Ingredients
 

  • 12 oz boneless cooked chicken cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 oz margarine or butter
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cooking apple peeled, quartered and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 oz plain flour
  • 1/2 pint chicken stock
  • 4 oz mushrooms sliced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 to matoes skinned and roughly chopped
  • 7 1/2 oz frozen puff pastry defrosted
  • beaten egg to glaze

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
  • Melt the margarine in a large frying-pan, add the onion and fry for 5 minutes until soft and lightly coloured. Add the apple and curry powder and cook gently for another 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and stir until blended. Gradually stir in the stock and simmer, stirring, until thick and smooth.
  • Stir in the chicken pieces and mushrooms and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for a further 5 minutes, then stir in the chopped tomatoes. Pour the mixture into an 850 ml/lV2 pint pie dish.
  • Roll out the pastry on a floured surface to a shape slightly larger than the top of the pie dish. Cut off a strip of pastry all around edge.
  • Brush the rim of the dish with water and press the strip of pastry on the rim. Brush the strip with a little more water, then place the large piece of pastry on top. Press to seal, then knock up and flute.
  • Make decorations with the pastry trimmings, brush the undersides with water and arrange on top of the pie. Brush the pastry all over with the beaten egg and make a small hole in the centre of the pie. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden. Serve at once.
