Recipe: Chicken & Bacon Pie

Everyone loves pie! So I made a good one!

You will need (for 3 sensible portions, or two greedy ones):

1 pack of Jus Roll Puff Pastry
1 small roast chicken
6 rashers of good quality streaky bacon
1 handful of sliced leeks
1 handful of sliced mushrooms
3 tbsp Bisto white sauce mixture
1 tbsp tarragon

Side Serving:

1 pack of trimmed asparagus
1 pack of French beans
6 shallots
3 cloves of garlic

This recipe is just my version of my friend Jo’s whose recipe I have admired for years!

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop your bacon into little 1cm thick strips and using two forks strip your chicken into shreds.
  2. Fry the leeks until they start to soften. Add in your bacon and mushrooms until the bacon is cooked.
  3. Add 250ml boiling water to the white sauce and tarragon and stir until it thickens. Add the white sauce and chicken to the leek/mushroom/bacon pan.
  4. Wash the beans and asparagus, crush the garlic, peel the shallots and leave them whole. Toss in some olive oil and place into a roasting tray.
  5. Lightly grease your pie dish and line with 3/4 of the puff pastry rolled out. Add your filling in. 
  6. Lay the rolled out remains of the pastry on top. I always like a little design on the top. Valentine’s Day = a heart! Other days usually involve daft messages…
  7.  Place the pie and your tray of vegetables into the oven for 15-20 minutes to cook.
  8. Stuff yo’ face.
