Chicken and Rice Pot Pie
Frozen puff pastry makes an excellent pot pie crust in a pinch.
Why This Recipe Works
Cooking the pastry topping and creamy filling separately allowed us to get our Chicken and Rice Pot Pie on the table in less than 30 minutes. It also kept the pastry from getting soggy. We were sure to pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels before we cooked them in the skillet. This ensured they browned more evenly. Instead of making our own puff pasty, we found it far more convenient to buy it frozen from the supermarket.
