Best of all – you can freeze the chicken mixture in advance, and it can be turned not just into a pie, but add some pasta and you have a fancy pasta dish!

Method

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie:

  1. In a heavy based saucepan, fry off the garlic, onion and bacon pieces until cooked through.
  2. Add the chicken mince and cook for about 3 - 4 minutes or until cooked through. Roughly dice and return to pot.
  3. Stir in the frozen vegetables and the milk and the grated cheese, cook for about 5 - 7 minutes or until the vegetables are tender (stir often).
  4. Season according to taste.
  5. Dissolve about a teaspoon of cornflour in a tablespoon of warm water to make a paste and add until you get the desired consistency - like a thick soup.
  6. Pour the mixture into a Pie dish and add the puff pastry.
  7. Cook in a hot oven for about 20 minutes or until the puff pastry is nice and brown.

Notes

Recipe Hints and Tips:
  • The Chicken Pot Pie mixture can be frozen (minus the pastry).  Seal in a ziplock bag for up to three months.
