Chicken Pot Pie

We've always wanted to make this. Thought it was difficult and would take much time, but it's not. Every other preparation for a main dish takes the same time and effort.
Give it a try!

For 6 persons

What we need:

700 gr chicken breasts, in pieces
500 gr mushrooms, the ones you like
450 gr peas
7 lentil onions
some olive oil
1 tbs butter
3 tbs flour 
2 tsp mustard
1 heat tbs creme fraîche
500 ml chicken broth (1 tablet&500 ml water)
fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
some nutmeg
7 sheets of puff pastry
1 egg

And what to do:

Turn on your oven to 180 C.

Put your chicken in a large pan with some olive oil and cook this untill they are almost cooked through.

Cut your lentil onions and mushrooms and bake these with the chicken for another 4 minutes.

Pour in your flour, mustard, creme fraîche and the chicken broth. Stir this well together. Pick the fresh thyme leaves and add them together with the bay leaf, some nutmeg and a good pinch of salt and pepper in your pan. 

Leave this to simmer untill it has thickened.

In the meantime roll out your puff pastry. Make it just a little bit bigger than your oven dish.

To decorate your top, you can make a flower (like we did; a rose), an animal, initials or something else from a tiny piece of puff pastry.

Now pour in your mixture and cover it with the puff pastry.

Put the sides with a little twist in, and make a pattern op top with your knife.

Put on your tiny figure for the decoration and brush everything with egg for a nice brown top..

Bake it for about half an hour, of until the crust is crispy and lightly brown.

Mmm, enjoy!
