Chicken Pot Pies with Puff Pastry

This recipe is the perfect balance of tastiness and time saving. Utilizing a roaster chicken saves you time without losing any flavor. My mom has been making this recipe for a long time, but I added the puff pastry after seeing it once on tv. Totally delicious, quick and easy. Enjoy!

Chicken Pot Pies with Puff Pastry
Makes two pies - Serves 8-12


  • 2 sheets puff pastry, defrosted.
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 8 oz container sour cream
  • Hungarian paprika, to taste (I usually add about 1 tsp or more)
  • 1 bag mixed veggies (Corn, peas and carrots)
  • 1 roaster chicken, pieces of meat removed and set aside


  1. Cut each puff pastry into strips, and make into two lattices. Brush with an egg wash and bake @ approx. 405-f degrees until browned. Let cool on the pan.
  2. Add cream of chicken soup and cream of celery. Add sour cream and hungarian paprika to taste. Mix with frozen veggies. Add roasted chicken and mix. Pour into two pie plates, or a 9"x13" pan. Cook until heated through at approx. 350-f degrees, about 30 minutes.
  3. Once done, add your cooled puff pastry to the top and serve.

Recipe from my mom.


  1. Love this! Your pictures look so gorgeous, and I think this would be pretty enough to serve to company. Thanks for another great recipe.

  2. I lvoe me some....chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot Piiiieeeee!

  3. I just thought of something else. I'd love it if you could do a post on using puff pastry. It just occurred to me that I have never used it before and some tips might be useful. Sounds fancy and like it might be intimidating, but maybe it's not so difficult??

  4. the7gerbers -

    Puff pastry is no more difficult than canned crescent rolls or biscuits.

    If you want to give it a nice shine, do an egg wash (or even milk or cream) on top of it. Otherwise, you can cut it into rounds, squares, do a lattice top, or just whatever, and bake just like anything else.

    Also, if you take a sheet of puff pastry, cut it into quarters, then fill with something like nutella, cherry preserves, or anything like that, you've got very fast and delicious turnovers.

  5. Oh, now that looks super yummy. My family has a strange aversion to soups, stews, casseroles, pot pies...basically anything where ingredients are too meshed :) More for me, I say :)

  6. The puff pastry top sounds amazing ... and I LOVE your blog name. The quote on the sidebar is hilarious!

  7. I know this is off topic, but I just had to write to you about the corn bread. The recipe was on your old blog and it was your sister's recipe. Let me tell you, it was THE BEST corn bread. I have always used Jiffy and I was out. So, I found your recipe and will never use Jiffy again. Thank you so much! Nella

  8. Oh this looks heavenly!!! Please come link up here:
    It's a small link up party, but we are a friendly group over here!

    Your blog name is so cute... and SO that is hilarious!

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Moist Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Moist and so flavorful, this Pumpkin Coffee Cake can be enjoyed year round and is particularly good with a cup of coffee.

A light glaze decorates the top of the coffee cake, along with a sprinkling of pecans.


Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. Enjoy!
