Potato, Leek, and Chicken Pot Pie

Every year after the Thanksgiving turkey dinner, Ro-Jiro would drop hints about a follow up dish in the form of a pot pie using the leftover turkey. I usually oblige him but with the most recent Thanksgiving, I used up the meat for this Turkey Congee. For that reason he was not able to get his pot pie fix up until now. Although there was a delay this time round, I think he would agree with me that it was well worth his wait. ;)

Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to make the filling with a touch of the Irish using potatoes and leeks, two ingredients very popular in the Emerald Isle. I had one remaining sheet of puff pastry in the freezer and so I used it as a topper for the pies. That made it really easy as I only needed to concentrate on the filling which is pretty straight forward and simple.

Melt butter in a medium sized pan. Cook chicken for 5 minutes until browned all over.

Add leeks and cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute stirring continuously.

Gradually pour in milk and bring to a boil.

Ro-Jiro thoroughly enjoyed his Potato, Leek, and Chicken Pot Pie and so did the rest of the family. As soon as he finished his, he requested that I make it again soon. I guess it may be a good idea for me to replenish my freezer with another box of puff pastry soon. :)
