Homemade Chicken & Mushroom Pie

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

This chicken pie is really easy to make and it tastes so deliciously home made. I guess buying ready made pies would be easier, but I personally never buy pies. Somehow I never feel good after eating one, and that makes me wonder why. Making this chicken pie for your family will take you 35 min to prepare and 45 min to bake, but it will be well worth it.

Ingredients: Serves 4

4 chicken breasts cut into cubes
1 punnet mushrooms cleaned & sliced
2 potatoes peeled and cubed
200ml water
1 tsp salt or Herbamare
100ml cream or milk
1 Tbsp flour
1 packet Rolled puff pastry
Ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 200C
Melt butter and cook chicken pieces for about 5-7 min.
Add chopped potatoes, sliced mushrooms & seasoning.
Stir. Cover with just enough water and bring to the boil.
Turn down the heat and simmer until potatoes are soft.
Sprinkle flour over chicken, mushrooms, & potatoes. Stir.
Add the cream. Turn up heat until white sauce thickens.
Pour chicken and mushroom filling into a pie dish.
Grind black pepper on top ( Optional)
Roll out pastry and cut approximate size, and place
on top of pie dish. Cover pastry snugly to cover
chicken. Finish off edges and cut off
excess pastry. With offcuts make
leaves and place on top of your pie.
Brush with a little beaten egg.
Use knitting needle & poke holes
here & there for the steam to escape.
Turn oven down to 180C
Bake for 45 min or until cooked
and golden brown.
Keep an eye on the pie so the top of
the crust does not burn.
