Sharing today with us is Adrienne Bogatie over from Kashering Your Life.
A little more about Adrienne:
I am a Married, full day working mom with 4 teenage children, living on a
tight budget. I blog about, helping frustrated moms, who are struggling to
save their sanity and their money by teaching them how to plan their
meals, their grocery shopping and their homes, through workshops and by
giving practical tips on my blog. Very few of my recipes take longer than
1 hour from prep to table, unless it is a slow cooker recipe.
She shares that it is one of her most favorite recipes: Easy-Made Chicken Pie
I very rarely have leftovers, but this time, I made too much, so using the leftover chicken from my http://kasheringyourlife.co.za/index.php/recipes/slow-cooked-chicken-stew/ I made a chicken pie.
I would say in an average household this would feed 4 people. In my house, it only fed 3!
- 2 cups diced cooked chicken
- 1 onion diced
- 2 baby marrows/courgettes sliced
- 2 cups mixed vegetables cut into small pieces or 250 g frozen mixed vegetables.
- 1/4 cup flour
- 60 g butter or margarine
- 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock
- 1/2 cup of cream or cream substitute (I use Alpro single)
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1 portion of puff pastry, bought or home made.
Pre heat your oven to 200 C. Grease your dish, a deep souffle dish works well.
Saute your onion and baby marrow in the margarine for a few minutes till the onion is glassy, add your mixed vegetables.
Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir until well coated, then add your chicken stock and stir until it begins to thicken. Add your cream/ Alpro and chicken pieces, continue stirring, once it is well mixed pour it into your dish.
Brush the edge of the dish with some of the beaten egg, and lay your puff pastry over the top covering the edge of the dish as the pastry will shrink slightly during cooking. http://kasheringyourlife.co.za/index.php/recipes/easy-puff-pastry-recipe/
Brush the pastry with the remaining egg and bake for 25 minutes or till the pastry is a light golden brown.
