I got a little heavy handed on the thyme - fresh herbs would have been better than dried - but otherwise very tasty, and simple to prepare/clean up afterwards.

I add some tabasco sauce just to spice it up a little, and serve it for dinner guests because it's works well prepared the previous day.

Kyra's Review | Rating

Tasty BUT was far too runny, didn't thicken up to be like a pie at all. Seems to have too much liquid or missing flour. Disappointed with my first attempt.

Kelly's Review | Rating

Awesome recipe! Also switched out Celery for Leek, and as I didn't have any thyme, so seasoned the chicken with a bit of garlic salt and Paprika. Was very nice!

what can I add instead of celery or leeks

Reply from The Food in a Minute team

Hi Kate,

You can use chopped red or green capsicum instead of celery or leeks :)

Hope this helps!

Loved it! Tasted much better than anticipated. Added chipotle to spice it up a bit.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was a big hit! Switched the celery for leek, doubled the recipe but only used a cup of stock. To make it even faster I used smoked chicken and precooked the pom poms.

This was really good. I substituted leek for celery and added in carrot and mushrooms. Will definitely be making this again. Would also be good as something you canp prepare the night before, then add the pom poms and bake after work.
