There’s nothing like a good Chicken and Vegetable Pie, also known as Chicken Pot Pie. Trouble is, most recipes take quite a long time to make. You have to prepare the chicken and vegetable filling, cool it, then make the pastry and roll it out, add the filling and finally bake the pie. It’s hardly the work of moments.
What if I told you that you could have a tasty Chicken and Vegetable Pie on the table in under an hour? With Jus-Rol pastry you can! Jus-Rol are the Pastry People. They’ve been making delicious ready to roll pastry and pastry sheets for over fifty years. They’ve got lots of delicious recipes on their website. This Chicken and Vegetable Pie is one of them.
Why do I choose Jus-Rol pastry? Jus-Rol is easy to use and it’s light and flaky just like homemade pastry. In fact, people generally can’t tell I haven’t made the pastry from scratch. Jus-Rol is easy to keep on hand in the fridge or freezer so that making a delicious sweet or savoury pie or tart doesn’t have to be planned days in advance. You can just grab the Jus-Rol and get started. Jus-Rol comes in lots of different varieties, from shortcrust and sweet shortcrust to puff pastry and filo. They even make new flavoured pastries and a lighter puff pastry variety. You can buy Jus-Rol from the chiller cabinet or frozen, in a block ready to roll out yourself or in convenient ready-rolled pastry sheets.
I love this Chicken and Vegetable Pie because it tastes amazing and is such a great way to use up leftovers. The recipe calls for cooked chicken breasts (turkey or ham could be easily substituted) and either leftover or frozen vegetables.
The creamy filling makes this pie pure comfort food, perfect for cold winter evenings.
Jus-Rol makes this Chicken and Vegetable Pie easy, quick and oh so delicious. In fact, I’ve made this recipe twice more since I tested it for this review. I know Jus-Rol’s Chicken and Vegetable Pie will be just as popular in your home as it is in mine!
