    Chicken, Corn and Broccoli Pie - Food for The Prince and Princesses

    It's Thursday and My quest for food to woo the Grandchildren continues. 99% I'm on the button. Had a couple of so sos.
    I had some cooked chicken in the Freezer and I know they love pies.
    So this little gem evolved
    I used a 30 cm pie tin
    This was enough filling for that
    Chicken, Corn and Broccoli Pie


    2 tablespoons of butter
    2 tablespoons plain flour
    1 red onion finely chopped
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 cup of milk...you may need more
     Zest and juice of 1 lemon
    1 cup frozen corn
    1 head of broccoli finely chopped and blanched for about 2 minutes
    1 1/2 cups chopped chicken

    Puff Pastry Sheets

    Egg wash
    1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water to glaze

    Melt butter
    Add chopped red onion
    Season with Sea salt and Freshly ground black pepper
    Gently saute till onions are soft, Don't brown
    Add flour
    Stir and cook out for about 2 3- minutes
    Add milk
    Stir well till the sauce thickens
    Cook for another 3-4 minutes
    Stirring regularly so it doesn't catch on the bottom
    Add corn

    Then Broccoli, and chicken
    Then lemon Zest and Juice
    Taste and you will probably have to add more salt and pepper but it's your taste buds
    So it's up to you
    Cool

    Meanwhile pre-heat oven to 200C for Fan. 220C otherwise
    Lightly grease your Pan
    Line with pastry
    Fill with the chicken mix

    Top with Pastry lid
    Brush with Egg wash
    and bake

    It should take about 35 minutes
    Check after 15 minutes and turn the pan around

    The pie should be golden and crisp

    Can't wait till dinner

    Oh, I love this pie!! I will so be making this. I love this kind of dinner and this is a fabulous new way to make an old favorite, chicken and biscuits - with only a change of crust! Love it! Happy Pie Day!
