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.....
