Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 skinless boneless free-range chicken thighs, seasoned
  • 8 rashers Scottish-style bacon, cut into large pieces
  • 1 onion, halved and sliced
  • 300g baby button mushrooms, sliced thickly
  • ½ bunch fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 200ml milk
  • 500g pack puff pastry, fresh / frozen and defrosted
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 200 – 220 degrees Celsius fan/gas.
  • In a large non-stick frying pan, heat the oil. Fry the chicken for 5-8 minutes, turning every 2 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  • Add the bacon to the pan and cook for three minutes, until crisp. Then add the onion, mushroom and thyme, and cook for 4 minutes over high heat, until crisp.
  • Stir in the flour, and cook for two minutes, then pour in the stock and milk.
  • Return the chicken to the pan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30-40 minutes, until the sauce thickens and the chicken is cooked and tender.
  • After, fill a large pie dish with the filling and set aside to cool.
  • Once cooled down, place the pastry on top of the pie dish. Remove any excess.
  • Brush the pastry with the egg to glaze.
  • Place the dish on an oven tray and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve with vegetables and gravy.
