Chicken pasta pie

A chicken pie, yes. Pasta chicken pie? That's new! A lovely combination of chicken pieces with pasta baked to a delicious pie!


For the filling

2 tbsp butter

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 capsicum, finely chopped

½ cup mushroom

1 cup baked corn

2 cups white sauce

½ tsp oregano

Salt, as required

½ cup grated cheese

1 cup chicken cooked and cut in to tiny cubes

1 cup pasta boiled and drained

For the tart shell

270gm maida

Salt, as required

140gm butter


Preheat oven to 180 degrees

Heat butter, sauté large onion slices, capsicum, mushroom and baked corn, and mix well. Switch off the stove

Add white sauce, oregano and salt to it, stir and mix well. Add grated cheese, cooked chicken and pasta, and mix well

Add salt and maida to it and give it a stir

Add small slices of butter to it and gently mix using finger tips

Sprinkle cold water and mix well without applying much pressure when it begins to crumble

Now, to make the tart, split this flour into two and roll out each of the halves

Transfer a rolled piece to a pie dish and even out its edges by pasting firmly on to the baking vessel

Fill it with Bengal gram and bake for ten minutes in an oven

Take it out, remove the Bengal gram, fill it with the prepared filling and cover with the other rolled out piece

Make perforations on the cover, brush with egg white and place in oven again

Bake for around 40 minutes
