Beti’s Reflections

I was strolling around the grocery store the other day when I came across a recipe for chicken and bacon pie. I had heard of this classic British dish before, but I never knew how simple it would be to make. I quickly grabbed all the ingredients and hurried home to get started!

Preheating the oven, I began by cubing up two boneless, skinless chicken breasts and crisping four slices of bacon in a large skillet on medium heat. Once the bacon was cooked to perfection, I added three tablespoons of butter to the skillet and threw in my 1/2 cup of frozen peas, 1/2 cup of diced carrots, and 1/4 cup of diced onion. Once everything was tender, I added my chicken cubes and let them cook through.

After a few minutes, I added some plain flour to thicken up the mixture and then poured in some chicken stock or broth. I removed the skillet from heat and started working on my pastry crust. I rolled out a sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured surface and filled it with my delicious filling, topping it off with some bacon slices. I sealed it all up with another sheet of puff pastry before baking it off in the oven for 25 minutes until golden brown.

After letting it cool for a bit, I served up my chicken bacon pie and enjoyed a hearty and savory meal that was much simpler to make than I had anticipated. The combination of chicken, bacon, vegetables, and a buttery puff pastry crust made for a truly delicious dish. The flavors balanced each other perfectly, the vegetables cooked to the perfect tenderness, and the pastry was delightfully crisp and golden. We would have liked a bit more sauce in the filling, but overall this recipe was incredibly enjoyable.

If you’re looking for a scrumptious and easy-to-make dinner, this chicken and bacon pie is the perfect solution. With its delightful combination of ingredients and simple preparation, you’re guaranteed to wow your family and friends with this British-inspired dish!
