  • About

This is a pie which eats as well at room temperature as it does hot from the oven. The onion sauce in which the pieces of poached chicken are smothered is made golden with saffron and fragrant with nutmeg. Tiny shreds of hot red chilli give the pie a tingling spiciness without making it at all fierce. While filo pastry is used here, good quality glazed puff pastry also works very well as a pie crust.
