  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped or crushed

  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml). dried Italian herb mix (more if you like)
  • 3-1/8 cups (750 ml) cream

  • Add chopped leek and cook for another minute.
  • Add the cream and the Italian herbs and salt to taste.
  • Add the chicken back to the mixture and let cool a little.
  • Line your pie dish (it needs to be quite a large dish) with the rolled out pastry setting aside enough for the top crust.
  • Spoon (or pour) the chicken mixture into the pie casing.
  • Brush a little milk around the edges and place on the top crust, pinching the edges together with your fingers to seal them.
  • Bake at 400 degrees (200 C.) for about 30 minutes.
I had chicken to cook one day and this pie just happened but it was so yummy I kept in mind what I had done. Do try it, we had mashed spuds and honey carrots with it it was great and can be pre-made earlier in the day as long as your chicken is cooked through.
