Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

Quickstart this comforting one-dish meal by making the creamy filling, loaded with chicken and veggies, in the microwave. Top it with a sheet of puff pastry and finish it off in the oven for highly delicious (and efficient) results.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Ingredients

  • ½ tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup (30g) carrots, diced 
  • 2 (25g) mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz (225g) boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1” cubes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½  teaspoon black or white pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup (60ml) heavy cream
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¾ cup (180ml) chicken stock
  • ¼ cup (30g) frozen peas
  • sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg yolk, whisked with a splash of water

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  2. Place the butter, carrots, mushrooms, chicken, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in the Anyday dish and mix well. Cover with the lid (knob lifted). Cook in the microwave for 4 minutes, or until chicken is almost fully cooked.
  3. Add the cream, cornstarch, and stock and stir until fully incorporated. Cover and continue cooking in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, stirring halfway, until it thickens. 
  4. Add the peas and mix well. Cover the filling with a sheet of thawed puff pastry.
  5. Brush the dough with the egg wash and bake in preheated oven for 15-25 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Allow the pot pie to cool slightly before serving.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Be sure to place the hot Anyday dish on a trivet or potholder after removing it from the hot oven. 
  • Substitute the chicken for more veggies for a meatless option.
  • For a spicier dish, add a few dashes of hot sauce to the filling before topping with the dough.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
