Chicken Satay in a pie, delicious!
Ingredients (serves 8 | makes 2 pies, and 8 slices)
- 500g chicken mince
- 1/2 brown onion, diced
- 1 x carrot, grated
- 100g frozen peas
- 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp thai red curry paste
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 400ml coconut cream
- 4 x sheets of gluten-free puff pastry (or regular, if you don't have allergies)
- 1 tsp non-wheaten cornflour (or regular cornflour, if you don't have allergies)
- 1 x egg, beaten, for glazing
- 1 x oil for cooking
- Preheat your oven to 200 C, and prepare two pie tins with the bottom sheets of puff pastry. (NOTE: If only cooking one pie at a time, then hold off on filling and preparing the second pie until the last-minute, so as not to get the pastry soggy.)
- Brown the onion in a pan, then add the chicken and cook completely. Add in the peanut butter, the curry paste and brown sugar and stir until the peanut butter has softened.
- Add in the carrot, the peas and the coconut cream, as well as the cornflour and continue to cook while stirring gently, being mindful not to mash the peas. It helps to either sift the cornflour or to sprinkle it over the top of the mixture to avoid lumps.
- Allow the mixture to thicken and reduce until satisfied, then pour into the prepared tins and smooth out. Top this with the extra pieces of puff pastry, remembering to prick holes with a fork. Press the pastry down either using a pastry tool or the fork, and brush the tops of both pies with the beaten egg.
- Place into the oven and cook for 25 minutes, or until the pastry is sufficiently browned all over and has puffed up and become crispy. Serve.
You can use pieces of chicken if you want, but mince tends to soak up the flavour much better. This recipe is also on my blog: ineedafeed.wordpress.com
