Serves

2-4 People

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup Cooked Chicken (diced)
  • ½ cup cooked Ham (diced)
  • 50gr Mushrooms (Sliced)
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 1 cup Milk or Cream,
  • 1 Packet rolled puff pastry
  • 1 small bunch parsley
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)

Method

Over a medium heat cook the mushrooms and butter in a heavy based pot. Add the flour and continue cooking for 1 minute. Slowly add the milk or cream, stirring until the mix comes back to boil.

Add the cooked chicken, ham and chopped parsley. Check for Salt & Pepper.
Take 4 bowls and line with cling film. Divide the chicken & ham mixture between the 4 bowls and place in a fridge to set. Once set you are ready to assemble the pies.
Cut 4 smaller discs of puff pastry as bases and 4 larger discs for top. Turn the set chicken & ham mix out and place one on each smaller pastry disc.

Brush the edges with the beaten egg before covering with a larger disc of puff pastry. Using a fork, press or crimp the edges together, brush the top with egg wash before cooking for 20 minutes in a hot oven (gas mark 6).
Serve warm.
