Cook's Notes

To save time, you can buy rotisserie chicken (about three pounds) for this recipe. Remove the skin before shredding the meat; you should have about six cups.

    I feel sorry for those who have to buy grocery store chickens or rotisserie chickens. All I have to do is go to my freezer and bring out an old hen or a young roo and they aren't water laden like the ones in stores and I know where they came from... Wondering if using a winter squash would work out with this recipe and substitute parsnips for the carrots...

    Try adding cornbread muffin batter on top of the potpie for a different twist .

    I made a lattice top out of the puff pastry - Putting the pot pie mixture into individual corningware bowls and layed the puff pastry on the top - it looked beautiful and tasted delicious ! Thank-you - my guests thought I was a wiz and I never had to tell them how simple it all was.

    Using rotisserie chicken sure helps, but I stil like a biscuit topping best and I don't have to prepare it ahead of time.

    I made it and the family loved it. Next time though I am going to cook it in pie crust to make it pot pie.

    I don't know why this is called a "pot pie" - not a pie at all. And the puff pastry just sits on top of it? I thought the chicken mixture would be baked inside somehow.

    I just entertained some friends with this dish and it was a hit - the puff pastry was super yummy! I did two slight variations: 1) I substituted the water with some leftover chicken broth I had from a previous recipe and 2) I added some mushrooms. With the delicious squash and green beans it was the perfect transition meal from summer into fall. I also paired the meal with the 'Boston Lettuce with Shaved Parmesan' salad that was also in the September 2005 issue.
