Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Front Page -

WIN­NER Piem­i­nis­ter Fungi Chicken

■ £3.50 for 270g; ocado.com A flaky pie, filled with gen­er­ous cuts of chicken and Por­to­bello mush­rooms in a rich, creamy sauce. A de­li­cious taste of earthy mush­rooms and ten­der meat. Poppy seeds add a rus­tic touch to the golden-brown pas­try top. 84/100

RUN­NERS-UP Char­lie Bigham’s 2 Chicken & Mush­room

■ £8 for 600g; ocado.com Our testers adored the puff pas­try that gives this pie a home-made ap­pear­ance. Its tempt­ingly sweet aroma comes from fino sherry, and white wine bol­sters the well-sea­soned creamy sauce. Filled with pleas­ingly thick slices of mush­room. 81/100

Too Good To Be… Gluten Free Chicken & Wild Mush­room

£3.29 for 200g; ocado.com A gluten-free pie that de­liv­ers on flavour. This im­pressed us with its smooth, rich sauce, packed with thyme, pars­ley and rose­mary. The short­crust pas­try was but­tery but some found it too soft. 78/100
