Chicken Pie

It's bloody freezing in England at the moment. Perfect therefore for a pie!

So - I bought a few ingredients in Waitrose and then noticed Gordon Ramsey had a version in his pub food recipe book. This is a sort of amalgamation of ideas.

The cast:



The recipe called for poaching the chicken. I was a bit worried about this - but actually it turned out to be a great move as it then leant itself to a great stock for the liquor for the pie



After poaching



A loving close up of some bubbling butter and browned mushrooms.





That's the stock I was talking about - after a quick hard reduction



Pre baking.



Note the arty chicken motif



Post bake



And the chicken...



The final product.....absolutely lovely



And this was even better the day after.....
