Care for a western dinner tonight? We had Chicken Pot Pie for dinner. This is not my first attempt. Made it several time before. I used the store-bought pastry, normally sold at the bakery. First what we need to make is the filling. You can have a variety of filling to your liking.
My filling had chicken (as it is called chicken pie), celery, mushroom (diced), carrot (diced), onion (diced), fresh milk, multipurpose flour, salt and pepper.
First, heat the cooking pot on stove. Add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil or olive oil or butter.
Fry the onion till tender. Add chicken (I used the breast, cut into small pieces). Then add in carrot, mushroom, celery. Let it cook for a while,
Second, add some water and fresh milk to tender the ingredients.
Third, prepare the flour - water mixture. This will thicken the gravy.
Once cooked. Ad the flour-water mixture. Keep stirring.
Turn off the heat.
Preheat the oven to 180 celcius.
Ladle into a small bowl.
Flatten the dough pastry and cover the bowl thoroughly with it.
(Atikah likes the cheesy taste, so hers was sprinkle with some cheese before covering with pastry dough.
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or till brown.
Whalla! Ready to it.
Try it. It's delicious.
The recipe? It's a trial and error exercise.
