Servings: 4 servings
- 2 tbsp vegetable shortening
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1.5 tbsp unsalted butter
- 7 tsp water ice-cold
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 1.5 medium eggs
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1.5 oz onion
- 1 tbsp garlic
- 1 tbsp parsley
- 3 oz white mushrooms
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 10 oz skinless boneless chicken thigh
- 1 tbsp heavy cream
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 10 oz potato
Sift flour, salt and baking powder. Add chilled butter and shortening, and slowly mix them in using a fork.
Add ice-cold water to the mix and use the fork to mix it thoroughly until a dough is formed.
Turn it out on to a work surface. Use the palm of your hand to shape it into a disk. Wrap it in plastic wrap, place it in the fridge, and leave for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
In a heated pot, stir onion and garlic with olive oil for 1 minute.
Add chicken and cook for 2 minutes. While it's cooking, mix the eggs, milk, cream and half of the salt in a bowl.
Add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Then add mushrooms, the rest of the salt, pepper, and thyme. Stir well and let cook covered for another 5 minutes.
When it's time to bake, unwrap the dough, and roll it out into a flat pie crust. It can stick to your rolling pin, so be sure to flour your work surface and the rolling pin.
Using your rolling pin, carefully lift it up and lay it slowly onto a round baking dish. Ours is 1.5 inches deep, and has a diameter of 7 inches.
Scoop the cooked filling onto the dough. Slowly pour the egg-milk mixture on the filling and swirl it around using a spatula.
Bake at 375°F for 30 minutes or until the top is golden. Check every once in a while.
