Pithivier with chicken and thyme

Pithivier with chicken and thyme


  • Preheat oven to 200 C°
  • Saute the chicken in a bit of olive oil until golden brown.  Add the garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes. 
  • Add the thyme and remove from heat. Remove the chicken and set side.
  • In the same pan we add the butter, when melted add the flour.  We stir well for it not to clump. Add the milk slowly while stirring consistently until it thickens.
  • Add the cheeses bit by bit while continuously stirring for it to melt, and then add the chicken. 
  • Add the peas if you like, salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Place the mixture in a bowl and let it cool in the refrigerator.
  • We cut the pastry sheets into 2 circles, one bigger than the other.  We place the larger sheet on the bottom of the pan. 
  • We pour the filling over the sheet but leaving 1cm empty around the edges so that we are able to cover the pie easily. 
  • We brush some egg yolk over the section where there is no filling and place the other sheet over the filling. 
  • We pinch together the 2 pastry sheets with a fork so the pastry will close nicely, leaving a decretive touch.
  • We take a sharp knife and poke a hole in the center of the pastry about 1-2 cm in diameter so that the steam will be able to escape while baking.  We continue by scoring from the center of the pie to the outer edges. (like your slicing a pie)
  • We brush the pie with egg yolk…bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.



You can add anything else to the filling if you like!!!
