  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • Parsley, finely minced
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • In a large oven-safe skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add the diced celery, carrots, onion, and potatoes to the skillet. Saute for 8-10 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften.
  • Season the vegetables with salt, pepper, and minced garlic.
  • Sprinkle flour over the vegetables and stir until well combined.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and add the cream cheese. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly.
  • Fold in the cooked chicken and peas until evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  • Roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface to fit the size of your skillet.
  • Carefully place the puff pastry over the skillet, allowing any excess dough to hang over the sides.
  • Use a sharp knife to trim off the excess dough hanging over the edges of the skillet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the egg.
  • Brush the egg wash over the top of the puff pastry to create a golden-brown finish.
  • Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden brown and cooked through.

Recipe Notes:

  • For a variation, you can use pie crust instead of puff pastry, but adjust the baking time accordingly.
  • Feel free to customize the vegetable mix according to your preferences or what you have on hand.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and reheated in the oven or microwave.
