Chicken and Vegetable Pie with Thyme and Nutmeg

If you are going to make a pie from scratch, you might as well do it properly, which is why we have chosen to share this homemade chicken and vegetable pie recipe made from scratch using a whole chicken, vegetables, and even a homemade pastry crust. This pie takes a while to make but the end flavour is well worth it because it offers such a wonderfully fresh taste. Imagine serving this on a chilly weekend evening with some steaming hot mashed potato on the side and perhaps some corn on the cob or another side dish. Your whole family is going to fall in love with the amazing taste it offers.

We like to use a whole chicken for this because we are using this to make a stock as well as to get the chicken for the filling. Celery, onion, carrot and potatoes feature in this recipe, along with aromatic ingredients such as thyme, bay leaves and nutmeg. The pastry is made in a food processor using flour, lard and butter, and we are brushing beaten egg over the top of the pie crust to give it a nice, glossy shine and golden colour.

Because this pie has meat, vegetables and potatoes in there, you might want to serve it by itself instead of with a side dish or two, but it is also nice with mashed potato. The pie makes its own gravy inside so you do not need to make separate gravy for it. Although this pie takes longer to make than some of our other savoury pie recipes, it is well worth making for a special occasion because the flavour is amazing. Continue reading
