Chicken Pie

Cook: Scott Penrose

Quantities vary depending on how big you want your pie.
Two or three chicken breasts makes quite a lot of pie for two people.

puff pastry sheets
chicken breasts
half as much mushrooms as chicken, chopped
1 blob of butter
1 tbsp flour
white wine
black pepper

Cut chicken breasts into cubes and fry lightly.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Stir in flour to make a paste.

Add milk gradually, stirring over low heat until you have a smooth sauce.
Remember, you're going to add some wine so keep it fairly thick.

Add some white wine - try not to make the sauce too thin.
Add mustard (we use whole grain), pepper and garlic to taste.

Add mushrooms and chicken. Aha! The saucepan's too small isn't it. In that case, you can add them to the pie separately.

Grease your pie dish. Place puff pastry to completely cover the bottom and sides. Pour in your mixture. Cover pie with more pastry.

Cook in a moderate oven until the pastry is golden brown.
