  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 lb chicken breasts, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 Yukon gold potato, diced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 (750g) bag frozen vegetables
  • 1/2 sheet puff pastry cut into squares


  • Spread butter over the bottom of Instant Pot. Add onions, chicken, thyme, garlic, salt & pepper, potato, chicken broth, heavy cream and flour in that order, gently stirring flour overtop of mixture. Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal.
  • Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 3 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure then pressure cook for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 F. Grease ramekins with a little bit of cooking spray. Cut out 4 small squares or circles of puff pastry using a pizza roller to fit the tops of the ramekins and set aside.
  • Do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • When filling is done cooking, open lid and stir in veggies, mixing well. Divide filling among ramekins and then add piece of puff pastry. Bake on a baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
