These were great. Used fresh veges - carrots, celery and mushrooms. Same amount. Used 1 chicken breast 2 trimmed chicken thighs. Puff Pastry, scoring with top of bowl. Per suggestion fresh thyme.
Because I cooked the broth down a bit too much only made 3 so will watch this next time. My husband loved and I enjoyed as well.
Used arrowroot flour instead of cornstarch and was delicious.
I am a great cook but I really like this simple recipe and so does anyone for which I have prepared this dish. I don't follow the measurements exactly but close. I suggest using fresh thyme makes a huge different; also don't replace the shallots with onion - huge mistake. I was out of phyllo dough once so used puff pastry instead. Certainly not as healthy using puff pastry but does bring it up a notch. I think it is only bland if you fail to use the fresh thyme and shallots. I also use chicken stock instead of broth.
This is good but not great! The first time I made this I followed everything to the letter of the recipe. It was very bland, and I was surprised my family said that they liked it, I am thinking maybe they lied. The second time I made it I prepared the sheets of dough like instructed, but I made double. I then used a pizza cutter to cut around one of my serving dishes (as a pattern) so that I could fit the dough on top perfectly, with nothing hanging over and no huge pile of dough on top. I also made dough for the bottom of the pans the same way. (using the dish as a guide.) I added one can of 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. I did everything else as instructed, it turned out amazing. The soup gave it the last bit of flavor I was looking for. It was still healthy as it was 98% fat free. :D:D I will make this again! (my way) Pros: Easy to make, individual servings. Cons: A little bland, no bottom crust.
surprisingly a hit it was really tasty, we actually just made one big pot pie instead of a small one. it was a great hit, i was a little worried cause i've had a hard time with some of these recipes people don't normally like them so i've been away from the site. but i gave it another try and i'm glad i did this one. there was none left at the end of the night! everyone should try. Pros: easy and fast to make
Easy...even for the cooking challenged! I've loved pot pies since I was a little girl and this recipe took me back to that happy place!! I used low fat Pillsbury croissant dough instead of the Phyllo, but followed the recipe otherwise and it was GREAT. The filling was delish! This is definitely going to be a go to comfort dish going fwd! Pros: Easy prep

Easy and unsurprising This is a very easy, tasty dish. It will probably make it into our dinner rotation simply because it's so easy and pretty good. It's not spectacular, but it's definitely a do-again. The phyllo is not really a replacement for regular buttery potpie crust - but if you remember it's low-cal, it's not too bad. I felt like there was too much cornstarch - it kind of seized up when I added it; it became a little globby. Next time, I might try a little less, as it was already pretty thick going into that step. Pros: Very easy, A comforting dish, Fun to have individual portions Cons: Too much cornstarch
