Ingredients
  • Filling:
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 227 grams Cremini Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 1 large Carrot, peeled & diced
  • ¼ cup All-purpose Flour
  • 2½ cups chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh Thyme
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 4 cups diced cooked Chicken, (white, dark or both)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen Peas
  • Salt & pepper
  • Crust & Assembly:
  • 1 recipe Savoury pie dough
  • ¼ cup All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 2 cups coarsely grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 3 tablespoons Milk
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C)
  2. In a large saucepot, melt the butter over medium-high heat and add the mushrooms, sautéing until almost all the juices cook away, about 6 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion and carrot and sauté 5 minutes more. Add the flour and stir constantly for about 2 minutes until the flour just begins to stick at the bottom. Add about ½ cup (125 mL) of the stock and stir (this will thicken quickly, but without lumps). Add another cup (250 mL) of the stock and stir, bringing to a full simmer before adding the remaining 1 cup (250 mL) of stock as well as the thyme and bay leaves. Bring this up to a simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low and cover, simmering until the carrots are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaves, add the diced chicken and the peas and heat until warmed through, season to taste and then cool to room temperature or chill to assemble later on
  3. To assemble, roll one of the discs of dough on a lightly floured surface to just under ¼ inch (6 mm) thick and into the shape of the baking dish you wish to use (it should hold about 2L, but can be any shape provided it’s more than 1 ½-inches (45 mm) tall). Dust the bottom of the baking dish with flour and line the dish with the dough, trimming away any excess
  4. Make the Cheddar topping by breaking up the other disc of pie dough into pieces in a bowl and add the additional flour and baking powder. Use a pastry cuter, or your hands, to break it down further and cut in the Cheddar cheese Whisk the egg and milk together and add this to the cheese crumble, stirring until blended (it will look lumpy)
  5. Spoon the cooled (or chilled) chicken filling into the lined baking dish and spoon the Cheddar crust onto top. Bake this for 30 minutes at 375°F (190°C) and then reduce the temperature to 350°F (180°C) and bake for another 30 minutes (adding 15 minutes more if the filling was chilled). Let the pie sit for 15 minutes before scooping to serve
  6. The chicken pot pie can be made up to 2 days in advance and reheated in a 325°F (160°C) oven
