Ingredients

Green curry chicken pie
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 800 gram chicken thigh fillets, trimmed, cut into 3cm cubes
  • 1 medium (170g) red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (75g) green curry paste
  • 2 medium zucchini, halved lengthways, then cut into 2cm lengths
  • 2 tablespoon plain flour
  • 400 millilitre canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 egg, beaten lightly
  • 1 sheet butter puff pastry
  • salad leaves, to serve

Method

Green curry chicken pie
  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced).
  • 2
    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken; cook, stirring, until starting to brown. Add the onion; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the curry paste; cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. This step is important because it cooks the ingredients in the paste and releases all the flavour.
  • 3
    Add the zucchini to pan, then sprinkle the flour over the mixture. Stir for 1 minute or until everything is coated. Pour in the coconut milk, add sugar and fish sauce; bring to a simmer, stirring.
  • 4
    Simmer, uncovered, for about 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and zucchini is tender. Stir in the lime juice. Transfer chicken mixture to a 23cm-24cm pie dish. Cool.
  • 5
    Brush the edge of the pie dish with egg; place puff pastry over top. Trim pastry; use trimmed corners to cover any gaps around edges. Pierce a few holes in the top with a knife to allow steam to escape.
  • 6
    Brush with egg; bake for about 25 minutes or until puffed and golden on top. Serve pie with salad leaves.

Notes

This pie has a definite kick of heat. If you want a milder pie, just reduce the amount of curry paste to 1 or 2 tablespoons. Not suitable to freeze or microwave.
