I am not keen well actually hate creamy/white sauces in anything!

I would like to make a chicken pie but all the recipes that I can find have a cream based sauce.

Any ideas?

Put gravy in the pie instead?

Just use a gravy instead? I've never done it myself, but have bought pies like that.

Like this - disclaimer, might be a crap recipe, but you get the idea!

BBCgoodfood has recipes for Spanish chicken pie and Italian chicken pie. Both use a tomato based sauce with a potato topping.

This pie is nice You can reduce the milk and fiddle around with the ingredients. DS likes it and he hates creamy sauces.

Just replace the milk with stock in any recipes you fancy - I do that often as DH doesn't like creamy things. You may need a little less stock/bit more whatever thickening agent than in the original recipe - start with adding less stock as you can always add more if things get too thick.

Just use the same recipe, maybe toning down the seasoning and add stock. Thicken with a bit of cornflour.

I freeze leftover gravy from a roast dinner for pies.

I just use gravy.

What irritates me out chicken pies is the vast majority of recipes have mushrooms in them. What's
Wrong with a chicken and veg pie with no creamy sauce and sodden mushrooms? angry
