Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie

Easy Chicken and Mushroom pot pie 

There is nothing more satisfying than a good old British pie. This Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie is one of my favourite chicken pies and is really quite delicious.

Chicken and mushrooms have always gone well together I find. My daughter is a bit fussy about the mushrooms but I cut them large enough so we can fish them off her plate before serving up.

Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie Casserole

I made this chicken recipe this week as it is British Pie week between the 4th and 10th of March this year. It is a really easy homemade chicken pot pie to make. The recipe uses a chicken pot pie filling which is a very good chicken mushroom casserole in its own right.

So if you do not want to serve up as a pie, you can serve up the filling as a casserole instead and save the hassle with the pastry.

Us Brits do love a bit of pastry though! Pies are in our blood. Check out this Wikipedia link to see just how many different types we have.

Campbell’s chicken soup

When I was little, my Granny used to make a chicken and mushroom casserole with Campbell’s chicken soup, which I loved. It was so easy to make and really very tasty. We used to eat it with boiled rice.

However, if you were to compare it to this homemade chicken and mushroom pie recipe, I think you would find this is vastly superior. Sorry Gran, wish you were here to try mine xx 🙂

There are many ways to make a chicken and mushroom pie. Quite often people will vary them by adding peas or leeks, which can be a great addition. But I think that this is simple and tasty, it does not need any extras. You can always serve up with peas on the side of course if you wish.

The trick is to get the sauce to the right consistency and taste. Follow the method to do this. You can also make it creamier by adding some cream to the sauce at the end, but I did not do this, and I do not think it is necessary. The sauce is creamy enough.

Pastry type

I have cheated here by using a ready-made puff pastry for the chicken pot pie crust, but of course, you can always make your own. You could also use a shortcrust pastry if you prefer, but I like the lightness of the puff pastry. Here I have served up with some delicious Belgian French Fries, but you could also serve with mashed potatoes and some carrots

If you like you can also make lots of individual chicken pot pies with this recipe and freeze them for later use.

Note you can, of course, use dried herbs if you do not have fresh ones. I just happen to have fresh parsley and Rosemary in my garden so it always says ‘fresh’ in the recipe!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and I challenge you to leave some for later 🙂 !

Chicken and Mushroom Pie

Chicken and Mushroom Pie

This deliciously creamy chicken and mushroom pie is a beautifully warming and tasty dish. Perfect for a cold winter's way.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 200g button mushrooms, sliced
  • A packet of ready-made puff pastry
  • 3 small onions, finely chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 6 tbsp plain flour
  • Vegetable oil (what you need)
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tsp dried Thyme
  • 1 sprig fresh Rosemary, chopped
  • 300ml milk
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Handful of fresh Parsley, chopped
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

  1. Cover the chicken pieces in seasoned flour and fry them in a pan in the vegetable oil, until they are browned on all sides. You may need to do this in batches. When done return the chicken to a plate.
  2. Then add the garlic, onions, thyme and Rosemary to the same pan, add some butter and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring now and again.
  3. Add the remains of the flour and mix, keeping on the heat for a minute.
  4. Add the stock, bit by bit until it is finished. Mix well, using a whisk.
  5. Add the milk slowly and keep heating until the sauce begins to get thicker.
  6. Then add the chicken back to the pot with the mushrooms. Add the lemon juice and season to taste.
  7. Then heat on the hob for about 20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened to your required consistency. Season again to taste and add the chopped parsley.
  8. Then add the sauce to a pie dish. The dish can now be put in the fridge and cooled until you want to finish cooking it. 
  9. When ready to cook, roll out the pastry and cover the sauce mix, making sure you give it a brush with milk when you are finished. Do not do this beforehand or the pastry may dry out before you are ready to cook it.
  10. Pop into a pre-heated 180C oven and heat for 30-40 minutes or until the pastry has cooked.

Notes

Serve up with accompaniments of your choice. This pie, with its delicious sauce is great with mashed potatoes and peas, but also good with a salad and some Belgian frites like the pics show.

If you have leftovers, they will keep nicely in the fridge and heat up beautifully the next day, as we did with this one.

I hope you enjoy!
