Chicken, ham & Asparagus pie
See the lovely green color of those peas?? 🙂 I used frozen ones this time! Will not make the mistake of using canned peas (as here) again!
Today was a national holiday so we kind of spend the day cooking. Let me be more specific; I have been cooking (and baking) and Tom was busy (spring)cleaning the shed. After all that baking (to keep the suspense, check my blog on the 27th of May) I wanted to eat something quick and easy, so while going through some Good Food magazines I found the below recipe. And it was totally delicious!! I will definitely be making this again soon. It took about 10 minutes to make, 5 under the grill and voila. Ready!
The photos are quick snaps; didn’t feel like anything elaborate… 🙂
CHICKEN, HAM & ASPARAGUS PIE (serves 4)
Brush 4 skinless chicken breasts with a little butter and grill, turning once, untill just cooked. Slice into chinks and tip into a shallow dish. Blanch 100 gr asparagus a
nd 100 gr peas untill just tender, then drain and scatter over the chicken with 100 gr ham, torn into pieces. Mix 100 ml creme fraiche with 1 tablespoon grainy mustard and dollop over the top, then scatter with 50 g breadcrumbs.
Dot with a little more butter and grill for 5 minutes untill golden and heated through. I also added a bit of freshly grated parmezan to the top.
