Today’s dinner was chicken/broccoli pie…
(Of course you can make it dairy free and choose whatever filling you wish!)
Who doesn't love a good pie?
What you need:
- 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
- butter, clarified butter, or ghee (for frying)
- 1.5 cups (3.5 dl) almond meal
- 3 eggs
- 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or walnut oil
- 0.2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 onion
- a fewsundried tomatoes
- 1 head of broccoli
- 1 cup (2.5 dl) grated flavorful hard cheese
- 3 eggs
- 1.25 cups (3 dl) full fat cream
- 0.5 teaspoon salt
What to do:
| 1||Pre-heat the oven to about 350F (180C).|
| 2||Add all ingredients for the crust into a bowl and mix them until it’s a very thick paste/dough.|
| 3||Form the dough into a ball and place in the middle of a greased pie pan, and then press it out until it covers the bottom and edges.|
| 4||Using a fork, make a few holes in the dough.|
| 5||Place in the oven and pre-bake for 20 minutes.|
(I suggest to make the fillings while the crust is pre-baking...)
Images of step 2-5:
| 7||Increase the temperature to about 390F (200C).|
| 8||Cut the chicken and sun dried tomatoes into small pieces, and slice the onion.|
| 9||Fry it in butter/clarified butter/ghee with a bit of salt and pepper until it has got a nice color.|
| 10||In a bowl, beat the eggs, cream, salt and black pepper.|
| The pie|
| 11||Spread the chicken/tomato/onion mix and the grated cheese evenly over the pre-baked crust.|
| 12||Pour over the egg/cream mixture and make sure it fills up every little cavity to bind it all together, and then place pieces of broccoli on top.|
| 13||Put the pie back in the oven and bake for another 30-40 minutes (it should have a really nice color by then).|
Images of step 11-13:
| 15||Let cool for a while before serving, and serve with a crispy, fresh, salad on the side.|
In the comments I've said that I originally thought the crust was a bit too thick, and that I would use half the amount of the ingredients for the future.
I have updated the recipe to only state half the amount of what I first used, so there's no need to cut it again.
– Bon Apetit!
