This is another recipe that I found in Chatelaine magazine and that I have served my family many times to rave reviews. The original recipe called for Chunky chicken a la king soup which is not available in every supermarket so I substituted Uncle Ben's Country Chicken simmer sauce. It is tasty and easy to prepare, even on a work night!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 can chicken a la king soup (or 1 jar Uncle Ben's Country Chicken simmer sauce)
  • 4 cups california-blend frozen vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green beans)
  • 3 cooked chicken breasts
  • 14 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 7 ounces packages frozen puff pastry, thawed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Pour simmer sauce into a medium-sized saucepan.
  3. Rinse vegetables under cold water to remove ice crystals, then add to saucepan.
  4. Set over medium heat.
  5. Cut up chicken into bite-sized chunks.
  6. Stir into vegetable mixture, along with tarragon.
  7. Cover saucepan.
  8. When mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered for 15 minutes, stirring often.
  9. Pour mixture into a 6-cup casserole dish or deep 10-inch pie plate.
  10. Roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness.
  11. Place over filling in casserole dish.
  12. Trim pastry to 1 inch beyond rim of dish.
  13. Seal by pinching pastry firmly against edge of dish.
