Yummy and Easy Chicken Pot Pies
Make the crust:

Step 1 - In a bowl, blend together the flour, butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt with your fingertips or a pastry blender until the butter is mostly combined with some pea-sized lumps. Using a fork, stir in 3 tablespoons of the water. Squeeze a handful of the dough, if it is still crumbly, stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon water. Gather the dough into a ball, then form it into a disk and wrap it in plastic wrap. Chill the dough at least 1 hour.

Step 2 - On a floured work surface with a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out into a 10-inch round. Using a round cutter, cut (4) 3 inch rounds from the dough. Chill the rounds until ready to use. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.


Crust -

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water

Filling -

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, cut into chunks
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  • 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
Make the filling:

Step 3 - In a large cast-iron or heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat until hot, then stir in the onion, garlic, carrots, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil, then stir in the chicken. Season the filling with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the filling between 4 (8 ounce) ramekins. Place the pastry rounds over the ramekins and brush with some of the egg mixture. Cut a steam vent in each pastry round. Bake the individual pot pies until the filling is bubbling and the pastry is golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
