Easy Chicken and Mushroom Pie

You can buy a Chicken and Mushroom Pie from the Supermarket and put it in the oven, but I guarantee it won’t taste as good as this! This is so easy to make (who makes their own puff pastry these days?) and totally delicious. The tarragon adds a lovely lemony twist.

Ingredients (serves 6)

(pre-heat the oven to 200 c)

olive oil

2 onions, chopped

2 sticks celery, chopped small

3 large/ 6 small carrots, chopped

3 large chicken breasts cut into small chunks

250 g mushrooms, chopped

2 chicken stock cubes

1 heaped tablespoon dried parsley

1 heaped tablespoon dried tarragon

1/2 pint water

2 teaspoons cornflour in little water

1 pack ready rolled puff pastry (all major supermarkets sell this in the butter section)

a little milk

Method

  • Heat the olive oil in a flame proof casserole dish and add the onion, celery and carrot, fry until soft and starting to caramelise.
  • Add the chicken pieces and continue frying until well browned then add the mushrooms and cook until going soft.
  • Sprinkle over the stock cubes, parsley and tarragon then add the water and stir well. Add the cornflour mix and stir until the mixture thickens.
  • Cut the puff pastry to the size of the dish, place on top of the chicken mixture, cut 2 slits in the middle to let out steam, then brush with the milk.
  • Put in the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes, checking after 20 to see if the pastry is cooked.
  • Serve with peas and new potatoes.

I always seem to have pastry leftover so why not try making my Cheat’s Strawberry Tart? Totally delicious!
