Mushroom Pies

Delicious, creamy mushroom and chicken filling in puff pastry

INGREDIENTS

  • Chicken - 1kg

  • Mushrooms - 1 pack of mushrooms (approximately 9)

  • Butter - 2 tbsp

  • Onion - 1 large or 2 small

  • Puff Pastry - 500g pack

  • Chillies - 10 or however many you'd like

  • White Sauce

  • Oil (to grease tray)

INGREDIENTS FOR THE WHITE SAUCE

  • Plain flour - 1 tbsp

  • Butter - 1 tbsp

  • Milk - 2 cups

  • Salt - 1/2 tsp

  • Black pepper - 1/4 tsp

EQUIPMENT:

  • Wok

  • Chopping board

  • Knife

  • Saucepan

  • Baking tray

  • Spoons

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Dice the chicken, chillies and onion and slice the mushrooms.

  2. Add the butter and onions to the wok and cook on a medium heat until the onions are soft.

  3. Add the chicken, mushrooms and chillies and cook together until chicken is cooked through and mushrooms have softened.

  4. Switch off the heat for the chicken mixture and begin to make the white sauce.

  5. To a saucepan add the flour and butter until frothy. Then add the rest of the ingredients and keep stirring so it doesn't become lumpy. Cook until thick and saucy.

  6. Let the sauce cool for 5-10 minutes and then add it to the chicken mixture. Mix together.

  7. Grease your tray and roll out your puff pastry as desired. This can be as one big pie or multiple smaller ones. I made one 9" by 9" pie and four smaller ones. For larger pies you'll need to roll out two sides of pie which are the same size (one for the base and one to cover).

  8. Once you've rolled it out as you wish, fill with as much filling as you want. Remember not to overfill as you want it to close and not leak.

  9. Optional: apply a thin even coat of egg wash to your pastries.

  10. Bake at gas mark 5 (190 degrees C) for 20-25 minutes until a golden brown colour.

  11. Wait until slightly cooled and enjoy!
