A simple, yet delicious chicken pie. Chicken is simmered with leeks, cream of celery soup and white wine, then baked under a sheet of shortcrust pastry. Perfect for cold winter nights.
This turned out REALLY good. I altered it slightly, but only for my own convenience. Instead of browning the chicken, I pre-baked it for an hour at 350, covered. So, I sauteed the leeks alone until soft, then added the soup and 1 cup of chicken broth (because I didn't want to buy wine), then added the cornstarch and let thicken. Once the chicken was finished, I shredded it, transferred to a square 8 X 8 pyrex baking dish, mixed with the leek/soup mixture, then covered with a single sheet of puff pastry. It turned out very good, just like chicken pot pie. Excellent comfort food. - 10 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this was super tasty, and I don't even usually like things like chicken pot pie... i used a can of condensed cream of asparagus instead of vegetable soup, and added some broccoli florets... turned out delicious and actually i thought it looked pretty good as well. - 02 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was really tasty, I also put in some fresh chopped asparagus which added to the flavour (you could also try broccoli). I put puff pasty on top of the casserole dish sprinkled with poppy seeds which really worked well. - 13 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
