Re: Chicken and Mushroom Pie - 30 minute recipe

Hope that thsi is the one: http://feedetgastro.wordpress.com/2010/ … icken-pie/

Have copied th whole recipe here just in case.....


Chicken Pie
(Adapted from Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals)

500g free-range chicken (you can use breast or thigh)
a knob of butter
1 bunch of spring onions
150g button mushrooms
1 heaped tsp plain flour (plus extra for dusting)
2 tsp English mustard
1 tbsp creme fraiche
300ml chicken stock
a few sprigs of thyme
1/2 a nutmeg, grated
1 sheet of pre-rolled puff pastry
1 egg
salt & pepper
extra virgin olive oil.


Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Chop up the button mushroom and spring onions and slice the chicken into strips or bite-sized chunks.



Heat a lug of olive oil and a knob of butter in a heavy-based pan over a medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms and spring onions to the pan with a tablespoon of plain flour and give it all a good stir. Mix in two teaspoons of English mustard, a generous tablespoon of creme fraiche and 300ml of good chicken stock (though I have used a stock pot and it was fine). Finally add some picked thyme leaves and a good grating of nutmeg, season with sea salt and pepper. Leave simmering on the stove whilst you sort out your pastry.



When I say “sort out your pastry” of course I simply mean get it out of the fridge and unroll onto a dry lightly floured work surface. Using a knife, lightly criss-cross the surface.

Once your chicken filling has thickened up slightly, tip it into a ovenproof baking dish slightly smaller than the sheet of pastry. Cover the filling with the sheet of pastry; don’t worry about the edges, just tuck them in around the filling.

Lightly beat the egg with a fork, then brush it over the top of the pie.

Bake on the top shelf of the oven for around 15 minutes, or until gorgeously browned.

If you want to go all the way Jamie, serve alongside peas and smashed carrots.

Re: Chicken and Mushroom Pie - 30 minute recipe

Good thumbsup

But when you read 'knob' and 'lug' .... wink  lol


Knob = a bit/little/palm sized....remember that it means a rounded door handle...
Lug = drop..

I hope that others will answer those questions help

Re: Chicken and Mushroom Pie - 30 minute recipe

I think of knob as a bit less than a teaspoon full and a lug as just over a teaspoon full ( pour for about 2 seconds !).
I find these loose terms interesting as we all have different interpretions of them . thumbsup

Re: Chicken and Mushroom Pie - 30 minute recipe

I think of a knob as about 2 Tablespoons, same for a lug - a couple of Tablespoons.  But, isn't it meant to be at the cook's discretion?  I'm more generous with the butter when cooking mushrooms because it really gives them a nice flavor.
