Vashnee’s Chicken and Mushroom Pies

TRH Vashnee's Chicken and Mushroom Pies.jpg

Chicken breast cut into small cubes
Chicken thigh meat cut into small pieces
(quantities of the above meat depends on how many pies you are making)

I used 1 chicken breast and 2 thighs
1/2 an onion finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 cloves garlic grated
1 heaped tablespoon corn flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
ready made puff pastry cut into rounds

In a heavy base pan, heat olive oil and butter
Add chopped onion, thyme & saute until onions soften
Add chicken, garlic, salt & pepper and cooked until lightly browned.
Add cornflour and cook for about 2 minutes
Add milk and water and stir to incorporate all residue from pan
Cover and simmer until sauce thickens. Allow filling to cool completely

Assembling pies
Take a pastry round and brush egg wash around the edges
Spoon desired amount of filling into centre and cover with another pastry round
Seal edges by pressing a fork around.
Prick holes ontop of pies
Refrigerate prior to baking
Brush with egg wash and bake at 200°C until golden brown.
