Jamie Oliver Chicken Pie Recipe

Jamie Oliver’s Chicken Pie Recipe is similar to pot pie, but it’s packed with flavorful ingredients like buttery mushrooms, chicken, bacon, and cheese, all wrapped in flaky puff pastry and ready in less than an hour.

I love chicken pot pies, but sometimes I want to change the ingredients. So, peas out, mushrooms in… sincere? It’s better. It has the savoriness of mushroom soup with the chewiness of crust (puff pastry crust this time! ), tender chicken, salty bacon, garlic, and cheddar.

Jamie Oliver Chicken Pie Ingredients

  • Mushrooms — If you taste it without mushrooms, you’ll never know what you’re missing. Don’t write off this dish just yet. Hand-picking is an option if you have a friend who really enjoys mushrooms. Try it out, because even my mushroom-averse husband likes it.
  • Bacon — No matter how much bacon you already have, there is always room for more. Its excellent flavor and adaptability make it an indispensable component. Make sure to use it frequently. Indeed, it’s a great improvement over the previous situation!
  • Puff pastry — The use of frozen puff pastry will further streamline the cooking process. Make a fantastic pie crust by taking it out of the freezer just a few minutes before you need it.
  • Homemade cream of chicken soup — Homemade cream of chicken soup is ridiculously easy to prepare. Throw out the canned goods, because after trying this, you won’t know what you were missing.

Is A Mushroom A Carb Or A Protein?

Mushrooms have zero fat and very few carbohydrates. They contain a small amount of protein. Depending on the species, mushrooms contain a wide variety of carbohydrates.

How To Make Jamie Oliver Chicken Pie?

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 9-inch round pie dish. Place one sheet of puff pastry in a greased pie dish. Place aside.
  • Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat to make the homemade cream of chicken. For 1 minute, stir in the flour. Whisk in the broth and milk gradually. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Remove from heat once thickened and smooth.
  • Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet. Stir in the mushrooms and garlic for 2-3 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant and the mushrooms begin to brown.
  • After 1 minute, stir in the chicken and bacon, followed by the cream of chicken and cheddar cheese.
  • Fill your pie dish halfway with the mushroom and chicken mixture. Cover with the remaining puff pastry sheet (it doesn’t have to cover the entire edge of the pie dish; just line up the corners with the corners of the bottom puff pastry sheet).
  • Brush the top crust with the whisked egg.
  • Bake for 25 minutes on the bottom rack, or until the crust is puffed and golden brown. Allow cooling slightly before serving.

What To Serve With Chicken Pot Pie?

Because pot pies are so hearty and full of protein, we love to serve this as a main course paired with Mashed Potatoes, soft Dinner Rolls, and simple vegetable sides:

Ideas For Customizing This Recipe

Substitute a hard, smoky cheese like gruyere, swiss, or even smoked Gouda for the cheddar.
Craving some fresh vegetables, but can’t wait until dinner? Blend them in with the garlic and mushrooms.
Feeling rushed? It’s fine to use the cream of chicken soup from a can. I promise I won’t tell!
Alternatively, you could use cream of mushroom soup to really amp up the mushroom flavor.
Improve the taste of this chicken mushroom pie by adding some fresh herbs, such as rosemary, thyme, basil, or an Italian spice blend.

Is It Possible To Use Shortcrust Pastry For This Pie?

Yes. Here I’ve topped it with puff pastry, but shortcrust pastry would work just as well. This pie will be crunchier than any Puff Pastry pie. You can also line the dish’s base with shortcrust pastry before adding the filling. (For some, this is the only acceptable method of producing a genuine pie.)

The best way to bake a pie with a base is to heat a baking tray in the oven before adding the pie dish. In my experience, this is an excellent method for preventing a soggy bottom in chicken pies.

Recipe Tips

  • If you don’t want to eat bacon made from pork, you can eat turkey bacon instead. The same holds true if you want neither. If you don’t have butter on hand, bacon drippings make a fine substitute for sauteing the mushrooms and garlic.
  • Get creative with the cheese! Although any type of cheddar will do, medium or sharp is my personal preference.
  • Avoid sticky cleanup by greasing the pie pan before placing the first puff pastry crust.
  • With proper storage (covered or in an airtight container), this chicken and mushroom pie will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat it in the microwave or on the stovetop, one slice at a time, until it’s hot throughout.
