Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan and brown the chicken for about 5 mins. Tip into a 22 x 28cm ovenproof pie dish, then evenly scatter over the ham and roast potatoes. Heat the remaining oil and soften the leeks for about 5 mins, then stir in the flour for 1 min.

  2. Pour in the wine and stock. Bring to the boil and, stirring continuously, boil rapidly to reduce to a thick sauce. Take off the heat, then stir in the crème fraîche and seasoning. Pour over the pie filling and leave to cool.

  3. Unroll the pastry and cut off a small strip to make decorations (if you like). Roll the remainder to fit the dish and place on top of the pie. Use a fork to crimp the edges and press the pastry to the edge of the dish. Make a small hole in the centre, then cover well with cling film. Freeze for up to 3 months. For best results, defrost at room temperature for 8 hrs.

  4. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush pie with egg to glaze (making sure the steam hole hasn’t sealed up). Cook for 30-40 mins, until golden and hot through.

A great recipe. I made fresh shortcrust pastry and substituted the potatoes with leftover chunks of roast squash (less carbs and adds some veg to the pie).
I was a bit wary of the "winey" smell but the final flavour is lovely!

This was extremely well received in this house. I had enough chicken etc for two pies which each fed three. We have just had the frozen one. I included some stuffing balls and used the leftover gravy as well. The daughter that had missed the original roast (hence all the leftovers), declared it to be just as good as a roast dinner. Praise indeed as roast chicken is one of her favourites. Will definitely be making again.

I have made this pie twice now and both times it has work perfectly! The first time was for a dinner party competition for 8 (had to make two pies) which I served with honey roasted celeriac, parsnips and carrots and we won! The second time I made it with leftover roast chicken and mushrooms (as had to use them up) and the same leek sauce and it turned out great! Only cooked for two people second time so froze half of the pie.
