Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry Recipe – A classic chicken pot pie recipe made with wholesome, comforting ingredients and topped with flaky puff pastry.

This Chicken Pot Pie is full of tender chicken breast, hearty vegetables and homemade chicken stock. You can even make ahead this juicy chicken breast or use leftovers of it, or use rotisserie chicken if you have it on hand. Just like chicken noodle soup, white chicken chili and chicken enchiladas, to name a few, this is a favorite comfort meal (loaded with chicken) to enjoy on weeknights or for Sunday suppers.

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry Recipe

To make, you’ll need the following:

Ingredients

  • Olive Oil 
  • Chicken – cut breast into cubes before cooking as it helps to cook faster. Can also use rotisserie or leftover chicken if you wish
  • Onion
  • Potato – one large baking potato, peeled preferably, and cut into chunks
  • Carrots – three large ones cut into chunks
  • Butter – I use salted butter, but you can use unsalted if you prefer
  • All-Purpose Flour – this will help the stock and juices to thicken
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Chicken Stock – or chicken broth. Use this delicious homemade recipe or store bought if you prefer.
  • Puff Pastry – thawed

Step-By-Step Instructions

Prep the oven. Preheat the oven to 425º F. 

Cook the Chicken. Drizzle the olive oil into a heavy Dutch oven or pot set over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned. Using a slotted spoon, remove from the Dutch oven to a plate. 

Include Other Ingredients and Cook. Add the onions, potatoes, and carrots and cook until the onions are translucent and the potatoes and carrots are slightly tender, about 8 minutes. Add the butter and allow to melt. Then, stir in the flour, salt, and pepper and cook until thickened, about 2 more minutes. Pour in the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add back in the chicken and their juices. 

Top with Puff Pastry and Bake. Ladle the chicken pot pie filling into a 3-quart casserole dish or individual dishes set on a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet. Can leave pot pie filling in the dutch oven if use one. Top with puff pastry. Trim the edges of the puff pastry to about 1/2-inch overhang of the rim of the baking dish. Using a sharp knife, cut a slit in the puff pastry as a vent to allow steam to escape during baking. Bake until golden brown and the pot pie is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Serve once pot pie is done.

Can You Make Individual Servings?

Yes! You can use the dutch oven, one 3-quart baking dish or ladle into individual oven-safe baking dishes. These individual baking dishes are especially great for entertaining, as well as meal prep.

Can You Use Rotisserie Chicken in Chicken Pot Pie?

To save time, you can also use a rotisserie chicken in your chicken pot pie. This will reduce the cooking time substantially! You’ll omit the step of cooking the chicken in step 2 of the instruction and simply add your shredded, already cooked chicken into the recipe at end of step 3. If you prefer, you can also use other pre-cooked chicken, leftovers, etc. It will be delicious!

    I used your baking method for leftover turkey and gravy, plus peas, carrots, potatoes, pearl onions topped with Trader Joe’s all butter puff pastry. Excellent! Your sauce sounds great I couldn’t waste turkey gravy

  2. I am making this later today. I think I will use my Dutch over to cook in oven, any idea as to how long to bake? Can I use a pastry sheet on the bottom and top or too much crust? Thank you, this sounds delish!

    1. I’m sorry, Dawn, but I haven’t made this in a Dutch oven with pastry sheet on bottom and top. I can’t tell you the time it would take for this to bake.
