My granny does not know how to operate the oven. She was fascinated by the pastries can be easily defrosted and be filled with tasty ingredients. Once in the oven, she stood near it and observed the pastries being cooked. It really hit me on how I take things like this for granted. How even though technology has advanced, we shouldn't take it for granted.
Chicken Mushroom Pie3 pieces of puff pastries (into quarters)
300 grams chicken in cubes
1 tsp of garlic
2 cups of chopped mushrooms
seasoning such as salt, pepper and some mixed herbs.
1 spring of rosemary
(100 grams of bacon which I forgot!)
2 tablespoon of spread
1 tablespoon of flour
1 cup of soy milk
In a pan, saute chicken, mushrooms and garlic. In another pot, melt spread (butter or margarine) and stir in flour till golden brown. Whisk soy or normal milk in till it becomes thick. Add more milk or stock if needed if too thick. When it is done, your chicken should be browned. Add sauce to pan. Sprinkle in all seasoning and herbs. Season and taste if needed. Cook till it thickens. Then, cool.
Spoon mixture in each pastry. Seal with beaten egg. Use a fork to seal it tight if needed. Brush pastries with egg. Bake in 200 C oven for 30 mins.
Timely to post a pie.... because... today is Australia Day!
HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!
