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 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
A loving close up of some bubbling butter and browned mushrooms.
That's the stock I was talking about - after a quick hard reduction
Note the arty chicken motif
And the chicken...
The final product.....absolutely lovely
And this was even better the day after.....
