4 cups chicken broth, low-sodium canned or homemade

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 large carrots, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds, (1 1/2 cups)

8 button mushrooms, quartered

2 ribs celery, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 cup halved baby or small turnips, or quartered if large

Kosher salt

1 cup frozen pearl onions, thawed

1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Freshly ground black pepper

3 sheets phyllo dough

Olive oil spray

Paprika

Add Checked Items To Grocery List

Step 2: Directions

Spray 4 (8-ounce) ramekins with the olive oil spray and set aside.

Put
the chicken breasts in a medium saucepan, add the broth (it should just cover the chicken), and bring to a boil. Cover, turn the heat very low, and cook the chicken very gently until just firm to the touch, about 15 minutes. Remove chicken from the broth reserving the broth. When the cool enough to handle, shred or dice the chicken into large bite-size pieces, discarding the bones. (If some of the pieces are still a bit pink, don’t fret, it finishes cooking in the pie.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat the oil in a heavy non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, mushrooms, celery, turnips, season with salt, to taste, and cook until the vegetables are light brown, about 8 minutes. Add the onions and cook about 1 minute more. Stir the flour into the vegetables and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the reserved chicken broth and whisk until it comes to a boil. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer, uncovered, until thick, about 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the chicken parsley, dill, lemon zest, and pepper and remove from the heat.

Layer 3 sheets of phyllo dough on the workspace, spraying with olive oil spray in between each layer. On the last layer, sprinkle with more salt and pepper, and the paprika. Cut sheets in half, crosswise, and stack to make 6 layers. Cut 4 rounds out of the phyllo with scissors or a paring knife that fit snugly into the opening of each ramekin. Divide chicken filling evenly among the ramekins and place the phyllo rounds on top. Bake until bubbly, chicken is cooked through and crust is crispy and golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes

this Absolutely DELICIOUS recipe and I used leftover turkey. I had a couple of extra unbaked pies and froze them for another day – they were still great.
