- Place a deep pot over high heat and let it get very hot.
- Remove any fat from the chicken and cut in to 1-2 cm cubes.
- Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pot and the chicken cubes.
- Sauté for a few minutes, until golden.
- Add the vegetables, apart from the potatoes and sauté until the onion becomes translucent. Add a little more olive oil if necessary.
- Add the wine and allow the alcohol to evaporate.
- Add the flour. Stir and sauté for 1 minute.
- Add the bouillon cube and water.
- Turn down heat to low. Cover pot and simmer for 30-35 minutes, until the chicken has almost completely softened.
- Since flour has been added, you should stir with a wooden spoon from time to time so that the sauce doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.
- When the chicken is soft enough, remove from heat and add the heavy cream and parsley.
- Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
- Transfer to an ovenproof baking dish that can hold 2 liters. The dish should have enough sauce that is quite thick.
- You can add some boiled potatoes, chopped in to cubes. This is optional. The consistency of the dish should be like thick soup. Season to taste.
- Whisk the egg and brush over the edges of the baking dish.
- Spread the puff pastry over the baking dish and press down along the edges so it can stick. The egg brushed there will help it stick easier.
- Pierce the surface of the puff pastry with a sharp knife so that the steam created while cooking can escape. Brush the remaining egg over the puff pastry.
- Bake for 45 minutes, until golden.
