Chicken and Corn Impossible Pie (Thermomix Method Included)

Love, love, love Impossible Pies… So quick and easy and really, you can put anything in them, you are only limited by your imagination and the size of your pie dish 🙂

This recipe is for an 8 cup pie dish, but you can halve it if you only have a 4 cup dish (generally standard). My dish was a gift for my 33rd birthday (I didn’t have a 30th so it became a 30ish birthday party) given to me as a part of a set by my good friends, Jeff, Julie and Sara! It is wonderful, as it even has a stand, so you can put it straight from the oven on to the table, make a nice big salad, dinner is ready and looks gorgeous to boot!

Chicken Impossible Pie

Ingredients
500g Chicken Thighs or Breasts or Mince
1 Tin Corn Kernels
6 Green Shallots/Spring Onions
3 Cloves Garlic
6 Fresh Sage Leaves (dried is fine)
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (20g)
200g Grated Tasty Cheese
1 Cup Self Raising Flour (150g)
2 Cups of Milk (500g)
8 Eggs
2 Teaspoons of Salt
Pepper

VEGETARIAN VERSION
If you want a vegetarian version of this substitute the chicken for 300g of cooked, chopped and drained spinach and swap out the 200g of cheese for 100g of Feta and 100g of Tasty.

GLUTEN FREE VERSION
Gluten Free Self Raising Flour works just as well, but you will need to put in 1 1/2 cups instead of just 1 cup.

Method
1. Pre heat oven to 180°C and butter a large 8 cup pie dish making sure you butter it well and get into all the nooks and crannies.
2. Add finely chop shallots, garlic and roughly chopped sage leaves to a large frying pan, sauté in olive oil until transparent.
3. Add chopped chicken to mixture and fry until almost cooked remove from the heat, add corn and mix.
4. Place chicken and corn mixture into the bottom of prepared pie dish and sprinkle with cheese.

5. In another bowl whisk together eggs, flour, milk, salt and pepper.
6. Place pie dish on a tray and fill with mixture so it is nearly full. Place the tray and push in the oven and pour the remaining mixture in. This will make sure that you don’t spill any on the way to the oven!

Fill it to the brim while it is in the oven.

7. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes for the 8 cup… 40 minutes if you have halved it.
8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the dish for about 15 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the dish. Cut a big piece, serve with a nice fresh salad and eat!

I then enjoy this cold for lunch the next day with a bit of home made relish and salad. It is great to take to a picnic and also very quick and easy to make to bring to pot luck dinners and things where you need to bring something to share. Depending on how much you eat, this serves 6 – 8 people with salad or 8 – 10 if you serve it with some extra vegetables and bread.

    This was a regular when I was a kid (1970’s). My Mom would use whatever leftovers she had — meat, chopped onions (veggies), and cheese then she pour the bisquick batter over the top. It was always one of my favorites!

    Impossible Pie is so easy. Very forgiving- you can use grated carrot, zucchini, corn , onion, tomato and or mushroom. Salmon or Tuna works well, you only have to cook the flour and butter in that case. Bacon or ham pieces are tasty too. I talked about making one for a neighbour in my recent blog – Thermonanny. I had never made the thermoversion before and just winged it. Thanks for the recipe for the Chicken one- I’ll give it a try.

    Hi 🙂
    Do you think this recipe would work out ok if I substitute the chicken for bacon?
    Thanks!!

      Hi Deb, I think it would be fine… I wouldn’t put as much bacon as chicken, as bacon can be a bit saltier and stronger in flavour. So you will have to gauge it according to your tastes! Liz xx

    Now, I don’t have one of these fancy schmancy thermomixes, but I do have the ingredients and the cool little holders for a set of baking dishes…. SOoooo, I may just have to give this bad boy a run. Super tasty.
