Heart Healthy Hearty Chicken Pot Pie Recipe
Preheat oven to 425°. On a lightly floured surface, unroll pastry sheet. Cut 4 hearts with a floured 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg; brush over hearts. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside.
Reduce the oven to 375°.
Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, potato and peas and sauté until the onion starts to turn translucent, about 3 minutes.
Add the chicken and flour and stir until combined. Cook for 1 minute. Add the broth and cook for 3 minutes, or until the mixture begins to thicken. Add the turmeric, salt, pepper and thyme and cook until the mixture thickens and bubbles, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Lightly coat four 10-oz ramekins with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the filling into the ramekins. Place the ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly. Top each ramekin with 1 pastry heart and serve.
