Chicken, Fennel and Sage Pie

Hello hello!

Here is a perfect evening meal recipe. A nice pie (or quiche), that will change from your usual and that is rather healthy.

Let me introduce the chicken, fennel and sage pie.

I wanted to give fennel for dinner to my childern but they don’t want it so much… So I decided to be smart!! 😉

And it worked!! Not that they didn’t see the fennel in the pie… But they loved it!!

The grilled chicken gives a very yummy taste, and a bit of proteins by the way, and the sage adds a delicious subtle flavor. Huge success!!

I made my express savory shortcrust pastry to make this quiche. 3-4 minutes only are needed to prepare it, and a few more to rest in your fridge (I had no more than 30 minutes ahead of me and it was enough!).

This pie can be served as a starter, as a main dish with a nice lettuce for instance or as an appetizer if you have leftovers. I cut them in small pieces, serves them on a platter and there you go!

The utensils:

A frying pan to grill the chicken and the fennel, I used my Steaklover Mineral B frying pan by De Buyer (I use it all the time!!),

A food processor for the pastry,

A perforated pastry ring by De Buyer too,

A baking mat

And a rolling pin.

You know everything, you can do this!

The recipe, Chef!
