Chicken Pie

Chicken Pie – creamy centre in a buttery flaky crust

Chicken pie is comfort food indeed! I like a pie that has a creamy centre and a crispy crust. This recipe has a buttery flaky crust – perhaps a little too rich – as the filling is creamy. Puff pastry appears to be a better combination and I used some of the chicken filling to make chicken puff using store-bought puff pastry.
