With puff pastry, frozen vegetables and a jar of Alfredo sauce, you can make homemade pot pies even on busy weeknights!
sheet frozen puff pastry (from 17.3-oz package), thawed as directed on package
tablespoon butter or margarine
tablespoons finely chopped shallots
cups chopped cooked chicken
cup frozen peas and carrots
jar (16 oz) Alfredo pasta sauce
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray 4 (10-oz) custard cups or ramekins with cooking spray. On lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry to 13-inch square. Cut into 4 squares. Lightly press 1 square in bottom and up sides of each custard cup, letting corners hang over sides.
In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add shallots. Cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shallots are softened. Add chicken, frozen peas and carrots, and Alfredo sauce. Cook 3 to 4 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until peas are thawed and mixture is hot. Sprinkle with thyme leaves; stir well.
Spoon mixture into pastry-lined custard cups. Fold corners over filling, pinching to almost close tops. In small bowl, beat egg with fork or wire whisk; brush pastry tops with egg.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until pastry is deep golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve in cups, or remove to individual serving plates.
If you don’t have 10-oz custard cups, look for them in any kitchen or department store. Many grocery stores also carry them in the baking aisle. They are inexpensive and have a multitude of uses in the kitchen.
Look for the puff pastry in the dessert section of the frozen food aisle in the grocery store.
