CHICKEN PIE N BUNS

I dont know if this is a “quiche” or a pie because the crust is pizza like…while quiches have much for fat i have made this with not much fat content… The extra dough was made into buns!!! That way you can have both options!!

Its easy to make… but one thing you have to be careful about is the yeast… the water should be warm (if you can put your finger in to test it…the water should be pleasant..) if the water is too warm or not warm enough the yeast wont rise…..
FOR THE DOUGH:
1 envelope of dry active yeast
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1 small cup of warm water
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2-2.5 cups of white flour (as much as the liquid takes in )
Method:
in a big mixing bowl add the yeast, salt and the sugar and mix in the warm water. Leave it to ferment for about 15 minutes…(if it doesnt get frothy means the water isnt the correct temperature and u will ahve to redo this ). Once you see the yeast fermenting add the olive oil and as much white flour one needs to make a dough. Knead the dough well for about 5-7 minutes till its elastic (good workout!!). Cover it and leave it in a wam place to rise. It should rise till double its size….. once thats done knead it again and roll it to fit a oven tray or make into small balls to make buns. For the buns roll the small balls of dough out into a small circle and fill with filling of your choice. If making a pie just spoon the filling over your pastry.
CHICKEN FILLING
1 cup boiled and chopped chicken breast
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup of boiled peas
1 onion chopped
2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil
1 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of white flour
salt and pepper to taste
oregano to taste
METHOD:
in a skillet melt the butter or heat the oil and sautee the chopped onions till transparent. Add the flour and stir for about a minute taking care it does not burn. Then add the milk and cook till thickened. Add the mushrooms, peas and the chicken and season with salt pepper and oregano. Cook till thickened. Cool the mixture thoroughly and then spread it on the dough if you want to make a pie or fill it into the dough to make buns.
Brush the buns with beaten egg or milk and bake in a preheated oven at 200 till done.
