Left Over Pie

So, you over cooked last night and now you are wondering what to do with all the left over food. Here is my solution and it works all the time. I simply make a pie – aptly called “Left Over Pie”. It's a huge cheat but who cares – it tastes good!!

In my case, the left overs comprise, chicken breasts, peas, carrots and mashed potato. Here are the extra ingredients:

2 ready rolled puff pastries
1 can chicken soup (best quality that you can afford)
1 egg for brushing the pastry
Sesame seeds or grated Parmesan(optional)

Unroll the pastries and smooth out lightly with a rolling pin. In a large mixing bowl add the left overs – chicken, vegetables and mash. Add the soup into the mixture to create the sludgy (most unappetizing!) pie filling. Divide the filling into the pastries and close. Turn the pies into a non-stick baking tray and brush with egg. Sprinkle sesame seeds or parmesan and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes until the pastry is golden and crispy.

Serve with a fresh salad – your guests will think you slaved all day making pie! Hush, its our secret.
