Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups shredded leftover or rotisserie chicken
  • 2 cups roasted or steamed vegetables, (carrots, peas, beans, potatoes, corn) coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 fresh sage leaves (shredded)
  • 1 large egg white, beaten

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out puff pastry to 1/4-inch thick, and cut into 4 (6-inch) rounds to fit over 1-cup ovenproof bowls. Keep pastry covered and chilled. (If pressed for time, individual frozen pie crusts may be used, and topped with frozen biscuits or Bisquick mix.)

Heat butter and oil in a medium saucepan over moderate heat; add flour, and cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute. Add the milk in a slow stream while whisking constantly; bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in next 6 ingredients (through pepper). Spoon mixture into ovenproof bowls. Top bowls with pastry, pressing against the outside edge of the bowls to seal. Place a sage leaf on top of pastry, and brush with egg white.

Bake pot pies on a baking sheet in middle of oven for 17 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Serve hot.
