Chicken and Mushroom Pie

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil 
  • 2 JUS-Pastry RolsIMG_2088
  • 250 g mushrooms chopped
  • One large onion chopped (or two small onions)
  • 2 Chicken breasts chopped
  • Gravy granules 
  • 280ml Double cream
  • Tablespoon flour
  • One egg yolk 
  • Seasoning: Pinch of salt, pepper, or chili powder
  • Cheese (optional)

Method:

  1. Roll out one pastry and fit it on to the oven proof tray. (Make sure there are no holes and the tray is fully covered).
  2. Heat the oil in the frying pan, add the chopped onions and mushroomIMG_2096s until softened. Add seasoning salt/chili powder/pepper (whatever you prefer). Remove from frying pan and place on a plate.
  3. Add chicken to the frying pan, cook until it turns white. When the chicken is white, add mushrooms and onions back into the frying pan and continue cooking.
  4. Boil water, place 3 teaspoons of gravy granules into the jug of boiling water, mix until thick. Add gravy into the frying pan, mix and leave to simmer.
  5. Add 250ml of double cream, the colour of the mixture should now be white/cream. Leave it to simmer.
  6. Add one tablespoon of plain flour as a thickening agent, mix thoroughly to prevent any clots.
  7. Continue to let it simmer for a few minutes.
  8. Pour mixture into the oven tray.
  9. Add cheese on top if you prefer.
  10. Roll out the second puff pastry to cover the tray. With a fork make a few holes on the pastry to allow air through.
  11. Break an egg into a bowl, brush egg yolk onto the top of the pastry, which will cause the pastry to turn golden brown when cooked.
  12. Place in the oven for about 25-30 minutes… Enjoy!
