Chicken and Mushroom

Chicken and Mushroom is such a classic combination, especially in a pie.

I think the chicken and mushroom combination works, because both chicken and mushroom are not overpowering flavors. Both favors just resonate home cooking to me. Whether it is in a Creamy Chicken and Mushroom One Pan wonder, Chicken Cheesecake or Meraai se pie, it just works everytime. Pot pie, what can I say. These little beauties have saved my dinner so many times already. Top savory mince, fish or creamy chicken and mushroom with this “slap degie” (runny batter), bake it and your dinner has definitely gone up a notch or two.

If I can take the “effort” out of cooking for someone, I have succeeded as a cook. We often try and over complicate meals and there is no need to. Keep it simple, keep it flavorsome, keep it real but most importantly, fill your kitchen with love and you have a winning combination.

I love working with Fairview Full fat yogurt. In these chicken and mushroom pot pies, it lends a creaminess without making the filing too stodgy and heavy. It saves you time too.
