Chicken & mushroom pies

Tender chicken in our creamy mushroom sauce, topped with our light, flaky puff pastry. Ready to cook in individual ramekins.

How to Cook

This recipe is made with some raw ingredients and isn’t suitable for microwaving, so please follow these cooking instructions carefully.

  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas
    mark 7.
  2. Remove all packaging, leaving the pies in their ramekins. For best results, brush the pastry with milk or whisked egg*.
  3. Place the ramekins on a tray in the centre of the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the pastry turns golden brown.
  4. Leave to stand for 4 minutes before serving in their ramekins. Be careful, they’ll be hot.
    Make sure your pies are piping hot throughout.

*Don’t worry, they taste just as good without doing this. It just makes them look even better if you want to impress!

Our Chef Recommends

Our ramekins are great, they make our pies feel a bit special. Which they are. The pie mixture is cooked like you would at home – slowly and with lots of love.

GARDEN PEAS WITH MINTED BUTTER
(Serves 2)

200g green peas (from about 500g of fresh pods, or you could use frozen)
25g butter
2 tbsp butter (to sauté the onions)
¼ medium onion, thinly sliced
10g fresh mint, chopped

1. Melt the butter in a small frying pan. Add the onion and sauté for about 5 mins until they tender.

2. In a small saucepan, add just enough water to cover the bottom and keep the peas from scorching (about 4 tbsp). Add the peas and onion. Cover and cook over a medium heat until the peas are tender (about 5—10 minutes, depending on size and freshness). If the butter is not at room temperature, melt it while the peas are cooking.

3. When the peas are done, drain them, then add the butter and mint. Serve with a freshly baked Charlie Bigham’s Chicken & Mushroom Pie.

Something
to drink?

Smooth dry white wines, like chardonnay, would be our tipple of choice here. Either that or a bright, fruity cider.
