Chicken Jalousie Recipe

Serving Size:
Makes 6 portions
Time:
Approx 60 minutes
Difficulty:
Easy

Ingredients

  • 2 packs of frozen puff pastry (defrosted) *
  • 1 egg, beaten to glaze
  • 6 chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 pack bacon, diced 
  • 1 small tin sweetcorn 
  • 1 medium tub of Philadelphia cream cheese 
  • 250g mushrooms, chopped 
  • 1 onion, diced 
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • mixed herbs (to taste)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

* You can, of course, make your own puff pastry! This may work out cheaper, however I use the premade stuff just for speed and simplicity. Just please remember to defrost it fully! I keep forgetting to do this…

Directions

  1. Cook your chicken, bacon, onion, garlic and mushrooms and leave aside to cool completely.
  2. Preheat your oven to roughly 180C and lightly grease a baking tray. 
  3. Roll out your pastry to fit the tray.
  4. Drain the cooled chicken, bacon, onion, garlic and mushroom. The less liquid getting into the pie, the better! No soggy bottoms here… Another tip – if you have a gas hob, lightly cook the base of your pie on the tray above the medium flame!
  5. Mix your now cold chicken, bacon, onion, garlic and mushrooms, with the sweetcorn and Philadelphia cream cheese. Use this opportunity to season with herbs, salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Pour out your mixture and spread it on the pastry, leaving 1cm around the edges. Cover this 1cm border in the egg.
  7. Roll out a second sheet and cut a slit in the centre (allows steam to come out) and carefully lay this on top of the mix. 
  8. Seal the edges together by pressing them together or folding where possible to keep the mixture in, then glaze the entire pie in the egg. 
  9. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until golden, and serve with whatever sides you choose!

So a simple enough recipe for anyone who likes pie! Let me know if you give it a try and what you think of it!
