Chicken pie


It was my first chicken pie!!! I've seen so many amazıng photos around the blog-world but have never tried any. I've never even tasted any!!! So yesterday I decided to experiment - a little bit of this, a little bit of that... and this is what I have. Well, it was really delicious!!! I especially liked the puff pastry and sauce mix with rosemary flavour! Yummy! 


What we need:

3 pieces of chicken breast
1 big onion
2 big carrots
1 bell pepper
220ml of fresh or frozen peas
one small zucchini
200ml of cream
100ml of milk
1 tbsp of flour
salt and pepper to taste
red pepper flakes
nutmeg
some fresh dill
puff pastry
egg for brushing the pastry
fresh rosemary
2 tbps of oil

What we have to do:


1. Season schicken breast with salt and pepper, chopped rosemary, brush it with oil and grill it ( or fry in a pan) on both sides for about 5 min or until it's almost done.
2. Cut vegetables and add them to a frying pan witha drizzle of oil. Add salt and pepper. When they are almost done, add peas, nutmeg, dill. Then add 1 tbps of flour, mix it and pour over cream and milk. Let it cook for 2-3 min. Finally add cut chicken pieces.
3. Take puff pastry and put one sheet on the casserole dish. Then pour in vegetable and chicken filling, then put one more layer of puff pastry. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle some fresh rosemary on the top.
4. Preheat the oven (190C) and bake the pie for about 25 min or until the pie is golden brown.

5. Serve the pie when it's hot with salad. We ate with simple tomato-cucumber-lettuce-spring onion-radish-parsley salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Enjoy!
