The Body Coach Chicken Pie!

Tonight I made a delicious chicken pie. The recipe is from Joe Wicks A.K.A. The Body Coach. He has received a lot of publicity in recent months, after his first book soared to number one in the book charts! His 30-day Shift, Shape & Sustain plan is based on fuelling your body with the right foods and completing HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts. Follow him on Instagram @thebodycoach to see some of his transformations from people using his 90 Day SSS plan and his delicious #LeanIn15 meals. In his book meals are tailored based on the stage of his plan you are at, however this is just a general recipe I came across and liked the look of!

So here’s what you’ll need:

2 large knobs of butter 
1 large leek, washed and chopped into 2cm pieces 
200g mushrooms, roughly chopped 
4 x 250g chicken fillets, cut into bite-size pieces 
250ml chicken stock 
1 tbsp cornflour 
100ml double cream 
2 large handfuls baby spinach leave s
6 sheets of Filo pastry 
Olive oil to drizzle 
Salad or veggies to serve 

And here’s what you need to do:

  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees C/fan 170 degrees C/gas mark 5
  • Heat the butter in a frying pan – add the mushrooms, leeks and fry for 2-3 mins
  • Turn up the heat, add the chicken and cook for further 2 mins – the chicken won’t be cooked through so pour in the stock and let it simmer 
  • Mix the cornflour with 2 tablespoons of water until smooth and add to the pan and then add the double cream 
  • Bring back to the boil, stirring until sauce thickens
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the spinach 
  • Pour mix into a pie dish and set aside to cool 
  • Take a sheet of filo and crumple it – put on top of the filling and repeat with the rest of the sheets 
  • Drizzle top of pastry with olive oil and put into oven for approx 20 minutes – check it after this time, mine needed an extra 10 mins because the filo was not yet golden brown 

Voila!



This was absolutely delicious. If you’re looking for a filling yet healthy dinner this is perfect. Joe recommends serving this with salad or vegetables, however I just ate it by itself as I thought it was filling enough. My younger sister, aged 13, really enjoyed this so it might be a good option for mums struggling with meal ideas for school kids.

Enjoy!
