Chicken Pie

Chicken Pie

This is a very delicious continental dish & is one of my favourites.

Ingredients:-

Potato – 2 big

Butter – 50 grams

Milk – 1/4 cup

Salt as needed

Chicken – 200 grams, finely chopped

Onion – 1 big, finely chopped

Greenchilly – 2 numbers, chopped

Ginger – 11/2 tbsp, minced

Pepper powder – 1 tsp

Garam masala powder – 3/4 tsp

Egg – 1, large; seperated

Bread crumbs – 2 tbsp

Method:-

Cook the potatoes along with their skin in your pressure cooker. Simmer for 20 minutes after the first whistle. Open the cooker after the pressure completely subsides. Peel the potatoes & mash them very well adding the milk when still hot. Add salt & the butter. Mix well & keep aside.

Mashed potato

Heat the oil & saute the onion, greenchillies & minced ginger. When the onion changes its color to light brown add the pepper powder, 3/4 tsp salt & the chopped chicken pieces. Stir fry for a minute; add 1/8 cup of water & cover cook on low heat for 20 minutes. Finally add the garam masala powder & fry for 1 more minute. Remove from heat & keep aside. Let the mixture cool slightly; add the beaten egg yolk & mix well.

The chicken mixture

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Spread the chicken mixture on your pie dish followed by the mashed potato. Spread the well beaten egg white on top of the potato & sprinkle the bread crumbs.

Bake at 180C for 30 minutes/ till the top of the pie is lightly browned.

Cut into wedges, serve hot & enjoy!!!
