CURSED CHICKEN POT PIE
We all know the all comforting chicken pot pie, but what happens when you make it in the middle of October, right at the peak of the darkest month of the year. You may just very well end up with a CURSED CHICKEN POT PIE.
You start off making the classic chicken pot pie, with tender juicy chicken thighs, mushrooms, peas, carrots all in a rich creamy sauce. But when the border between our world and the dark world thins, sometimes a little evil sneaks in. Sometimes a curse is placed on our humble pie, leaving you with a more sinful and definitely more sinister chicken pot pie.
You have be warned. Cook and enjoy this sinister pot pie on your own terms. You may very well end up eating this pie for 4 all by yourself, that is the curse you are putting yourself into.
Cursed, Sinister and so so sooo Sinful
400g Chicken Thighs
Closed Cup Mushrooms
1/2 Cup of Frozen Peas
1/4 Cup Double Cream
500ml Chicken Stock
5tb Flour (All Purpose)
With your knife, yes you need a knife to defend yourself but most importantly to slice your chicken into bite size pieces.
Peel and roughly chop your carrots, and wash and slice up your mushrooms.
In a largeeee pot or cauldron heat up some oil on medium high heat add in your chicken and let them sizzle and put on some good colour.
Once your chicken is about cook add in your carrots and mushrooms and give them a stir around.
Once your mushrooms have shrunk add in 5tb of all purpose flour and give it a gentle stir around. Followed by 500ml of chicken stock and give it a good mix, now let it simmer for 5-10 minutes till the carrots are just about to soften.
Lastly add in 1/4 cup of double cream and 1/2 a cup of frozen peas, and season with salt and black pepper to taste. Let it bubble away for another 5-10 minutes till you end up with a nice thick, creamy chicken filling.
Whilst it is simmering away open up your puff pastry and with your baking tray or pie/cake tin place it over your puff pastry and with a knife cut out a slightly bigger version of it. Now you should have a sheet of puff pastry that just covers the top of your tray/tin.
Now with your artistic skills, cut our your face you can see below for some ideas and steps on how to do it.
Place your puff pastry onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and give it a good brush with some beaten up egg and into the oven at 170°C for 5-10 minutes till it just starts to brown.
Pour your saucy chicken mixture into your baking tray/tin and slide your cursed face pastry over and set it into the oven for another 5-10 minutes till the filling is bubbly and the pastry is light crispy and curseddddd.
Gently dust the eyes with some parsley and enjoyyyyyy.
Enjoy and be warned, they have the tendency to be super hot even after sitting out for a while, i guess that is just part of the curse.
