- First pre-heat oven to 180˚C.
- Next place 2 tablespoons olive oil into a large fry pan over a medium to high heat. Add onions and a pinch of salt, cook for 4 minutes until soft and translucent. Add mushrooms and cook for a further 3 minutes. Turn heat up to high, add chicken and cook until the meat is sealed and no longer pink, around 3-4 minutes.
- Sprinkle sifted flour over the chicken and stir until well coated. Quickly add Latasha’s Kitchen Green Coriander Sauce, stock and cream and bring to the boil for 2 minutes until the mixture thickens. Add peanut paste, season lightly and set aside to cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, butter and line a 20 cm pie dish. Place two sheets puff pastry into the dish and cut where it overhangs and make sure all sides are covered with your pastry. Blind bake for 10 minutes then cool for a a couple of minutes.
- Place chicken mixture into the pastry shell. Top with a sheet of puff pastry and seal around the edges of the dish. Make a few holes in the pastry lid and lightly brush with milk. Cook pie for 35-40 minutes or until cooked and golden.
