For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

This slimming friendly Chicken and Mushroom Pie uses filo pastry which is perfect if you’re counting calories or following a plan like Weight Watchers.

We’ve used filo pastry for our Chicken and Mushroom Pie instead of shortcrust or puff. Filo is much lower in calories and Points, in fact you’d probably save around half the amount of calories by switching to filo!

This Chicken and Mushroom Pie is a real comfort food dish and is just the thing if you’re craving a calorie packed, traditional pie. Serve with chunky chips, loads of vegetables or a gorgeous salad – the possibilities are endless!

What diets is this Chicken and Mushroom Pie suitable for?

This Chicken and Mushroom Pie can be made dairy free as long as you swap out the following ingredients for dairy free versions;

  • Quark

You can also make it vegetarian by swapping out the following ingredients for vegetarian alternatives;

  • Chicken breasts
  • Chicken stock

Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.

The key ingredient to make this Chicken and Mushroom Pie is the filo pastry. You can get it in most supermarkets, usually in the chiller near the butter or in the freezer section.

You could substitute the filo pastry for a layer of mashed potato or even a small piece of puff pastry. Just remember that this will affect the calories and Points, so check how it fits into any diet plan that you’re following.

We’ve also used quark in the creamy sauce, but if you prefer you could substitute it for some low fat cream cheese instead.

Again, remember that this will affect the calories and Points, so check how it fits into any diet plan you are following!

This Chicken and Mushroom Pie is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers.

As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.

Step 1

Spray a pan with some low calorie cooking spray, sauté the onion and chicken until they start to colour.

Step 1 pinchofnom.com

Step 2

Add in the mushrooms and continue to cook until the chicken is almost cooked through (it should take about 10 minutes).

Step 2 pinchofnom.com

Step 3

Add the white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and stock. Stir and allow to reduce slightly. Mix the cornflour with a little water, then stir this into the mix until it’s thickened.

Step 3 pinchofnom.com

Step 4

Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a minute or two.

Step 5

Pre heat the oven to 180°C.

Step 6

Stir the quark into the pie mix. Check the seasoning and add some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper if necessary.

Step 7

Pour the pie filling into an oven proof dish (we used a 19 cm shallow dish but you can use a smaller deeper one if you want).

Step 8

Take one sheet of filo, lay it out flat and spray generously with low calorie cooking spray.

Step 9

Cut the sheet into 8 even pieces. Scrunch each piece up lightly then place them on top of the pie filling. Try to leave as fewer gaps as possible.

Step 9 pinchofnom.com

Step 10

Spray with a little more low calorie cooking spray.

Step 11

Place the dish on a baking tray (just in case it drips) and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the filo is golden brown and crisp all over.

Step 12

Remove from the oven and serve.

How do you know when this Chicken and Mushroom Pie is cooked?

Once assembled, you’ll need to cook your Chicken and Mushroom Pie for 15-20 minutes or until the filo pastry is golden brown and crisp all over.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

How long can you keep this Chicken and Mushroom Pie in the fridge?

Once you’ve put it out, ideally you should eat it within 4 hours.

If you allow any leftovers to cool, make sure to refrigerate in a container with a lid and chill. You can keep leftovers of Chicken and Mushroom Pie in the fridge for approximately 3 days or so.

Can I freeze this Chicken and Mushroom Pie?

Yes you can! This recipe can be frozen, but we would recommend just freezing the filling and then adding the filo when you’re ready to cook it.

Please also remember to do the following;

  • Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough.
  • Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.

Don’t forget to add a label with what it is, and on what date you put it in the freezer!

How do I reheat this Chicken and Mushroom Pie?

From chilled: Place in an oven proof dish, loosely cover the top with foil and place into a pre-heated (180°C) for 10 minutes, or until piping hot throughout.

Pie filling from frozen: Allow to defrost and then add to an oven proof dish. Preheat the oven to 180°C, then follow the method on the recipe card from Step 8.

Just made this for our family and it was delicous. Lots of empty plates and the kids gave it 10 out of 10.
Can’t wait to make it again!

    Hi Ant. We sometimes top it with mashed potato like a shepherds pie. Hope you enjoy it!

What can you use as a quark substitute?

    LisaTuesday 12th May 2020

    Hi Jayne. You could use some low fat soft cheese like Philly. Hope you enjoy!

“Add in the mushrooms and continue to cook until the chicken is almost cooked through (it should take about 10 minutes).”

Do you cook this on high or low? I’m not very good at cooking meat so I didn’t want it ruined.

    Hey, cook the mushrooms and chicken on a medium heat. Hope that helps!

Hi there; the WW points you’ve listed for the blue plan seem incorrect to me? I’ve tallied them up myself and am not getting 10 points per portion, rather 3. On the green plan chicken and mushroom must both be counted, so I would expect that to be higher than blue by more than 1sp.

I made this for dinner this evening. I used shiitake mushrooms and added peas and sweetcorn and it was YUM. Also I didn’t have white wine vinegar, so I substituted it with rice vinegar that I found in the cupboard. . Yum, Yum, Yum. (Thank you)

Was hoping to make this for dinner tomorrow but hubby couldn’t find any quark. He bought Philadelphia light instead bless him – any chance this would work or am I going to need an additional trip to the shop?

Hello. I want to make this recipe in my Instant Pot. Is this possible as the recipe appears in the Instant Pot index/group of recipes, but the instructions are for conventional oven/oven top cooking.
Thanks.

This was unbelievably delicious, everyone loved it. We’re already thinking of trying variations with chicken, ham and leek or using beef casserole as a base and topping with filo.

Made this for dinner tonight. I used left over ham instead of chicken and added carrots, roasted baby potatoes, and some sage and thyme. Wowee, it was amazing! The family were licking their plates clean! There was fights for seconds!

I love making this but always seem to waste a pack of filo as they don’t come in individual wrapped sheets.
Any tips for this?

Reply

    KateSunday 11th June 2017

    Hi Jemma,
    You could try buying the chilled filo then divide the remainder up into portions and freeze it so you can defrost what you need next time

    Reply

Amy Nesbitt-WrightTuesday 2nd May 2017

Do you think the pie insides could be made and then frozen for use later?

Reply

    KateWednesday 3rd May 2017

    Hi Amy
    The filling can certainly be frozen. If you were to add the filo on top you would probably have to put it on then freeze it before cooking

    If you change the portions to ‘3’ on the recipe above, it will recalculate the recipe for your requirements.
