    • 1 Onion Diced

    • 75ml Cream

    • 2 tbs TruffleHunter Black Truffle Oil
    • 200g Puff Pastry

Method

Step 1:  Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottomed saucepan, over a medium heat. Slice the chicken into 3cm pieces, seasoning generously with sea salt and fry each side until golden brown.

Step 2:  Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and add the mushrooms and lardons to the saucepan, frying until they have changed colour. Remove and set aside with the chicken.

Step 3:  Over a lower heat, melt the butter and stir in the flour to make a roux. Allow to cook for a few minutes, whisking continuously and gradually add the stock, followed by the cream.

Step 4:  Return the chicken, mushrooms and lardons to the pan, stirring into the creamy sauce. Add the TruffleHunter Black Truffle Oil and finally the kale, stirring and allowing to cook for 2 – 3 minutes. Check the seasoning, adjust accordingly

Step 5:  Heat the oven to 220C. On a floured surface, roll the pastry out thinly and cover the pie, tucking the sides into the dish. With a pastry brush, coat the surface with the beaten egg. Bake for 30 minutes, until the pastry is crispy and golden.
