In a second sauce pan, heat the remaining butter and saute the remaining onions and allow to cool.

Combine the cooked rice, fried onion, remaining parsley, mushrooms, chopped egg herbs and veloute.

Roll out half the pastry into a rectangle.

Place 1/4 of the rice mixture on the pastry, leaving a 3/4" (2 cm) rim from each edge.

Continue to make layers of rice then chicken.

You should finish with 4 layers of rice and 3 layers of chicken.

Place the second piece of dough on top.

Brush the edges firmly to seal the edges.
