Chicken Pie

Pin It Now!

If you are looking for buttery and flaky type of chicken pie this is not the one. This pie is made with simple pizza dough. I serve this pie as lunch for my family. They love it!

Just like pizza topping you can use any ingredients that you like to go along with the chicken. In order to make it flavourful and easy I seasoned the filling with instant mushroom soup powder. As for the topping you can just cover with the roll out dough instead of making crisscross pattern. However this pie looks more attractive with the special crisscross.

Adapted and modified from 阿芳的3杯面粉 cookbook recipe
Ingredients: yield 8” pie
(A) Filling
Cooked chicken breast (steamed), onion, carrots, sweet corns, green peas
1 packet instant mushroom soup powder

Some cheddar and mozzarella cheese

(B) Pie Crust
200g plain flour
½ tsp yeast
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
200ml liquid (mixture of 1 egg and water)

~ Filling
1. Shred the chicken meat and set aside.

2. Dissolve the instant soup powder with little water into paste. Set aside.

3. Cook the onion and carrot with oil till soft. Off the heat. Add in sweet corns, green peas, shredded chicken and instant soup paste. Mix well and set aside.

~ Pie crust
1. Put all ingredients together. Knead till form smooth dough. Cover the dough and rest for 30 minutes.

2. Divide the dough into 3 portions. Weight 70g each (2x 70g) for the pie topping and the balance of dough will be the pie base. Shape all into balls and rest for 10 minutes.

3. Roll out the base dough into round (slightly bigger than 8" mould). Transfer the base dough into the greased pie mould. Prick some holes with forks.
4. Meanwhile prepare the pie topping. Roll the other 2 dough into round shape (about size of 8”). Cut into strips.
5. Fill the pie base with the cool filling. Then spread the cheeses evenly on top.

6. Arrange the strips from a roll out dough onto the pie. Start design by adding strips from the other portion of dough one by one onto the pie. Make crisscross pattern. Once complete, brush the edge with water and seal it properly. Brush with egg wash.

7. Bake in preheated oven 170C for 25-28 minutes or till golden brown.

8. Immediately remove from mould and leave to cool on wire rack. It is best to serve warm. Enjoy!
