Pesto Chicken Puff Pot Pie + Alce Nero & SHC Giveaway!

Pesto Chicken Puff Pot Pie + Alce Nero & SHC Giveaway!

What's for breakfast?

It was a hazy morning again, we needed something fast as our guest was heading to the airport in the morning. Ermm... chicken pot pie, fast? Just wait until I go through the preparation steps with you. I bet the longest time taken was chopping  the onion... while wiping off tears of course.

Pesto Chicken Puff Pot Pie + Alce Nero & SHC Giveaway!

I love this pot pie for 3 reasons - its taste, ease of preparation, and a combination of crunchy and creamy texture. Cutting through the puffy, flaky pastry, dipping it into the creamy filling, savouring the succulent chicken... Oh I am salivating already! So soothing but beware, it's very hot! 

Pesto Chicken Puff Pot Pie + Alce Nero & SHC Giveaway!

I still have some Alce Nero Organic Pesto with Zucchini leftover from making meatball. A jar of it comes in handy to kick any dishes up a notch. I have no doubt it will make my pot pie shine, and indeed it did! The pesto is made with 65% zucchini, sunflower oil, extra virgin olive oil, parmigiano reggiano cheese, parsley... All ingredients are organic, no junk at all. As most of us already know, organic food is grown naturally and is free from the harmful substances of pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers. We all want the best for our family, especially when it comes to eating. We want our food to nourish our body instead of ruining it, therefore I try to choose organic whenever we can afford.

All right, I know you must be hungry now, lets start with the cooking (the puff pastry is not in the picture, I used Borgcraft Puff Pastry)!



Melt butter and saute onion until onion turn translucent.



Add flour and stir to dissolve.



Add chicken, mushroom and mixed vegetables.



Add cream, Alce Nero Organic Pesto with Zucchini, salt and thyme (if using).



Simmer simmer.....


Cut the puff pastry sheet, ladle in pesto chicken mixture into remekins and lay the puff pastry on top as shown in the picture. Now you can send them in to the oven!
