It's a Philippine or Chilean chicken 'pie'

Typically with a top crust only.

I found a recipe. I don't know if it helps. I do know that you can add heavy cream to just about anything like that as long as you slightly reduce the other liquids.


  • 1 chicken (1 kilo)
  • 1 pc. chorizo de bilbao, chopped
  • 1 big onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 carrot small cubes
  • 2 potatoes, medium size cubes
  • 1 small can sausage, cubes
  • 8-10 pcs. olives (optional)
  • 1/2 kilo chicken giblets & liver
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. vetsin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed

Brown garlic in butter. Add onion, chicken (cut into small serving pieces), giblets, liver, and chorizo. Stir for 2 minutes, add 1/2 of broth. Cover; simmer for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Stir in remaining chickne broth. Lastly, add milk and thicken sauce with dissolved flour.
When chicken is almost done, transfer to baking dish. garnish top with hard-boiled egg (cut into half). Cover with pie crust. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until crust turns golden brown. Pastel Crust:
  • 4 cups all-purpose-flour (sift 3 times)
  • 1 cup shortening or margarine
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup water
Add salt and sugar to flour. Cut in shortening using two knives. Gradually add water. Mix with hand but do not knead. When well blended, roll out on floured board. Fit on top of prepared 'pastel'. brush with beaten egg yolk or milk.

If you have 'Google' or any other search engine like Yahoo, Ask.com or whatnot, all you have to do is type in what you are looking for and typically you'll get probably more answers than you had anticipated.
