No Cooking Required - Chicken & Gravy

Let us kick this month off with a toasted sandwich version of my favourite “I do not feel like cooking dinner tonight” recipe – Chicken Pie.

I learned this recipe from my mum. Basically, you strip all of the meat from a store brought pre-cooked chicken, mix it with chicken gravy and encase in pre-made puff pastry. Twenty minutes in the oven and it is ready! Cooking does not come any easier than this.

I must admit the toasted sandwich version of my chicken pie does not taste as nice as the real thing. Comparing the two directly is a little unfair, after all puff pastry does taste much better than bread.

According to my toastie monster, chicken pie must be covered in tomato sauce. Personally, the addition of tomato sauce drives me up the wall. How do you like your chicken pie/toastie, covered in sauce, or sauce free?


Chicken & Gravy

Makes: 2 toasties

  • 1/2 cup  pre cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1/3 cup ready made chicken gravey, cold
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. Preheat the toastie maker and butter each of the four slices of bread (optional).
  2. Combine the chicken and gravey in a bowl.
  3. Place one slice of bread, butter side down, onto the bottom grill plate.
  4. Spoon half of the mixture onto the centre of the bread.
  5. Place the top piece of bread on top of the mixture, butter side up.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for the other grill plate.
  7. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.

  • Add pre cooked vegetables such as peas, corn and carrots to make this toastie a little bit healthier.
