Ingredients

ROASTED VEGETABLES:

  • cups finely chopped butternut squash
  • ½ Cup finely chopped onion
  • ½ Cup finely chopped carrot
  • 1 Cup finely chopped red potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper

POTTED TARTS:

  • 1 leaf frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 coffee spoons Unsalted butter
  • 2 coffee spoons olive oil
  • 3 soup spoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 2 soup spoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • roasted vegetables (above)
  • ¼ Cup chopped fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 together fresh sage leaves
  • 1 big egg white, beaten

Instructions

MAKE THE ROASTED VEGETABLES:

  • In a medium bowl, toss the squash, onion, carrot and potatoes with the olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Spread out on the baking sheet and roast, 20 to 30 minutes, until tender. Take out of the oven and let cool down. Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F.

ASSEMBLE THE POT PIES:

  • On a work surface, roll out the puff pastry ¼ inch thick and cut into 4 rounds or squares (6 inches), depending on the shape of your 1-cup baking dishes. Use the dish to turn the dough over and cut the circles a little larger than the dish. Keep dough covered and refrigerated until ready to use.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter and oil over medium heat; add the flour and cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Add milk slowly, whisking constantly; bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the lemon juice, chicken, roasted vegetables, basil, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into small ovenproof dishes. Line the bowls with the dough, pressing against the outer edges of the dishes to seal them. Place a sage leaf on each pastry and brush with egg white.
  • Bake the pies on a baking sheet on the middle oven rack for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown. Serve hot.

Remarks

  • * Change the roasted vegetables as you like, trying things that suit your taste.
  • * Substitute turkey for the chicken if desired.
