Chicken, pumpkin and sage pies

all details

It's hard to beat the smell of a freshly baked pie coming out of the oven on a chilly evening. Individual pie dishes are handy to have on hand in the kitchen and are available from cooking stores but any tart shell will do the job. Be sure to grease well if shells are not non-stick

Ingredients

  • 400g pumpkin, peeled and chopped into 2cm pieces
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 50g butter
  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 50g plain flour
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 1 roasted chicken
  • 1/2 cup chopped sage leaves
  • 4-5 sheets puff pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Method

Preheat oven to 180C. Place pumpkin on a baking tray and drizzle with a little olive oil. Season and bake until cooked through and starting to colour, about 15 minutes.

Melt butter in a saucepan and add onion. Cook until onion is soft, about 10 minutes. Add flour and cook gently for 10 minutes. Gradually add stock, stirring to make a smooth sauce. Bring to the boil for one minute.

Remove flesh from chicken, discarding skin, and cut into two-centimetre pieces. Place in a bowl with the pumpkin and sage. Season and stir through sauce.

Cut four 14-centimetre circles out of puff pastry and line four 11-centimetre diameter, greased pie dishes. Fill with chicken mixture. Cut four 12-centimetre circles from remaining pastry and pierce all over with a fork. Cover pies with pastry, crimp edges together and tuck into sides. Brush tops with egg wash. Bake for 45 minutes or until puffed, golden and cooked through.

Serve with salad leaves or green beans.

Individual pie dishes are sold at cooking stores but any tart shell will work. We used a fluted shell, which gives a nice effect. If shells are not non-stick, be sure to grease them well.

    This pie is brilliant! Easy to make, tastes delicious and can be frozen until needed. Heat the pies in the dishes for 30 minutes or so, then remove from the dishes and cook for a further 10 minutes - the pastry will crisp up nicely. I served them with a bowl of mashed potatoes and steamed fresh peas. Yummy!
