Meal Inspiration Monday – Chicken, Leek and Brie Pie

A pie is something which I have been fancying for a long time. I wanted to make something a little bit different to the ones which you can pick up in the stores. I was browsing on pinterest and I found one which was Chicken, Leek and Brie. Brie is something which I love and rarely cook with I do not think I have done since we moved. This is a meal which we loved actually and we can not wait to make again. I know this is properly not going to happen until the autumn/ winter months. It is an amazing comfortable food which I is something which you sometime need. For sure this is for sure something which we will make again in the future. It was pretty easy to make as well.

Ingredient – Serves 4

2 Large squares of puff pastry

25g Butter

1 Leek thinly sliced

3 Crushed garlic cloves

400g Chicken diced into 1 inch cubes

125ml White Wine

125ml Chicken Stock

2 Tablespoons Cornflour

60ml Cold Water

100g Brie thinly sliced

60g Parsley Chopped

1 Egg lightly beaten

Salt and Pepper

Method

  1. In a medium sized saucepan over a medium heat, melt the butter and cook down the garlic and leek until soft. Add chicken and cook through.
  2. Add the wine and Chicken Stock and cook for a further 5 Minutes. Season with Salt and Pepper.
  3. In a small bowl mix together the cornflour and water to create a paste. Add this to the chicken mixture along with the chopped parsley.
  4. Mix through the whole mixture and remove from the heat.
  5. Take the first sheet of the puff pastry.  Leave a 1 ½ inch border around all sides make about 8 evenly spaced slits along the width of the pastry sheet.
  6. Place the second sheet on the baking tray and spoon the chicken mixture into the center. Spread the mixture out, leaving a 1 ½ inch border.
  7. Place the slices of brie on top. With a pastry brush (or your finger), brush some of the beaten egg around this border.
  8. Put the first sheet on top of the second, press down the border with your fingers and brush the egg over the top of the pie.
  9. Cook for 20 minutes on 200c until the Chicken, Leek and Brie Pie is golden brown. Wait 5 minutes for it too cool otherwise you may burn your mouth.

I am so glad that I made the Chicken, Leek and Brie pie. For sure this is a new comfort food which I can not wait t make again in the future. It only took around 40 minutes to make. I know this is going to be one which Joe is going to demand we make again. It was so simple as well.
