Chicken Pie Recipe

Chicken and Mushroom Pie

I added this recipe for chicken pie to my chicken pie recipe collection because it's rich, creamy and full of flavour. It's an easy chicken recipe too and don't count on there being any leftover.



My biggest problem when cooking chicken pie filing is that I like to taste it as I'm cooking it so I can adjust the flavours of course...So I usually end up being quite full by the time the pie is ready. Embrace comfort food cooking and try this chicken pie.

Makes: 6 individual pies, or one large pie.
