Assembly: Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

  1. Cook chicken.
    Option 1:  Boil chicken breast in a medium sized pot, with four cups of water or until the chicken breast is covered with water. Add 3 garlic cloves and 1 Tbsp of salt. Allow to cook for 20 minutes, and skim off any scum that comes to the top. Remove the chicken breast from broth and allow to cool, then, then shred with hands or forks. Strain and save chicken broth.
    Option 2:  In your cast iron skillet, heat 2 Tbsp of olive olí over medium heat. Grill chicken until cooked, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool, shred with hands or forks. (This option you will have to buy or make your own chicken broth.
    Option 3: You could also buy rotisserie chicken and make this dish even quicker! 
  2. Preheat oven 375F
  3. In a 10 inch cast iron, sauté onion in 2 Tbsp of olive oil.
  4. Add in vegetables and sauté for 1-2 minutes. 
  5. Add in flour, salt, herbs, and black pepper, mix until flour coats vegetables.
  6.  Slowly add in chicken broth, ½ C at a time until broth has thickened. 
  7. Add potatoes and shredded chicken. Mix until fully incorporated. 
  8. Top with (thawed and rolled out) puff pastry, cut the pastry  along the edges of the pan, and brush with egg wash. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
