  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1 c peas thawed if frozen
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup undiluted
  • 1 8 oz container reduced fat sour cream
  • pinch fresh ground pepper
  • 1 8 oz package shredded sharp cheddar, divided
  • 12 Ritz crackers crushed
  • 1 T unsalted butter melted
  • 1 pkg frozen large puff pastry shells 6 shells


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Remove the meat from the chicken bones, discarding the skin and bones. Chop the chicken into bite-size pieces. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, peas, soup, sour cream, pepper, and 1-1/2 c cheese. Spoon mixture into a 2-qt baking dish.
  3. Combine the remaining 1/2 c cheese, crackers, and butter. Sprinkle evenly over top of the casserole. Bake 30 minutes, uncovered, until bubbly. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  4. Increase the oven temperature to 425F. Remove the pastry shells from the package and place on a bake sheet with the "lid" side up. Bake according to package directions.
  5. To serve, place a puff pastry shell on the dish. Using a fork, pry off the "lid". Spoon casserole into the shell and enough so it is overflowing. Repeat with the remaining shells and serve immediately.
