FIDO Mason Jar Chicken Pot Pie with Butternut Squash
Bormioli Rocco Fido Latch lid 200ML Mason Jar
Mason jars: 4 Bormioli Rocco FIdo 6 3/4 oz Wide Mouth Latch Lid Canning Jars
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 cup onions, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
- 1 small bunch kale, center ribs and stems removed, leaves chopped
- Salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1/2 small butternut squash, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 1/2 rotisserie chicken, meat shredded to bite-size pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 large egg
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Heat oil in a heavy skillet or pan over medium-high heat. Add onions; sauté until beginning to brown, about 4 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium-low. Add garlic and sage to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic begins to brown, careful not to burn, about 2 minutes.
- Massage kale in separate bowl. Add kale and season with salt and pepper to pan with onions. Cook, tossing often, until wilted, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle flour over. Cook, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes.
- Stir in broth, 1/2-cupful at a time, then add squash. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until squash is just softened and broth is thickened, 8-10 minutes. Add chicken to skillet, stir, and season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
- Scoop filling into lightly greased jars.
- Unfold pastry and smooth any creases. Use mason jar lids to trace circle disks, 1/2 inch away from the rim, so the disk is larger than the mouth of the jars.
- Place pastry cutouts over filled jars allowing edges to hang over sides.
- Whisk egg and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Brush pastry with egg wash; cut five 1/2-inch slits in top to vent.
- Bake mason jar pot pies until pastry is beginning to brown, 15-20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375° and bake until pastry is deep golden brown and crisp, 15-20 minutes longer. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
- If for later – let cool naturally – then the individual pies can be frozen in the airtight latch lid jar

Ok.. this has been a touchy subject on many blogs for a long time. There is so much mis-information about this subject – and so many warning posts I have made over the last few years have been edited for those wishing to push one agenda or another that this post is necessary here on our website.
IF you ferment – these are GREAT jars – among the strongest on the market – but meant to have a VENT – not to self vent… PERIOD … no arguments – no rebuttals – I have been distributing the FIDO brand for 3 decades …. and I state for the record – they are NOT meant to “self vent” by stretching the metal rings. I have heard so many “I always do this” and “I never heard of a jar exploding from this” … well for the record – there are millions of these sold a year worldwide – and I can assure you that we DO hear of the mis-use and the problems associated with using the jar in a manner it was not designed for. These jars are made for canning – and can be used in the hot bath process – as well as stored in the fridge or freezer. They are meant to hold , not vent, pressure unless a vent kit is used.
So – the short and sweet of it – we LOVE to sell you this product – we love the fermentation business – but unless you choose to drill the lid and install a vent or buy a vent system (many companies offer a kit) – you do so at your own risk, as you are using the jar in a manner it was not intended to be used.
On a final note – I have heard nonsense every place I post, about the relationship of our company to Pickl-it (one such supplier of vented jars and lid kits) from people who attempt to debunk my warning above. As a few admins on those blogs point out – this is a ridiculous contention – we are a large supplier to the industry for many many years – and though we have a wonderful relationship with Pickl-it and they are a valued customer – we do not play favorites in our pricing or supply chain….. we sell the same FIDO jars to the Smithsonian Museums for usage in storing artificats – we are a business that welcomes any and all customers.
When used properly – FIDO jars (and ONLY Bormioli Rocco makes FIDO jars by the way) are a wonderful product for your fermentation and storage needs – none better on the market.
We welcome your orders here on our website .. and happy fermenting!
