Sweet Potato Chicken Pot Pie

Recipe: Sweet Potato Chicken Pot Pies
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1-1/2 cups 1/2-inch diced and peeled sweet potatoes
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 cup cooked green peas
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon water
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in stock until you have a smooth sauce.
  2. Bring to a boil and add sweet potatoes, chicken, scallions, peas, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook on low, stirring frequently until sweet potatoes are tender, 6-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool 5-10 minutes. Divide between 4 medium-sized ovenproof bowls.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Cut 4 circles from puff pastry, each large enough to cover the top of bowls. Brush rims of bowls with water and place a pastry round on top of each, pressing edges tightly to seal. Brush tops of pastry with egg wash.
  5. Place prepared bowls on a baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until puffed and golden-brown.
  6. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
