  • 50 grams Butter
  • 50 grams white wine

  • 1 teaspoon Edc vege stock concentrate
  • 100 grams Cheddar cheese

Recipe's preparation

    Flax & Almond Crust
  1. Grind the nuts and seeds for 10 secs./speed 10

  2. Add the butter and mix for 5 secs./speed 5.

  3. Add the water and mix for 5 secs./speed 5.

  4. Press into a baking dish and blind bake at 150'C for 20 minutes. 

  5. Chicken Filling
  6. You need to use cooked chicken as raw will let out too much liquid. You can quickly steam some in the varoma and pop in the fridge or freezer to cool. But, this recipe was developed specifically to tastily use up the chicken picked of the bones from home made stock. I use just wings for my stock, easy cheap and lots of gelatin. They are also easy to pull the meat off. 

  7. Chop your leek in the mixing bowl for 5-7 secs./speed 5. Add the butter and saute 5 mins./Varoma/speed1.5.

  8. Add the wine and saute 5 mins./Varoma/speed1.5.

  9. Add the 100 grams of cheddar (previously grated in Thermomix or simply diced), the mustard and stock as well as seasoning and stir for 5 secs/speed4.

  10. If your chicken is very soft then stir through very gently on speed 2 for as long as it takes to combine. 

  11. Your Pie
  12. Your crust should be blind baked by now, fill it now with your filling. 

  13. If you grated your cheddar then you can sprinkle the extra over, or you can lay sliced cheddar, then top with sliced pear.

  14. Bake at 180'C for 30-40 minutes until bubbling and golden. 

  15. Serve with salad.

Tip

This pie is gorgeous cold the next day. The cheese and chicken set rather firmly and the pear is a lovely contrast. 

 

Originally I came up with this recipe to use up the meat from making chicken stock, now I look forward to it evey time I make a batch of stock. So the meat is not completely tastless I take it off the bones after 8-12 hours of cooking and toss the bones back in to carry on. If using wings for stock only take the meat from the two meatier sections not the tip section which is better left in the stock.

  • Beautiful filling! I don't

    Submitted by cherlyndria77 on 3. October 2016 - 12:35.

    Beautiful filling!

    I don't have any intolerances and so I used the shortcrust pastry recipe from the basic cookbook and then followed the filling instructions.  This pie was an absolute hit in our house, and I'm sure I will make it often.  Thank you for sharing xx

  •   YUM! I had to stop myself

    Submitted by AmyJo on 4. August 2016 - 21:19.

     

    YUM! I had to stop myself eating the filling before putting it in the pie. I made these modifications and it still worked well: 25g apple cider vinegar & 25g water instead of white wine; one cube Massal Chicken-style stock with a tiny bit of hot water to make a paste instead of vegie stock concentrate; 100g of cheese for the top instead of 200g. I used a 23cm round baking dish. Also cranked the oven up to 200 for 15 mins to golden up the cheese. I'd like to try this with nutritional yeast to replace the cheese - if anyone gives it a go please let us know the results! I'm excited to try some variations of this recipe, thanks for sharing.

  • This isn't Paleo. Paleo does

    Submitted by Rach@Kingy on 9. September 2015 - 07:50.

    This isn't Paleo. Paleo does not include DAIRY - so cheese and butter which are in this recipe.

  • I was skeptical that these

    Submitted by Ke1122 on 28. August 2015 - 14:18.

    I was skeptical that these flavours would work, but it tasted delicious! My only adjustment will be to add more pear next time.

  • I was just thinking the same

    Submitted by CAG69 on 13. July 2015 - 19:12.

    I was just thinking the same thing.  Any suggestions for a non dairy substitute for the chedder (nothing soy based)?

    Submitted by 252bella on 25. March 2014 - 07:58.

    Fussy 5yo ate it, so i was over the moon. Whole family really enjoyed this pie. No-one questioned the crust, which i was a bit dubious about myself. Healthy and delicious. Thank you

  • I agree with sharmor. 

    Submitted by LinBek on 24. March 2014 - 11:46.

    I agree with sharmor.  Strictly speaking it is not paleo because of the cheese.  It does sound good though.

  • great recipe. I substituted

    Submitted by Meeka on 19. March 2014 - 17:47.

    great recipe. I substituted an egg for the flaxseeds in the base, and used horseradish cream instead of mustard.  still worked well, and am going to cook it again using mustard and flaxseed/ linseeds

  • This looks delish however

    Submitted by sharmor on 14. March 2014 - 12:45.

    This looks delish however paleo isn non dairy so I'm wondering why it's got the "paleo" in title?  Or is there a non dairy option I'm missing?
