  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, minced
  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, diced medium
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/3 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 sheet thawed puff pastry
  • 1 beaten egg


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-high. Add onion, celery, and carrots and cook until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Gradually add broth, stirring constantly, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in green beans and chicken and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Divide filling among four 8-ounce ramekins. Roll out 1 sheet puff pastry and cut 4 rounds to fit ramekins. Cut a small X in center of each to vent, then place on top of filling. Brush with beaten egg. Bake at 375 degrees until filling is bubbling and crust is golden, 30 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes

If you don't don't have time to make the read deal, try a dumpling variation (about 45 minutes) or a pasta variation (about 30 minutes). All are a clever way to use up leftover chicken.

    Thank you for this recipe. I believe French fries will suit beside Chicken Potpies.

    I found myself making this dish several times ever since the recipe came to my inbox. I make a Shepherd's Pie variation using coconut flour and a smashed potato & ground flaxseed topping baked in one big casserole pan instead. Delicious, go-to and easy favorite. Thank You, Sarah, for all the kitchen-inspirations. :) I am so glad to have signed up for your fun daily digests.
