Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan. Season the chicken to taste and fry for 5-8 mins until golden brown, turning occasionally. You may need to do this in two batches, depending on the size of your pan. Lift the chicken onto a plate and tip the bacon into the pan. Fry for 5 mins until crisp. Add the onion, mushrooms and thyme, then fry on a high heat for another 3 mins until the onions start to colour.

  2. Tip the flour into the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 min. With the pan off the heat, gradually stir or whisk in the stock, followed by the milk, then add the chicken back to the pan. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 30 mins. Spoon the filling into a large pie or baking dish (approx 20 x 30cm) with a lip and leave to cool.

  3. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. On a floured surface, roll the pastry to the thickness of two £1 coins. Cut a long strip as wide as the rim of the pie dish and, using a little of the egg, fix to the edge of the pie dish. Brush with egg, then lift the rest of the pastry over the pie, using the rolling pin to help. Gently press the edges with your fingers and trim with a sharp knife. Brush lightly with egg to glaze, then bake for 30 mins or until the pastry is risen and dark golden brown.

Fantastic pie. My husband said it was the best pie he ever had and kids loved it too. Very easy to make. Used leftover roast chicken which I added to sauce at very end. Will be a regular in our house.

Absolutely delicious! I'm jealous that I have to leave the leftovers with my boyfriend.
Changed the recipe a bit, used poached chicken breast (poached in the stock) and swapped out half the stock for white wine also used the Rough-puff pastry recipe.

This would be one of the nicest Chicken & Mushroom Pies I have ever tasted. I made this for my daughter and grandchildren and they absolutely loved it. Filed this under my "Cook Again" file.

I made this for dinner last night. i used leftover cooked chicken. I followed the recipe then added the chicken at the end. It was a great way of using up leftover chicken and so quick to make.

For, I think, the first time in my life the outcome looked like the picture! May have tasted different though as I left out the bacon and added more mushrooms (personal taste!).

Oooo lovely, I'm always on the lookout for Marrow fillings (bare with me and read on) as we grow so many. We like to cut the marrow into rings, fill em and roast (covered with foil). I think this would make the perfect filling.

I found this recipe really good! It tasted really nice and everybody in the family liked it. I think I will make it again some time but perhaps I will make lots of smaller pies so that we can have individual ones because i like pastry!!
