Chicken and Mushroom Pie

Sweat some onion in a pan with a little oil, add the chicken pieces and sliced mushrooms. i added some sweetcorn too. Spice it a little to your taste. I kept it very bland just salt and pepper mind you i sneaked a little cumin in mind you i added some All spice too well not so bland after all.

In the mean time add some butter to the pan and about a table spoon of cornflour mix well , add a little milk. Dissolve a veg's stock cube into about 400mls of hot water, add this mix to the pan and allow to heat

Until it becomes a thickish mix. NOW add this mix to the chicken and mushroom.

Roll out your pastry , i used puff pastry made. Line your pre oiled dish with the pastry sheet . Fill it now with the cooled filling mix

Roll out a roof for your pie and secure well

I made a tin foil frame i don't know the proper name for it but its to prevent the pie opening during baking and the filling spilling from the sides.

Made some slits with a knife on the top.
Brush it with egg and allow to brown well in the oven.

Now once cooked allow it to cool as it will hold a firm texture and not run , as my lot were hungry mine was cut whilst still hot.

We had ours with some steamed veg ,

What a beautiful crust, it looks so yummy, I can see why your family couldn't wait.

We had a horrible ice storm so my house is filled with friends and family that have no power. This should be a fun dish to make for everybody. Though it would take ten pies... I am off to make waffles for their breakfast.

I just love your recipes, thank you.

hiya Babara
where is it you live again, i think it's lovely community spirt esp in these times. I can just imagne a scene with everyone huddled around the open fire. Ten pies is a lot , better to opt for something easier but with extrsa hands on deck well maybe?
Hope they enjoyed thier waffles.
thank you for your kind commets.
