Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use store-bought rotisserie chicken for this recipe?
Absolutely! Using pre-cooked rotisserie chicken is a time-saving option that adds a depth of flavor to the potpie.

Yes, feel free to use fresh vegetables, but make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed to ensure they are tender.
1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 teaspoon pepper, divided
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon minced fresh sage or 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1–1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon half-and-half cream, divided
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (about 10 ounces)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 large egg yolk
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Roll each puff pastry sheet into a 12×10-inch rectangle. Cut one sheet into six 2-inch strips and the other sheet into five 2-inch strips. Create a lattice pattern on a baking sheet and freeze while preparing the filling.
Toss chicken with 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Brown the chicken in 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove from the pan.
In the same skillet, sauté chopped onion in the remaining butter until tender. Add garlic and herbs; cook for an additional minute. Stir in flour until blended; gradually add broth and 1 cup cream. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened.
Stir in vegetables, lemon juice, browned chicken, and the remaining salt and pepper. Bring to a boil again. Transfer the mixture to a greased 2-1/2-qt. oblong baking dish. Top with the frozen lattice, trimming it to fit.
Whisk together egg yolk and the remaining cream; brush over the pastry lattice. Bake until the filling is bubbly, and the pastry is golden brown, approximately 45-55 minutes. Cover loosely with foil if the pastry gets too dark. Let it stand for 15 minutes before serving.
