Chicken Pie Braid πŸ—πŸ—πŸ”πŸ”

10 months ago

Ingredients
1 roll of puff pie pastry defrosted but cold as it makes working with it easier
1 cup cooked chicken
1 cup frozen peas and carrots (I added half a cup of frozen corn as well)
1/2 cup cream of chicken condensed soup but I've also used cream for mushrooms before
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese (I've used more cheese on occasion)
Optional: if you wish to add mushrooms be careful as mushrooms seems to have a lot of juices when cooking. Rather precook the mushrooms and use them then.
I have also added green/red/yellow peppers.

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 375F/180Β°C.

In a large bowl, combine your frozen veggies, cheddar cheese, and chicken.
In a separate bowl mix together the cream cheese and the condensed soup and then add it to the chicken-veggie mixture.
Spread the puff pastry out on wax/parchment paper and place that on a baking pan.

The pie mixture may seem dry to you but DON'T be tempted to add anything as this mixture becomes more runny while cooking.

Leaving 71/2 cm or 3 inches in the middle, make cuts down the side of the dough 21/2 cm or an inch apart on both sides.

Spread/pile your pie mixture down the middle of the dough. Take a strip of dough from one side and fold it over the middle mixture. Then take a strip from the other side and fold it over the middle. Continue doing this down the pastry, alternating sides until it is completely folded over.
Pinch the ends of the dough to keep the filling inside while it bakes.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes so that the top is nice and golden brown.

I served this meal up with roast potatoes and salad.

Let it stand about 10 minutes before cutting in to it.

That looks really good (except the chicken part). I used to run the killing room at a chicken plant years ago and I don't eat a lot of chicken except for fried that's covered with batter. When I was in San Francisco in my hippie days I used to go to a Russian bodega and get something similar only with beef... puff pastry with beef onions, potatoes and spices. YUM

Well you just sparked a thought! I think I shall try this with a beef and brown onion filling next time!

I believe I also would have been put off of eating chicken as you were blegh. That's one of the reasons I don't want to get chickens here on our farm. Once I start naming them ugh! And sadly it's inevitable. Much to my husband's utter frustration at me!

When I was a kid I lived with my uncle on a farm. The farmer let me work for some extra money... he had a pig that followed me around like a dog and then "the day" came. I was crushed!
