Chicken Pot Pie In A Mug

Sunday, August 11, 2013


It is always better to marinate with herbs instead of heaps of salt. Excessive sodium intake is bad for your health. Also, a different blend of herbs make your chicken taste even better!
I used black pepper, cayenne pepper and a pinch of sea salt. You do not need lots of seasoning for your chicken here. Because we are going to cook it in the broth later. 
Finely chop or dice a shallot.
I used frozen green peas. You can use either frozen, canned or fresh.
Beautiful colors.
You may also add other vegetables such as celery, carrot, onion, etc. Pretty much whatever you have on hand.
Stir fry everything until golden brown. Stir in flour and some salt and pepper. The flour is for thickening up the filling. 
Pour chicken broth into the pot.  

Simmer for 7-10 mins and turn to low heat. Then add milk and cream.
I also added some parsley for more flavour and color.

Soooo creamy!
At the point, this rich and creamy chicken and pea soup is ready to be served.
YET, we have to make your day even better :)
Let your puff pastry thaw before you start cooking.
(That is why I suggest you always read my entire blog post first ;) )

Slightly dust the work surface and pastry dough with plain flour. Roll the pastry dough out (instructions here) and cut it into desired size.

I cut it into circles according to my mug size. Cover up the mug, use some water to seal the surroundings and cut off excess dough. Punch a small hole in the middle to allow steam to escape.
B o n   a p p e t i t !
Perfectly golden....
.....puffy and crispy!
I almost felt bad having to poke it through....but I did :D
And I didn't regret it.
The filling is warm and creamy. Full of chicken and peas in each bite.
I love dunking the puff pastry into the soup filling and eat it all in one bite. Heavenly!
Never too much pepper.
Hope you like my recipe.

See you until next time.

  2. Do you need to use a certain kind of mug? I'm not sure all mugs are good in 400 degrees, or maybe they are.
