I made this on a very, very snowy weekend and it was the ultimate comfort food cuddle. Crispy flaky pastry, oozy creamy sauce and slow cooked chicken. Heaven. It’s actually a bit of an adaptation on previous recipe you can find here for my Wintery Chicken Casserole – I just omitted the pasta (y’know, double carbs) and used the stock to make a thick sauce. I wish I could make my own flaky pastry but sadly, I’m really not gifted in the baking department, so this recipe features ready-made puff pastry. You could also use shortcrust, but puff is my favourite.
I hate my worktop btw.
I put a heart on it, obvs, because I REALLY heart pie. Also yup, that’s my pjs in the background.
I served this with winter greens (purple sprouting broccoli and kale) but you could easily up the stodge with some mash, which would be really good with that creamy sauce. This is such a good cold weather dish I feel warm even writing about it! Recipe after the jump 🙂
