How to Make Chicken Pot Pie

To start our chicken pie we have two options: use the raw chicken or take advantage of the cooked chicken left over from another dish. In the first case, we need about 400 g of skinless chicken breast, which we cut into cubes and season with salt and pepper. In the second case, since it is already cooked, we will need a little less, about 300 g, which we will simply crush.

Now we deal with all the vegetables. First peel and cut 1 carrot. Next, take 1 medium red pepper, wash it, dry it, remove the stem and seeds and cut it. We also need 1 onion, which we peel and chop. We will also put the green part of 1 or 2 Chinese onions that we cut into thin slices. Finally, about 3 or 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced.

We will make a sauce with these vegetables. To do this, heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and, when hot, add the carrot, pepper and onion. Fry and let cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, until the vegetables are very soft. You have to stir them often so they don’t burn.

On the other hand, we will take a large bowl and break 4 eggs into it. We beat it as if it were for an omelette and added 100 g of grated cheese. Adjust it with a little salt, not too much because the cheese is usually quite salty and pepper to taste.
