Halfway Homemade Chicken Pie

20130831_185914This is a great recipe as it is super quick and really fool proof. I think it is the perfect comfort food for when the temperature drops.

Ingredients:

  • Roast Chicken
  • 1 Tsp Oil
  • 1 Carrot, diced
  • 1/2 Onion, diced
  • 1 Leek, sliced
  • Knorr Cream of Chicken Packet of Soup
  • Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
  • 1 Egg, beaten

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Remove the skin from the chicken and flake the meat. Place in pie dish.
  3. In a deep frying pan, heat the oil and add the carrot, onion and leek. Stir untill slightly browned and turn down heat.
  4. According to packet instructions, pour the powder into a heat proof jar and add a small amount of boiled water to make a paste. Add the remaining boiled water and stir continuously.
  5. Pour the soup into the frying pan and heat until thickened. Remove from heat and mix with chicken.
  6.  Roll the puff pastry out on a floured surface. Be careful not to overwork the pastry as it is very sensitive. Cut to size of your pie dish.
  7. Brush the inside rim of your pie dish with egg and place pastry on top. Gently press the pastry to the side of the dish with a fork.
  8. Brush the entire pastry with egg. Press a few small holes in the center of pastry for stream to escape. This is also the time to add decorations and remember to brush them with egg as well.
  9. Bake in the oven for 25-30 min or until golden brown.
