Chicken & mushroom gateau

Method

  • Heat a little oil in a pan and gently saute the red onion with 18 diced mushrooms and 1 crushed garlic clove until softish. 
  • Whisk the milk, 2 eggs, sugar, salt and flour in a large bowl until smooth. (Should be the consistency of heavy cream and you can add a little more milk if needed.) Set aside for about 30 mins.
  • In another bowl, combine the chicken mince, 1 egg, 250 ml cream and seasonings. Add mushroom mixture and basil, stir and also set aside.
  • When the batter is ready, melt the butter in a crepe (or non-stick) pan and individually cook crepes until brown on both sides.
  • Spray the inside of small ramekins with oil, lay crepes inside, fill with the chicken mixture and fold over. Then cover with clingwrap and steam for about 30 mins.
  • To make the sauce, heat a little oil in a pan and saute the brown onion with the remaining garlic and mushrooms, sliced. Add the port and cook down to reduce. Then add the stock and a splash of cream. Stir and cook until sauce consistency is reached.
  • Carefully pour off any juices from the ramekins (into the sauce) and invert the gateaus on to individual plates. Spoon the sauce on top and serve with a garnish of basil.
