Chicken pot pie made with puff pastry is so easy you could do it accidently. Well maybe not totally accidently but with little to no effort. Boil some chicken with a bay leaf some celery, onion and a large carrot, salt and pepper till it is ready to fall off the bone. Separate the chicken from the bone trying to keep the pieces as large as possible. In a heavy skillet saute an onion with a little olive oil and toss in chicken and one bag of frozen mixed vegetables of your choice - dont like mixed then just use peas, add 3 tablespoons of flour and some of the broth left over from boiling the chicken. Fold gently to coat and pour the whole thing in a pie pan, cover with one sheet of puff pastry and bake until golden. Feeling creative? Make individual pot pies.
Thats it. Its so much better the next day or after it has cooled completely.
All up in the gravy........
