Easy rustic chicken pie

Here is a perfect winter dish for your next weeknight dinner. This is truly a hearty recipe.


Ingredients and method

  1. Prepare your chicken. Our guest contributor actually lived on farm so plucked and gutted the roosters and prepared them for the dish. She used two roosters per pie.
  2. Finely slice about three sticks of celery
  3. Grate four smallish peeled carrots
  4. Finely chop three onions, leeks and garlic and mushrooms. Cooked all together gently in butter, and if it is a bit dry just add more butter.
  5. Add a tin of carnation evaporated milk and a container of carnation cooking cream. If needed, you can add curry powder, or put into a pie as is.
  6. Encase in puff pastry with an egg wash and top with sesame seeds.
  7. Bake in a moderate to hot oven until golden brown. Remove from oven and tuck in.
