    SuzanneThePainter's Note:

    This delicious comfort food made easy and somewhat healthy (if it weren’t for the pastry shells) can be prepared ahead of time and even frozen! Simply freeze portions of the filling in little Tupperware containers and keep a package of the pastry shells on hand. You can also use leftover turkey or chicken for this recipie.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup white pearl onion (chopped, buy them frozen, it's so much easier)
    • 1/2 cup baby carrots (sliced into pieces)
    • 2 celery ribs (chopped into slices)
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground (or more to taste)
    • 2 -3 chicken breasts (poached in salt water ripped or cubed)


    • 2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons margarine
    • 1 -2 cup chicken broth (organic is preferred)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt (this may vary depending on how salty your broth is, taste before you add any)
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (curly is great, but flat leaf will work too)

    Other Ingredients


    1. 1
      Place 1-2 pastry shells on foil lined cookie sheet for each person who will be dining and cook according to the package directions. Once cooked, set aside to cool.
    2. 2
      Place all the veggies into another sauce pot filled with boiling, salted water. Cook until carrots are tender (usually 5-8 minutes) and pierced easily with a fork. Drain veggies and set aside.
    3. 3
      In a sauce pot melt two tablespoons butter over medium heat and add 2 ½ tablespoons flour. Combine flour and butter and allow to bubble and cook (do not let it brown). Add chicken broth a little at a time and whisk to combine. Combination will thicken quickly so be sure to add more broth as needed to create a sauce that coats the back of a spoon.
    4. 4
      Lower heat to Low and add in freshly chopped parsley, grind in black pepper and salt to taste. Depending on the chicken broth you use, you may not need to add salt so be sure to taste the sauce before seasoning.
    5. 5
      Add the veggies and chicken to the sauce.
    6. 6
      To plate, grab pastry shells, pop out the center with a fork and spoon in the pot pie filling. Sprinkle with any remaining fresh parsley and -- enjoy.

      Haven't tried this, but puff pastry shells contain butter. This is not dairy free.

      Two things I love about this: 1) It's dairy-free, and we have dairy allergies. 2) It was so good that it didn't seem like the act of desperation that it really was - I couldn't get to the grocery store and puff pastry shells emerged as the main ingredient in the house. Because my kids are vegetable-phobic I skipped the carrots & parsley (too hard to camouflage). I slivered & diced regular (not pearl) onions & celery tiny beyond recognition, and sauteed them well, then cooked in a bit of added water to soften. Oddly enough, when I put the shell lid on, the fact that the food had "hats" kept the kids distracted long enough that they actually tasted it before passing judgment - one asked if I could put the recipe in the "keeper file"! I like the suggestion of freezing the chicken mixture - that would make a wonderful, quick dinner. Thank you for sharing this, SuzanneThePainter!
