Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed

For the filling

  • 3 1/4 cups low-sodium organic vegetable broth, divided
  • 2 Cups peeled diced organic sweet potato
  • 1 1/2 Cup peeled diced organic russet potato
  • 1 Cup diced organic onion
  • 1 Cup diced organic celery
  • 1 Tablespoon minced organic garlic

For the whisk

  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream of half-and-half
  • 1/3 Cup almond flour
  • 3 Cups diced rotisserie chicken
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 Cup frozen peas
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted organic butter

Directions

For the crust

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut pastry sheet into 1-inch-wide strips. On a baking sheet, weave strips into a lattice pattern to fit the size of your baking dish. 

For the filling

Heat 2 1/2 cups broth, sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, onion, celery, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the vegetables are slightly soft, about 8 minutes.

For the whisk

Whisk together the remaining 3/4 cup broth, cream, and flour. Pour the slurry into the vegetable mixture; cook and stir until thick and bubbly. 

Add chicken, apple, and peas. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into prepared baking dish and dot with 2 tablespoons unsalted butter. 

Fit the pastry over the baking dish and crimp edges. Place a baking sheet under the baking dish or on the rack below the baking dish to catch drips.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the pastry is nicely browned.
