Chicken Pie

After a pretty mammoth session surfing on Sunday and another quick surf today, the body was feeling a bit stiff and sore so I passed up basketball for a lazy night in and decided to bake this CHICKEN PIE for dinner.
It's a dish I learned from a friend back in my uni days and is pretty simple to cook.

  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Potatoes
  • 1 can of Peaches/Apricots
  • Cheese (Blue/Brie/Camembert)
  • Pie Sheets
  • Oregano/Basil herb seasoning
  • Optional Veges (Broccoli/Green Pepper/etc)

Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and chop the potato and onion (plus optional veges) and cook in the fry pan with some olive oil, adding herb seasoning as desired until chicken is cooked and potato is almost cooked.
While it's cooking, slice the peaches (drain the juice first!) and the cheese. Grease the pie dish and lay the pie sheets (after stretching a bit) in with enough overlapping to cover the top. Once everything is set and cooked, let it cool a little then put everything in the pie, add peaches and cheese on top and fold over the pastry to cover.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees then place the pie in the oven and cook for about 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Take it out, cut it up and serve. Feeds 4 adults or 2 really hungry ones.
