Chicken Pie

Sometimes I get mail, asking me whether I’m into pickles and condiments business. It seems there is a brand called Maria’s pickles! Well, it’s not mine. I’m not into any commercial ventures…yet. Ohh yes, there is always a possibility of starting something in the future. There is no harm in dreaming about things, right? If wishes were horses…

Ok, so my dream is… I dont know whether I told you this before, anyways… my dream is to start a bakery and coffee shop sometime. That reminds me of another one of my dreams..it was my dream to start a boutique for Salwars. There is a slight problem though.. I dont think I’ll be able to sell any pieces, because I’d love to keep all those Salwars for myself ;) Anyways, coming back to bakery… I love bakery, because it’s always filled with so much of positive energy and life.

Tell me, why do you go to bakery usually? Ok, the reasons that usually take me to a bakery are

: if I want to just hang out with my friends and relax

: If I want to celebrate any special occasion

: to get some goodies if I’m visiting friends

etc etc…

Did you notice anything common in the above reasons? It’s all kind of happy situation.People usually go to bakery when they are happy, right? and I want to be a part of their happiness :) In short my bakery/coffees shop should be something like Central Perk in Friends. I better stop describing my bakery… Even otherwise, Jose always complains that I live in my own La La Land. If I go on with the bakery description, you might wanna support him, so…

Talking about the menu in the bakery, I’d love to keep it pretty basic. I love to serve food which people can relate to. I dont want anything fancy schmancy, I want simple and tasty food. I want to have the kind of food that welcomes you and comforts you and not the type that intimidates you. So if and when I start a bakery, this will be one of the items in the menu! It’s a kind of dish that makes you happy and content!

It’s a simple pie, you can either have it as a main dish along with some salad or as a starter. It’s a good choice for brunch too…

Please dont get scared seeing the length of the recipe. I assure you, it’s a simple one.

  • ah! there comes another favorite! :) its a chicken pie and its your recipe… appo try cheyyathe pattillallo!
    Another thing which i thought of telling u is that I ve a problem with plain flour… My husband n I are complete foodies and we absolutely dont ve any control on the ‘quantity’ we eat.. :D so I always try to get the ingredients healthy wherever possible… So when I see maida, i always use atleast 50% whole wheat flour…. and in most cases it works fine, except for some cake recipes (if other liquid adjustments go wrong).
    So the pie also i’ll be trying the same way… I’ll surely let u know how it turns out to be… thanks… :)

    • Indu dear… did you get to try this recipe? I’m eagerly waiting to know how the wheat version worked out? Even I’m not a big fan of maida, so I’ll be happy to try your version.

      Cheers
      Maria

      • Hi Maria… A big hug to u first of all…. :) the pie was fantastic even though i didnt have the italian seasoning and celery… the best part is the simplicity… i hardly took any time to make it! Thanks to u :)

        I used almost 3/4 cup wheat flour and the rest maida…. Worked just fine, nobody even guessed…

        Take care,

    • Hi Neelam,

      Thank you :)

      I’m based in Bahrain dear, so the chances of me conducting a baking class in Hyderabad is very rare. I’m sure there will be somebody local who is taking classes. Hope you find it soon :)

  • Such an amazing recipe!!! It came out too good, exactly as it looks in ur images!!! My huby loved it!!! All thanks to u :)

  • Hi Maria…this is a really easy and yummy recipe here. I tried it on a 9″ pie dish. However, the top didn’t come out well. It was a little soggy. I did a lattice top. I don’t know what I did wrong.

    • Hi Mariam,

      Thanks for trying this. I guess the top portion wasnt done because it wasnt cooked completely. If you are making it in one dish, you may need to increase the baking time accordingly.

      Also I use the top and bottom baking option while baking.

      Hope it comes out well next time.

  • Hey Maria!! i made this for saturday night dinner! :D Usually my hubby doesn’t like if i cook something that’s not spicy/hot… but he loved this dish! m so happy! thx for sharing :)

  • Hi Maria,

    Made this today..and as usual..it turned out well..I think there is a minimum guarantee that ur recipe’s offer…thanks a lot dear for these wonderful recipes…:) :) :)
    More than anything I loooooved the filling..I made a slight change..I cooked the chicken pieces with salt pepper and soya sauce in a pressure cooker…and the stock that remained, that I added to the filling…the filling was too good..I think its a multi purpose filling..u kno what all I did with it…first of all…I ate the filling so much like its a snack..heheh..tats before adding the white sauce ok..then some of the filling(before adding the white sauce) I mixed it with mayonnaise and made sandwich… then after adding the white sauce I took some of it and mixed it with cooked pasta…and then finally with the remaining filling I made the pie..The filling was the Hero I say :)..so thanks a lot once again dear…TC and keep posting more delicious recipes :)

    • Resh dear…

      how are you? so you got all adventurous with the filling eh ;)?

      Yeah you can use the filling for different things, to make sandwiches, chapathi rolls etc;

      Anyways, I’m so so happy that you keep trying the recipes from here and without fail write to me to share the results :)

      Hope your family is doing good, please do convey my regards to them.

      Take care,
      Maria

      • Thanks Dear..Will sure convey your regards…we all are doing great…looking forward for some special recipes from you with easter around the corner…take care Maria nd keep posting :)

  • Again a SUPER BUMPER HITTT!!!! Even I couldn’t stop praising myself..hehe. The best part is that I got ‘THE BEST’ compliment from my mother ( She happens to be my food critic and usually we end up in a world war !!!!)
    So A BIGGGGG THANKS AGAIN Maria…
    Definitely gonna try more n more recipes from MariasMenu!!!

  • I tried the recipe. The filling was good. But the crust came very delicate. I did not add egg.Is it because of that? Also I baked entire thing at 200 degree Celsius instead of baking it separate.

  • hai
    This looks??
    can I make these pies ahead of time ?? i mean even with the filling inside to be eaten later ?? will the pie become soggy ?
