Does anyone have a chicken & mushroom pie recipe? Watch
I have looked online but none of them seem to turn out like a Pukka Pie - they don't have the same type of sauce, have additional ingredients, only have puff pastry on top (I want it to be like an actual pie, like a base of pastry too) etc...
Anyone able to help me out?
Hmm, these are the ingredients on a pukka pie box:
Water, Wheatflour, Margarine (contains Vegetable Fat and Oils, Vegetable Emulsifiers: Mono-and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Soya Lecithin, Natural Vegetable Colours: Annatto, Curcumin), Chicken (14%), Mushroom (4%), Onion, Modified Maize Starch, Chicken Flavour (contains Celery, Flavour Enhancer: Monosodium Glutamate,Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein, Rusk, Spices, Natural Flavourings, Herbs), Salt, Pepper.
This is what I would do anyway:
Make some pastry and put in pie mold.
Fry up some chicken, onions garlic and mushrooms , then add some cream, salt, black pepper, and brandy and mix together.
Put into pie and cook in oven.
Put mushrooms in a pan and boil with water only, make a roux in another pan with butter and plain flour, add stock from mushrooms and it will thicken, salt and white pepper to taste, there's your pukka type sauce. Add left over cooked chicken and encase or just do a top of puff pastry. It works
