Friday’s quick ideas for the week end #5

Chicken Curried Pie Chicken Pie Well, well. Another Friday arrives. At this time my suggestion is a pie, a chicken pie in fact. But this is not an ordinary chicken pie. I am proud to say that my “invention” works so well. The crust is tender and melted in the mouth and the filling is delightful. The pie is rich and delicate; you can bake it in individual shape if you like and serve as starter. I don’t remember if a mentioned that I bought a new machine in our vacations. Kitchen Tools Never mind, I am very pleased with my new hand mixer, powerful (750W), quick and had a beautiful vintage design. Is ready to use and had a large l litre processing bowl, whisk, frothing spindle and stick blender. I am telling this because I hate make crust pie, it never woks so well for me, mainly when I don’t had much time. This machine made my life easier. In five minutes less my crust was ready into the fridge. After made this dough I never bought industrialized crust anymore I keep some discs in the fridge and I use when necessaries Chicken curry pie .I made only the filling. I had not many ingredients, so I only used,, once more, ingredients that I had in the fridge and pantry, cherry tomatoes, fresh cream, powered curry, onions and chicken breast, of course. I hope that you enjoy the recipe as we enjoyed. Believe me. You don’t regret if you make it Your favorite crust or use this recipe. Butter Crust

Add butter and pulse 6 to 8 times, until mixture resembles coarse meal, Add ice water 1 Tbsp at a time, pulsing until mixture just begins to clump together. If you pinch some of the crumbly dough and it holds together, it's ready. If the dough doesn't hold together, add a little more water and pulse again. Remove dough from machine and place preferment on marble, granite or another cold surface Gently shape in two discs, do not over knead Sprinkle a little flour around the discs. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, and up to 2 days. Tip: Remember if the crust is chill use warm filing. If the crust is warm use chilled filling For the stuffed
