  • Serves: 2 (double the quantities if serving 4)
  • Prep Time:  15 mins approx
  • Cooking Time: 45 minutes approx
  • Ready In: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Rapeseed Oil or Olive Oil
  • 2 medium to large Chicken Breast Fillets – cut into chunks or strips
  • 1 large Red Onion – chopped
  • 6 – 8 medium Mushrooms – sliced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper – sliced
  • 1 Leek – sliced
  • 2 tbsp Plain Flour
  • ¼ tsp Paprika
  • 400 ml Chicken Stock (1 stock cube)
  • 200 ml Semi Skimmed Milk
  • 1 pack Ready Rolled Puff Pasty Sheet – around 320g (you will just need half for the recipe)

Method

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the chicken pieces
  • Fry for 5 minutes on a medium heat until the chicken is lightly browned
  • Add the paprika, mushrooms, red pepper and leek to the pan then fry gently for 4 minutes
  • Add the flour to the pan and stir for 1 minute
  • Add the chicken stock and milk to the pan and stir well for 1 minute
  • Bring to the boil then place a lid on the pan (or transfer to a stock pot with a lid) and simmer on a low heat for 25 minutes
  • Whilst the chicken and mushroom filling is cooking, cut your puff pastry sheet into 4 equal parts and place them onto a large oven tray
  • Place in a preheated oven and bake for around 20 minutes, keeping an eye on the top to ensure it does not overcook or burn
  • Steam your vegetables, aiming for them to be cooked at the same time as your chicken and pastry are ready
  • When cooked, place a serving of the chicken and mushroom pie filling on each plate with the puff pastry on top together with your green vegetables and potatoes or chips
