KBB#17 Savoury Bake - Chicken and Mushroom Pie


I missed KBB in March with their chiffon cake theme, I was little dissapointed of course since I like chiffon cake and were curious about what’s the rest of the member were going to make etc. But nevertheless I missed it because one reason that I couldn’t  avoid.

So this month I’m back with this pie, in the “love letter” it said we could use any kinds of pie recipe as long as it was savoury pie with lattice. I googled here and there for a pie recipe that we could also eat for dinner and not to mention easy to make. Other good thing was that we could use shop bought puff pastry. What a relief, since the house is a mess now with moving (yes we are going to move), boxes everywhere, I couldn’t  bear my mind to makehomemade puff pastry, tough I never made it before and really would like to try. But better this way than no pie at all right?


All in all this pie was easy to make, was very tasty. And believe me lattice was not as difficult as I thought it would be. So you should try making one too.
