Rustic chicken and mushroom pie


Rustic chicken and mushroom pie
This homely looking pie gets back to what good, old-fashioned pies are all about: it's round, deep and has both a proper bottom and lid.

The one small concession to modernity is the use of puff pastry for a lighter, crisper crust.

The filling combines mushrooms, leeks and diced chicken in a cream sauce.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
