Hey guys! I've made this recipe about 8 times now and it's fucking delicious. Dahlia originally made it for me and wrote out the recipe and I've made it for many people since.
Whole Roast Chicken (I usually buy mine from Red Rooster because they're my fave, but you can cook your own)
1 large Lemon
1 cup of Sauvignon Blanc
250ml Double Cream
4 Puff Pastry sheets
250g Frozen Peas
1 1/2 Tbs Thyme Leaves
2 cloves of Garlic, crushed
5 large Spring Onions
Olive oil (splash)
1. Strip the meat off the chicken and place in a large bowl
2. Chop spring onion finely and add to the bowl
3. Place peas in a bowl and cover with boiling water until refreshed. Drain water and slightly crush the peas and then add to the bowl of chicken.
4. Add the zest of the lemon, along with a small amount of the juice to the chicken bowl, as well as a pinch of the thyme.
5. Season the chicken bowl with salt and pepper
6. Thoroughly mix the chicken bowl and then place the mixture on top of 2 sheets of defrosted puff pastry on a flat baking tray. Smush mixture into a mound on top of the pastry so it is compact.
7. Place remaining 2 sheets on top of mixture, then fold the edges up so the pie is sealed. It should look a little like a crown.
8. Cut a 1 inch hole in diameter in the top of the pastry with a sharp knife, then brush a beaten egg over the top of the pie.
9. Bake for 25 mins, or until golden.
10. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and the thyme leaves until fragrant. Add the cup of wine and reduce by half.
11. Add double cream and summer until slightly thickened.
12. Drink champagne
13. Remove pie from the oven and spoon the sauce into the hole at the top.
14. Leave for 2 minutes to let the sauce soak in, then serve.
It's supposed to serve 6, but never really does due to people eating seconds

Well, eating with your ass was starting to get a bit weird after all.
