Bacon Chicken Pie

Bacon Chicken Pie
  • Sumo

This recipe came about because this was all I had in my fridge. Slim pickings that I had to put together to make a meal or I had to go shopping. I’ll do anything to avoid going shopping if I can. So…I had some chicken, a few pieces of bacon, a few mushrooms and only one sweet potato.

Dinner!

This is what I came up with and it was easy and tasty. Next time, I would add some diced up sweet potato to the chicken and bacon mixture to thicken it up, and I would probably add more sweet potato slices on top since they shrink. You could easily adapt this and combine anything you want. I served this with a side of Swiss chard sauteed in white balsamic vinegar and garlic.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons oil (olive, coconut or ghee)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 sliced of bacon, diced
  • 2 chicken breasts, chopped
  • 5 medium sized mushrooms, chopped
  • 4 fresh sage leaves, diced (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup white wine (or sub bone or chicken broth)
  • 1 cup whole fat cream or coconut milk
  • 1 sweet potato, sliced thin

What to do

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium high heat.
  2. Add the onions and garlic and cook until translucent.

  5. Add the sage, salt and pepper, white wine and cream (here is where you could add some diced up sweet potato if you wanted).
  6. Cook until bubbly and starting to thicken.

  7. Meanwhile, slice a sweet potato very thin with a mandolin. I did not peel the potato, but the choice is yours.

Notes

If you double the chicken and bacon etc...you won't need to double the wine and cream (just add in a little extra).
