Ingredients

  • 25g butter
  • 225g button mushrooms, halved
  • 250g mascarpone or full-fat cream cheese
  • 150ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1/2 tsp English mustard
  • Westin Gourmet Chicken Breasts, cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tbsp snipped fresh chives
  • 300g ready-made puff pastry (but you can make your own if you wish)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C with a baking sheet inside to heat.
  2. In a large fry pan, melt the butter and gently cook the mushrooms until tender.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the mascarpone until soft.
  4. Use 125ml of milk and mix with the mustard and cheese to make the sauce and season with some salt and pepper.
  5. Add the chicken, chives and mushrooms with their juices to the cheese sauce and mix gently.
  6. Spoon the mixture into a pie dish and place a pie funnel in the middle to support the pastry lid.
  7. Roll your pastry out on a lightly floured surface until it’s about 5 cm larger than the circumference of the pie dish.
  8. Cut off a 3cm strip around the edge and press onto the rim of the pie dish lightly brushing with water.
  9. Lift the pastry lid on to and press the edges together to seal.
  10. Trim off the excess pastry (this could be used for decor if you wish) and glaze the lid with the remaining milk.
  11. Cut two slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
  12. Put the pie onto the hot baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden.
  13. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
