Low energy weeks call for low energy meals and this is one of my favorites. Quick chicken pie is a great way to use up leftovers, quick to throw together, kid friendly and can be a meal in one.
Quick chicken pie
Pre-made savoury short pastry (mine was even pre-rolled which made it super fast.)
approx 2C shredded cooked chicken
250g tub sour cream
2 Tablespoon wholegrain mustard
1 teaspoon dried herbs (thyme, sage or tarragon are all delicious)
1 C cooked veges - carrots, pumpkin, kumara, beans, anything you have really.
1/2 onion, chopped finely
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 180C
Grease a pie dish and line it with the pastry.
In a bowl mix together all remaining ingredients.
Pour into pastry lined dish.
Top with pastry as desired, i usually do but ran out of pastry that night.
Heat in oven until pastry is cooked - about 25-30mins.
Eat on it's on or with a fresh salad.
It's also a nice comforting meal for when the weather is a bit cold and you need a bit of nourishing.
I hope you'll give this one a go i'm sure it will become a firm family favorite.
