One-Skillet Chicken Spinach Mushroom Pot Pie

One-Skillet Chicken Spinach Mushroom Pot Pie

I can’t imagine anyone who doesn’t like a homemade pot pie! Especially a Chicken Spinach Mushroom Pot Pie covered with crispy puff pastry. Using only one Iron Cast skillet, this hearty dinner recipe is no fuss nor does it take all day to make. The puff pastry in this recipe is store bought but never the less, amazingly good. When working with frozen puff pastry we need to let it thaw overnight in the fridge or over the counter ahead of time. If you try to work with puff pastry that is not fully thawed, it will crack and become a mess. Planning ahead will result into a delicious buttery, flaky, golden brown pot pie delight.
