Creamy chicken pastel is rich and delicious. It’s originally a casserole dish made in a pie crust. This dish is very similar to the filling in a chicken pot pie and chicken ala king and can be thrown together in a short period of time. It also resembles a chicken ala king. If you want the original recipe with the crust, you can follow this link for chicken pastel.
You can use canned button mushrooms instead of fresh mushrooms. The vegetables are optional. In this recipe, we use young corn which adds a nice touch but is not completely necessary. You can use red or green bell pepper, or a combination of both for that matter. You can also add green peas. In this recipe, we use all purpose cream to make it creamy and thick, but grated cheese can also be used as a substitute, as well. Don’t forget, you can also adjust the seasoning according to your liking.
