Pretend Chicken Pie

This recipe came from yokospungeon via lizmopuddy  but originally came from Johnnydsgirl, so thank you :o)  I made it today and the troops thoroughly enjoyed it! I did really want to make the veggie version but they didnt have any Quorn at the supermarket..... Can you beleive that!!!!????

1 packet puff pastry - 1 packet of Ouorn peices (or 4 chicken breasts chopped)- 1 onion - 50g frozen peas - 40z mushrooms - 1 clove garlic - 1 red pepper - 1 green pepper - 25g flour - 25g butter - 125ml milk - 125ml stock - pinch of mustard powder - fresh parsley - beaten egg for glaze

  • Preheat oven to 220C
  • Fry Quorn/Chicken peices in butter (i used olive oil) and set aside
  • Fry onions, peppers and garlic (i roughly chopped all these)
  • Add mushrooms and cook over a low heat
  • Add flour and cook for 2 mins
  • Add milk and stock slowly, stirring continuously.  Bring to the boil
  • Add Quorn/Chicken and simmer for 5 minutes
  • Add peas, mustard and parsley.
  • Transfer to a shallow casserole dish and top with a pastry lid.  Brush with the egg
  • Cook in the oven for 30 minutes or until the pastry is cooked through and golden.

I must say, im not known for following recipes exactly so for mine, firstly i had to double the quantities (as i was feeding 6) and i used a teaspoon of mustard powder.  I dont like green peppers so i added small fresh broccoli florets instead..... Heres the result......

It was delicious!!!!! I served it with a vegetable selection and roast potatoes......
