this. I am on a little puff pastry kick too. I used the puff pastry shells at my luncheon last weekend to hold chicken salad. I love the pot pie idea.

    And your table just plain out makes me HAPPY.

  22. Kitty, your recipe sounds and looks so good! I will be making it, although I've never used puffed pastry before! I bought four ramekins while in Florida hoping to make something like this! Your table is set so darling as usual!

  23. This sounds delicious! This would be perfect to link up to my "Create It Thursday" post here!

  24. What is it about polka dots that are so happy? That red hen is just the pride of the table isn't she? She is absolutely adorable and sets the whole mood. I haven't made a chicken pot pie this year, but making them in those polka dot ramekins really makes them fun. Yes, puff pastry is the best and just topping it is perfect. I love how you made it so rustic by hanging it over the edges - that way you end up with more puff pastry to enjoy too!

  25. Charming! Love the whimsy of red and white dots and blk and white checks! The table and the red chicken centerpiece are so inviting. Love the recipe- bet I could make it vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth and non-meat 'chicken' since we don't consume meat. Have a lovely Mother's Day! :)

  26. I am really envious of your gorgeous cutleries...the food surely taste extra delicious when served in such pretty things:D

  27. Oh you KNOW I had to fall in love with all these RED polka-dots, Kitty!! They always make me smile. What a charming tablescape & the recipe sounds yummalicious, too.

    Thanks for sharing all your pretties with us. I'm sorry not to have been able to comment on your last few posts. I was away at my sisters. Home now for good, I hope!


  28. Kitty, your table is dotty delicious! I love polka dots and red are my fav. I have made pot pie like this before and we loved it also. I think I first saw it in Country Living. I served it at a party once and all the gals loved it also. I'll be pinning your recipe so I'll have it handy for next time I make it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs and happy Mother's Day!
