Recipe for today, thankyou Donna Hay!

Cheat Chicken Pie!

So I have made this a few times and everyone loves it!!
My friends have asked for the recipe and some family members so I thought I would pass it on here to you aswell. I know you'll all love it too.


  • 2 cups (320g) coarsely chopped cooked chicken
  • ¾ cup (180g) sour cream ( I use 1- 1.5 cups but I love it extremely creamy!)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 4 x 200g sheets store-bought butter puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Combine the chicken, sour cream, basil, lemon rind, mustard, salt and pepper.
  3. Cut 2 x 15cm x 10cm rectangles from the pastry and place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
  4. Spoon the filling into the centre of the pastry.
  5. Brush just inside the edge of the pastry with the egg.
  6. Cut 2 x 18cm x 12cm rectangles from the remaining pastry and place over the filling.
  7. Gently press the edges together to seal. Brush the tops of the pies with the beaten egg.
  8. Bake the pies for 25–30 minutes or until pastry is puffed and golden.

This should feed 2 people but honestly my partner and I have left overs!
Very generous portions!!
