Easy Chicken pie

The ultimate comfort food, this creamy chicken pie offers a delicious and heart-warming meal, perfect for sharing with friends and family.

Ingredients

 

  • 4 Eagles Valley Chicken breasts
  • 320g ready-made puff pastry, rolled out.
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp dried rosemary
  • 600g chicken stock
  • 50g butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 egg, slightly whisked
  • Salt and pepper, to taste.

 

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 210˚C.
  • Peel and chop the carrots, potatoes and onions.
  • Place the chicken, carrots, potatoes, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper and stock to a large saucepan. Bring to the boil and let simmer for 15 minutes before turning off the heat.
  • When the chicken is nearly cooked, take another saucepan and add in the butter and the onion. Cook the onion until soft, around 5-7 minutes.
  • Mix the flour into the onion mixture using a large whisk and let it cook for around a minute. This will form a creamy paste.
  • Add in one ladle of the stock from the chicken broth mixture and stir in with a whisk. Repeat until you have removed most of the stock from the pan. Try to avoid pouring in the chicken or vegetables.
  • Pour the milk into the sauce and keep stirring. This mixture should thicken as it cooks. Add more seasoning as needed.
  • Once the mixture is almost boiling, add the chicken and vegetables to the sauce.
  • Fill your baking pan with the chicken mixture, and top with your puff pastry, trimming the excess dough off the sides. Feel free to decorate your pie top with any remaining dough. Brush the top of the pastry with your egg wash and pierce a couple of holes in the dough to ensure that some steam can escape.
  • Bake for around 20-25 minutes or until your crust is golden brown.
