    About this recipe: This is the best pie recipe I have ever invented, and the best thing is, there's almost no fat because of the butternut pumpkin pie base. One note though is that when rolling the pastry, it is very sticky so make sure to flour the surface and rolling pin well.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 3 

    • For the pie base
    • 1 medium butternut pumpkin
    • 1 egg
    • 2¼ cups (280g) plain flour
    • 1 egg for egg wash glaze if desired
    • For the filling
    • 150g mushrooms
    • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
    • 300g (about ¾ tin) reduced fat condensed cream of mushroom soup
    • 300g water

    Directions
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Peel, cube and boil pumpkin until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, then mash and leave to cool.
    2. Meanwhile, chop the mushrooms and dice the chicken. Cook chicken and mushrooms in a saucepan with no oil (the juice from the mushrooms will stop the chicken from sticking) until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
    3. When cooked, drain the chicken and mushrooms, and add the mushroom soup & water, keeping on the heat so that they mix well - about 2-3 mins.
    4. While waiting for the chicken to cook, add the egg and flour to the mashed cooled squash, mixing to form the pastry.
    5. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees C.
    6. Roll the pastry out on to a well floured surface - it will be very sticky so use lots of flour.
    7. Line the 3 non stick pie tins (or disposable ones which have been greased to prevent sticking) with pastry, pricking the bottom of the tins to prevent the pastry from going soggy.
    8. Spoon filling into the pie and use remaining pastry for the lid. Brush with the egg wash glaze if desired.
    9. Bake in a pre-heated oven on 200 degrees C for 30 minutes or until golden.
