I do love a good chicken pie. Who wouldn't? I usually make individual ones for everyone. It's something really cute about getting your own little pie+it's great portion control. This recipe with the potatoes on top is great, they become crispy while the filling is soft and creamy. Enjoy.
Serves 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely shopped
4 ounces bacon, cubed
2 chicken breasts, trimmed and chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chicken stock
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 large potatoes, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepan.
  3. Fry onion and bacon until the onion turns soft.
  4. Add the chicken and cook until the chicken has color on all sides.
  5. Add cream and stock and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Transfer mixture into 4 ovenproof dishes and top with sliced potatoes.
  8. Brush with melted butter.
  9. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

TIP:

Give each kid their own little pie.
