One Skillet Chicken Pot Pie is a comforting family favorite classic made easy by using only one skillet and topping with a delicious flaky puff pastry.
Hey friends! It’s Melanie here again from Garnish & Glaze bringing you a delicious classic but made easy. One Skillet Chicken Pot Pie can get a little complicated so I simplified it by making it all in one skillet and using puff pastry dough. I mean, who doesn’t want less dishes to clean? Plus, Puff Pastry! It’s not only easier than making your own pie crust, but it’s puffy flakiness is just beyond comparison.
What exactly is “comfort food”? To me, it means that it’s something warm, creamy, maybe cheesy, and has some sort of flaky or crispy bread. So something like Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole or this One Skillet Chicken Pot Pie. It’s warm and cozy, has a creamy filling, and is topped with a flaky bread topping.
Now, just because this is a comfort food doesn’t mean that it’s all bad for you. I mean, we’re using lean meat, lots of veggies, and nixing a bottom layer of crust. Yes there’s quite a bit of butter involved but… life is better with a little butter. Am I right? And you’re not eating this everyday, even though you’ll want to.
The best part about this One Skillet Chicken Pot Pie, besides it’s deliciousness, is that you only dirty one pan. All the ingredients are cooked in the skillet and then you just add the puff pastry and stick the skillet in the oven. If you don’t have have a pan that can go in the oven you can just transfer the filling to a pie dish before adding the puff pastry.
And, since it’s turkey season you can even substitute the chicken in this for leftover turkey. Perfect for when you’re on the 3rd day of leftovers and need a new way to still enjoy your turkey. This One Skillet Chicken Pot Pie is definitely going to be a family favorite that you add to your monthly recipe rotation. Enjoy!
