Method

FILLING

  • In large deep pot, add oil and fry grated garlic, chicken, onions and mushrooms until slightly browned.
  • Transfer to a large casserole dish.
  • Add frozen peas to the casserole dish.
  • In another pot – steam or boil broccoli florets until just cooked al dente and then transfer the cooked broccoli to the large casserole dish.

CHEESE SAUCE

  • There is no need to wash the chicken pot. Use this same pot to make the cheese sauce.
  • Melt the butter, add the flour and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add milk slowly, a little bit at a time, until all milk is incorporated.
  • Remember to whisk the milk continuously and continue to add all the milk until you have a white, smooth sauce.
  • Once the sauce has begun to thicken, take it off the heat, and add mayonnaise, salt, pepper and cheese. Mix well until cheese is completely incorporated into the white sauce.
  • The sauce must not be too thick, as it will continue to thicken in the oven.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken. (You really want lots of sauce.)

PIE TOPPING

  • Sift flour, salt and baking powder into large bowl.
  • Mix egg, oil and milk together
  • Add egg mixture to flour.
  • Mix until smooth, should resemble dumpling type mixture.
  • Pour over the chicken and cheese sauce.
  • Bake in 180 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Serve warm with a fresh green salad.
