Servings 6 people


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • 500 g chicken cubed
  • 150 g mushrooms cut into chunky pieces
  • 50 g butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 250 ml milk
  • 250 ml chicken stock
  • ¼ ground nutmeg
  • white pepper to taste
  • pinch salt
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 500 g ready-made puff pastry
  • 1 egg whisked


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C
  • Heat the oil in frying pan and fry onion and garlic until soft and onion is translucent. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the chicken to the same pan and cook for two mins, add the mushrooms and continue to fry until chicken is lightly golden. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan, stir in the flour and cook for about three minutes, stirring constantly until it has formed a thick smooth dough.
  • Mix the milk and stock together in a jug, add nutmeg, pepper and salt.
  • Slowly add to the saucepan, stirring constantly to avoid lumps forming. When a smooth sauce has formed, simmer gently until it thickens – be sure to keep stirring.
  • Mix in the parsley and combine with the chicken and mushroom mixture.
  • Spoon into your pie dish and set aside until completely cool.
  • Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface until it is large enough to cover you pie – and approx. 3 mm thick.
  • Brush the edges of the pie dish with egg, lay the pastry on top, press down the edges to seal and trim excess.
  • Brush the top of the pie with egg. Cut leaf shapes out of the left-over pastry to decorate the top.
  • Make 2–3 slits in the top of the pie to allow the steam to escape. Place in oven to bake for 20-25 minutes or until well risen and golden-brown on top.
