If you do, then you'll love this recipe: chicken pastel. This classic chicken dish is an adaptation of Spain's pastel de pollo. It's basically a chicken and mushroom pie, so sometimes, the chicken pastel is served with a buttery crust on top.
That's why the chicken pastel was once a popular festive dish.
Unless you're going to make this for a party or just plain want to impress, you can skip making and putting a buttery crust like an empanada dough recipe on top of this creamy chicken mixture. You can instead concentrate on making the delicious and creamy filling.
This chicken pastel recipe is loaded with chunks! The chicken, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, and the chorizo all contribute to making this into a satisfying and filling meal. To make this chicken pastel recipe even more delicious, this is made super creamy thanks to the evaporated milk. However, that's not all. This is extra tasty because it uses cream of mushroom soup as its base.
