Our latest addition to Pepper & Me, Ella has created this smash hit One Pot Chicken Pie using our hottest summer product, Dude Ranch. Your family will love the soft pieces chicken and vegetables in a creamy cheesy Dude Ranch sauce.
750g Chicken thigh or breast
1 onion, brunoise
2 carrots, brunoise
3 Potatoes, peeled and brunoise
½ stick celery, brunoise
3 Tbsp Dude Ranch
3 Tbsp Flour
450ml chicken stock
2 Sheets puff pastry
Preheat oven to 180 fan bake.
Brown off the chicken in a little oil, don't worry if it sticks to the pan, it's all flavour, Set aside.
Melt the butter in the same pot and add in onion, sweat down with a good pinch of man grind until soft.
Add in carrot, celery and potato, cook down just starting to soften.
Once soft add in Dude ranch and flour, stir in to coat all of the vegetables.
Slowly add in the chicken stock bit by bit, stirring in between each addition, if you add a bit too much stock you can make a slurry of 2 Tbsp cornflour and 2 Tbsp water to thicken the mix up.
Keep on the heat for around 10 minutes or until the vegetables are starting to soften. Add in the cooked chicken and stir to combine.
Once chicken is added, take off the heat and allow to cool to room temperature. You can leave it in the fridge as well.
Once cooled, place the puff pastry on top and brush with a beaten egg or milk.
Place in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the pastry is golden and cooked through.
Pull out and let cool to enjoy.
For a vegetarian option, leave the chicken out and swap the stock to vegetable stock.
