Puff pastry acts as the base for this filling savory pie. Tender chicken is paired with mushrooms, parsley, garlic, and shallots which all add their unique and bold flavors to this pie. An egg custard binds all of these ingredients together to create a dish that is equally delicious at brunch as it is paired with a salad for lunch or dinner. Breadcrumbs on the base of the dough prevent sogginess, an easy trick you can use again and again.
- 2 chicken thighs
- 2 cups dried mushrooms (trumpets, chanterelles, or porcini mushrooms)
- 400 grams mushrooms (fresh Paris)
- olive oil
- 1 bunch parsley (chopped)
- 1 garlic clove (minced)
- 1 shallot (minced)
- 1 jar cream (thick)
- 2 puff pastry sheets
- 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs
- ground black pepper
- 1 egg yolk
- Cook the chicken thighs in a pan. Cool and remove the skin. Remove the meat from the bone, and cut it into pieces. Set aside.
- Rehydrate the dried mushrooms in a bowl of warm water.
- Clean the Paris mushrooms and cut them in quarters. Saute in a pan over high heat with a drizzle of olive oil until released mushroom liquid evaporates. Add parsley, garlic, shallot, and cream. Stir and cook on low heat for about one minute.
- Drain and chop the rehydrated mushrooms. Add them to the pan and cook for another minute.
- Remove from heat and add the chicken and two whole whisked eggs.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Spread a circle of dough in a pie pan. Sprinkle the crumbs on top of the dough.
- Pour the mushroom mixture over the dough, then cover with a second circle of puff pastry. Seal the edges well. Make a small hole in the center of the pie to let steam out. Brush the top with egg yolk diluted in a little water. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
