Ingredients

The crust

  • 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

The filling

  • 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

Instructions

  • The crust
  • 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.
  • The filling
  • 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.
  • Assembling
  • 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.
  • Serve.
