Chicken and tarragon go so well together in these flavoursome, filling pies - and the best bit is they only take half an hour to make.


  • x 375g (13oz) packet of ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 100g (3 oz) baby button mushrooms
  • 295g (10 oz) can of condensed chicken soup
  • Handful of tarragon leaves, chopped
  • Buttered green beans, to serve

Top tip: Double up the mixture and freeze some for another time. Then thaw out and gently heat through before topping with the pastry.


  1. Unroll the pastry and cut out four 7.5cm (3in) squares. Place on a baking tray and cook at 200C (400F, gas mark 6) for 12 mins or until puffed and golden.
  2. Cut each chicken breast into five pieces and fry in the olive oil for 3 mins or until golden. Add the mushrooms, chicken soup, half of the tarragon leaves and 200ml (7fl oz) water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 8 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Add the remaining tarragon leaves and spoon the chicken mixture into four bowls. Top each with a pastry square and serve with buttered green beans.

This Recipe was unsatisfying. But Easy to cook.

lovely pie,made some adjustments though,put all the ingredients into 1 dish,added some fresh pepper and salt,also if you cant get tarragon,try basil as just as nice. i then covered with pastry,put it in the oven for 30-40 mins on low heat...viola!


I think that this recepie looks and tastes delicious even though I havent tasted it yet!!! I am definately going to use this recepie as an example for my food technology homework


This is really easy to make yet really tasty! I fed this to 5 other housemates and myself using double the recipe and had more than enough. Fresh Garlic and Onion are good ingredients to add as well.
