Creepy-Crawler Pot Pie

I can’t help but think of Thing from The Addams Family when I see these creepy hands coming out of my pot pie. Well, they’re not that creepy – I traced Amelia’s hand so they are a little more cute than creepy.

The pot pie filling is made pretty quickly on the stove and instead of using pie crust, I used hand shaped puff pastry. It really added to the Halloween spirit.

Creepy-Crawler Pot Pie

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 package frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
  • Pepper, to taste


  1. To make the creepy-crawler hands, pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out one sheet of puff pastry dough on a lightly floured surface. Using hand (or a hand cookie-cutter), cut out 6 hand shapes. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush with egg yolk. Bake pastry 15 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire rack to cool and set aside.
  2. To make chicken potpie, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour; cook, whisking, until bubbling. Gradually whisk in chicken broth. Stir over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a rapid boil and thickens. Stir in remaining ingredients. Return to a simmer; cook for 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Season as needed. Pour mixture into serving bowls and garnish with hands. Enjoy!
