As much as I like eating short crust pies, it is rather tedious to make in a short notice; or more like I want easy to make food these days having to juggle family, kids, cooking, and deadlines. Anyway, long story short, this is a pretty easy recipe although the prep work can be a little choppy.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 small potatoes, cut into cubes
  • 2 small carrots (or 1 large carrot), cut into cubes
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 rib of celery, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 450-500ml chicken/vegetable stock (homemade or box stock)
  • 2 deboned whole chicken leg, cut into cubes, and cooked (pan-fry/air-fry/oven-baked)
  • 1 box whipping/cooking cream (200ml)
  • 1 tbsp minced parsley (fresh/dried)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • puff pastry, thawed. (If it softens too much before your filling is ready, put it in the fridge for a while)

Recipe Directions

  1. In a large pot or saucepan, add butter. Saute the onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, and celery until tender. Do this on medium fire to avoid burning the garlic and onion.
  2. Add flour gradually and stir in until well blended.
  3. Gradually add broth while stirring. Let it boil for about 2 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in the cream, parsley, garlic salt and pepper. Stir in chicken.
  4. Spoon the filling in ramekins, or oven safe bowls.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk egg and 1 tbsp cream.
  6. Cut puff pastry so that it covers the ramekin/bowl. Make sure its not too small.
  7. Brush some of the egg mixture on the rims of ramekin/bowl.
  8. Place puff pastry over the ramekin/bowl, and use a wet fork to lightly press the pastry down to the rim.
  9. Brush egg mixture over the entire pastry.
  10. Bake in oven or air-fryer (bake function) at 180ºC for 10-20 minutes, or until puff pastry puffs up.
  11. ENJOY!

** This recipe makes enough for 3-4 persons, depending on size of rameskins/bowl.
