Chicken pie in a pot |

chicken pie

We have all had them before from our local pub, these wonderful little chicken pot pies can be made as 1 large pie or in individual little pots or bowls.

What you need

1 cup potato cubed small
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup chopped carrot
75ml melted butter
125ml flour
500ml chicken stock
125ml pouring cream
125ml milk
Salt and pepper to taste
4 cups cubed cooked chicken
Pastry (supermarket frozen)

The process

In a pot on a medium heat melt the butter. Add the potato, celery, onions and carrots and cook, stirring continuously for about 10 minutes or until the onion is transparent.

Add the flour, mix well and cook for a minute or 2. Add the chicken stock, cream and milk and stir until it is well combined and begins to thicken.

Season with salt and pepper, add the chicken and combine everything well.

The mixture should be fairly thick and bubbles should be popping gently on top.

Remove from the heat and pour into a casserole dish.

Top with the thawed pastry, wash with a little milk, cut slits to allow the air out and bake in a hot 200 Celsius oven for 45 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

    This is a great dish. I used scone dough and cut it out into rounds (as in scones) and placed them on top of the mixture and baked it in the oven. I do like the idea of seperate pie-lettes as you can freeze them for da RUGBY.

    I tried this recipe last night and even though I didn’t have pastry I improvised.

    I made the filling as a dish and then made yellow rice to go with it.

    It was an immediate hit!!

    Thank you so much!!

    This site is one of the best sites that I have found.

    Keep it going!!

    Looks great for a potjie dish with a dumpling crust instead of the pastry. Can’t wait to try it
