Mid Week Meal: Chicken Pie

I usually just make up a filling as I go for my chicken pies but one night last week I was tossing up between making a pie or another chicken dish that I love and usually serve over a potato hash. I decided to combine the two.
Mustard Cream Chicken
(to be served on a potato hash or as a pie filling)
1 T oil
2 tsp crushed garlic
3 chicken breasts
3/4 c. white wine
1 T chopped or dried basil
2 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 c. cream
3 shallots or a medium onion chopped
1 tsp cornflour
2 tsp water
Heat oil in a pan, add garlic, shallots/onions and chicken (whole for potato hash version or diced for pie version). Cook until browned all over.
Add wine, basil and mustard and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Stir in cream and cornflour blended with water (you may need a little more to thicken enough for a pie filling), Cook, stirring, until thickened.
Serve chicken sliced with potato hash or use to fill a pie.

Potato Hash
Mix together 2 large potatoes(peeled and grated), 1 egg, 1 T flour and chopped parsley.
Heat some oil in a fry pan, add mixture and flatten and shape into a round.
Cook until golden, turn over and cook the other side until golden.
