What inspired me to create this Chicken Pot Pie in Individual Puff Pastry?
While visiting Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Florida this past summer, we ate dinner at the new Be Our Guest Restaurant. Many times since eating there, I have thought about the delicious creamy, crunchy, seafood, stuffed pastry I ate. You can see the seafood stuffed pastry below. I did not feel like I could create the seafood filling with the creamy sauce, so I decided to add a comfort food we all enjoy to a puff pastry. My goal was to enjoy an individual crunchy pastry with a creamy filling. My family loves my Chicken Pot Pie recipe. Therefore, I added my creamy pot pie filling to a puff pastry that I individually cut. WOW! I cannot express to you how much we loved it! I think puff pastry is my new favorite kitchen item. I am working on an individual Apple Pie Crumble using Puff Pastry.
Chicken Pot Pie in Individual Puff Pastry Ingredients – This recipe filled 12 JUMBO Muffins plus 4 REGULAR size muffins. If you are using regular muffins tins, it will fill about 18 muffins. I used 2 packages of Puff Pastry dough. Each package has 2 sheets in it. To fill JUMBO Muffins tins, cut each sheet in fourths, cut in six pieces to fill regular muffin tins. After feeding my family, I had a few left over which were great the next day. I left the Chicken Pot Pie in Individual Puff Pastry in the muffin tins and wrapped it well with foil. When we ate it again, I unwrapped foil and warmed it up in the oven. You may find a better way, but this worked great for me.
