Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Thaw the puff pastry while you work for about 30-40 minutes- do not over thaw.
  • Prep ingredients and set aside; whisk the broth, milk, hot sauce if using and tomato paste together so that is dissolved and keep nearby in a bowl or measuring cup.
  • Spray a large oblong baking dish or casserole (lasagna sized) with nonstick spray and keep nearby.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and saute the diced chicken, diced sausage, bell pepper, celery, onion and seasonings until the chicken is cooked through and the onion is translucent.
  • Stir in the wine and deglaze the pan.
  • Add the flour mixture and coat the vegetables and meat, cooking for about a minute to remove the raw taste.
  • Add the chicken stock mix and the can of tomatoes with juice and cook, stirring, until mixture thickens.
  • Add the shrimp and cook until they curl and turn opaque.
  • Remove the filling from the heat and stir in the frozen crumbled rice and spread it all in the casserole.
  • Top the mix with the puff pastry and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden.
