Chicken Bacon & Mushroom Pie

1 Size 7 cooked chicken, skin and fat removed and flesh sliced
150grms lean bacon diced
1/2 tsp tarragon
1/2 tsp butter
150grms mushrooms sliced
2 TBsp butter
3 TBsp flour
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper
300grms flakey puff pastry (store bought)

Stir fry the diced bacon and tarragon in 1/2 TBsp butter . Add the sliced mushrooms, stir until cooked. Remove from heat and combine with cooked diced chicken.

Melt the 2 TBsp butter in a saucepan, stir in the flour and remove from heat and add a small part of the milk, return to heat and blend until smooth. Repeat this process until all the milk is smoothly blended into the butter and flour to make a thick white sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Stir sauce into the chicken and bacon ingredients.

Roll out pastry to line a 23cm round pie tin. Spoon filling into pie, brushing the pastry edges with water. Roll out pie top, place on top of filling and press edges together. Trim off excess pastry and make 4-5 air holes to allow steam to escape.

Glaze with a mixture of egg and milk and bake on lower rack of oven at 230 degrees C for 15-20 minutes till golden brown.

Petal do you roast or boil the chicken?

Roast it or buy a ready cooked chicken from the supermarket. which ever is easiest.

Make this all the time, with leftover chicken you can also put in corn.

Dont worry about the pastry just serve with buttery mashed potatoes.

Or make a pie with the mashed potatoe on top or the bottom
