Enough short-crust pastry for a 9 double-crust pie 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 small onion, diced cup all-purpose flour 1 cups chicken stock 2 tablespoons dry vermouth Serves 6 Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.

Chicken and Mushroom Pie

6 ounces mushrooms, sliced 1 lb cooked chicken, shredded salt pepper

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat, add the onion and cook until onion is soft, being careful to not let it brown. Stir in the flour and cook a couple of minutes, then add the stock and vermouth, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, for a couple of minutes before adding the mushrooms and turning the heat down to a simmer to cook 5 minutes. Finally, stir in the chicken and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the filling to a pie dish or casserole. Youll need one with at least a 1 -quart capacity to make the entire pie at once. Cover with the pastry that has had a hole cut in the center for escaping steam. Bake 30 minutes or until nicely browned. If the filling and/or pastry have just come from the refrigerator, your pie will probably need an extra five to ten minutes.
