Lemon Chicken Puff

I adapted this from a Pampered Chef recipe and we have always really liked it...the girls especially LOVE it!

*Popover Puff:
- 3 T. butter, divided
- 1 c. milk
- 6 eggs
- 1 c. flour
- 1/2 t. salt

*Chicken and Veggie Filling:
- 2 med. carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 c. sugar snap peas or broccoli florets (I've never tried the peas)
- 1 med. potato, diced
- 1/2 c. chopped onion
- 1 T. butter
- 2 T. lemon juice
- 1 can cream chicken soup
- 2 c. diced cooked chicken (I use a can of chicken)
- 1/4 c. FF sour cream
- 1 t. onion powder
- 1 t. garlic powder
- 1/4 t. pepper (or more)
- 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

* Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Melt 2 T. butter in microwave and whisk together with milk and eggs.
- Put 1 T. butter in bottom of baking dish (I use my trusty 2-qt. square one, but if you have a circle it would look better) and place in oven until melted.
- Add flour and salt to egg mixture and whisk until smooth. Pour batter into dish (on the melted butter) and bake 20 min. (I take out the top rack in my oven - it's gets pretty "puffed")
- Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 10-15 more minutes until puffed and golden brown.
* While the shell is baking, melt 1 T. butter in large sauce pan and stir in carrots, broccoli, potatoes and onion. Cook until veggies are tender.
- Add lemon juice, chicken and cream of chicken soup. Stir in spices and continue stirring until heated through.
- Stir in cheese keep warm until the puff is ready.
* Remove puff from oven and allow to cool and middle to fall, forming a shell.
- Spoon filling into center of puff and enjoy.
