Ingredients

  • 1 packet of ready rolled puff pastry or short crust if you prefer.
  • half a cooked chicken (or turkey)
  • 1 leek, chopped (or onion)
  • 1/2 packet of smoked streaky bacon cut into little pieces
  • 3/4 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1 vegetable stock cube dissolved in 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 oz plain flour
  • 1/2 oz butter and a little oil (vegetable or olive)

Method

    1. Strip carcass of chicken, cutting meat into large pieces. If you prefer you can buy uncooked boneless chicken but you would need to pre cook it at this stage.
    2. Saute leek (or onion), bacon and mushrooms in the butter and oil. When soft, add flour.
    3. Add stock, stirring continuously then add the milk so that the sauce is rich and creamy. If the sauce is a little thick, add more liquid.
    4. Add the pre cooked chicken, and stir carefully until meat is completed coated and empty contents into a large pie dish. Again if you prefer to make this like a more traditional pie you can line the pie dish with the rolled out short crust pastry before putting in the filling.
    5. Cover with pastr chosen pastry, making a vent in the pie top, and brush with milk.
    6. Bake in oven on a high temperature (200C/400F/gas 6) for around 25mins or until golden.
    7. Tip: With the stockcube and bacon, there is no need for extra seasoning however, you could substitute some of the stock with a little leftover white wine.

This is delicious! I also used half a pint of stock and a quarter pint of milk as I was a bit confused by the cups and it was just the right amount. I will be making this again and again and again. Thank you! :)

Lovely! I have to agree with the 'cup' measurement comment but apart from that it's lovely simple pie. I added a tablespoon of grainy mustard to the mix

Very easy and very tasty. I left out the bacon and cooked the pastry separately on a baking tray - I haven't had much luck with pie tops in the past! Anyway, it was delicious.

Please DO NOT start with the cup nonsense. What is this universal cup that weighs and measures everything you put into it? Please stick to measurements, I can do that as I have various things in my kitchen that are made to do that. This is the BBC is it not, not the BBCUSA? Now I have to go and guess the measurement of a cup of stock and a half cup of milk, any suggestion?
Otherwise this is a good recipe, thank you. But I may have ruined it by my guesswork!

All time favourite pie recipe. Sorry it's taken me so long to review it. Have made it many times for many people and always a hit. Often make the filing the day before and keep it in the fridge, makes a super quick mid week meal.

looked for a recipe to use up the rest of the NYD chicken, this was easy to make and perhaps the best chicken pie I have ever tasted, one to keep and make again

Made this three times now, and it's very easy and very good. We found it a bit too salty (and I like salty food) so the third time I swapped out the bacon for chopped ham, which worked better for us.

Very nice.
