    Mommy Diva's Note:

    This is a scrumptious dish I got from the Rachel Ray show. I think she made it faster, but I take a bit longer in the kitchen. ;) I also added 1 - 2 tsp poultry seasoning,sprinkle of creole seasoning,salt and pepper to taste in my attempt at this. (for ZWT3 - Southern spin on a chicken pot pie- comfort food!)

      We liked this dish, but felt that the wine overpowered the sauce. I would make again cutting the amount of wine and increasing the chicken stock. I did as the last reviewer suggested and used leftover chicken and added bullion. I used chef #37305's Quick and Easy Puff Pastry or Bladerdeeg for the puff pastry. I had to leave out the asparagus as hubby won't eat it. Thank you for posting Mommy Diva, sorry Rachel! Made for Beverage Tag, please see my rating system.

      The puff pastry base was a fantastic foundation for the topping. The flavor was wonderful. I did not have red pepper, so I omitted it. In addition, I was about 3 oz. shy of having a full quart of chicken stock and for some reason even though I followed directions my sauce did not thicken. I heated two extra tbls. of butter in a pan and cooked an addition 2 tbls. of flour and added it (Total of 5 then), after which it thickened. I also used leftover chicken from a previous meal, and added a bit of chicken base to make up for the missed flavor from cooking the chicken in the sauce. Great after work meal -- extremely enjoyed by DH!

      We really enjoyed this easy and quick to make dish. I purchased already baked puff pastry shells, which was a time saver for me. As I was out of asparagus and red pepper, I omitted them. The sauce was wonderful and flavourful, very rich, thick and creamy, the vegetables were tender and the chicken was perfectly cooked. I will be making these again and again. Thanks so much for sharing.
