Shred the breast meat.
Blanch the carrots & peas & green pepper

There are not many secrets to this pie. The biggest one is to pre cook all the vegetables (except mushrooms) as they will be crunchy if you put them raw into the pie. I use six quail for this pie to serve four people, or four pheasant breasts but the quantities can be changed depending on how many birds you have available.
