Thought of having chicken pie and mushroom lasagna for last Saturday's dinner. I refer to this recipe and made a 9 inche chicken pie.
What you need:
125gm plain flour, sifted
75gm cold butter
1/2 tbsp sugar
a pinch of salt
1/2 egg yolk
1-2 tbsp cold water
50gm mixed vegetables
50-70 ml water
1 medium onion, diced
150gm chicken breast meat, diced
130gm potatoes, boiled, peeled and diced
1tsp salt to taste
1 tsp sugar
some black pepper
1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water for thickening
1/2 egg + a little salt, lightly beaten
What you do:
1.Pastry: Put all ingredients ( except egg yolk and water) into a mixing bowl and mix to a crumble. Add in egg yolk, water and mix into a soft dough. Keep dough in the fridge and rest for 30 minutes.
2. Filling: Heat up oil in wok, fry the onion until soft. Add chicken meat, mixed veggies, mushrooms, fry for a while to break up chicken. Add in potatoes, water and cook for about 5 minutes. Add in sugar, salt and black pepper. Add in the cornstarch and stit to thicken mixture. Taste and leave to cool for later use.
3.Take some dough and press into pie or tart. Poke hole on the base using a fork, place filling on top and press firmly. Cut another piece of dough to cover the top. Using fork, poke a few more times on the cover of the pie and glaze with beaten egg.
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 30 minutes
