This is a substantial dinner pie. Great homey food. This is being posted for the British/Irish section of the tour.

- Heat oil in a large saucepan.
- Saute onions and chicken in oil until the chicken is well browned on all sides; add carrots, coriander and sage.
- Gradually stir in flour and cook for 1 minute.

This is one of the best things I ever ate! It was so yummy and flavorful. I dont like mushrooms, so I chopped up some potato's and boiled them a little before adding them to make sure they would be soft enough. It came out perfect and I know I will be making this a lot!
Thanks, Janet, for a delicious dinner pit. Had everything in it that my sisters love (i.e. lots of veggies!). Will add this to my "have again" menues.
My bf and I really enjoyed this dish. It had great flavor from the cider, yummy:) It took alot longer to bake than I thought it would, but my oven tends to be slow. Made this for ZWT3, thanks!
