    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 4 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    • 2 leeks, chopped
    • 1 (295g) tin cream of celery condensed soup
    • 250ml white wine
    • 1 tablespoon cornflour
    • 1 sheet shortcrust pastry

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

    1. In a medium size frying pan, brown the chicken pieces over medium high heat. Add the chopped leeks. Once the leeks are soft, add the soup and wine and sprinkle the cornflour over the top. Mix in. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until the mixture starts to really thicken.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    3. Pour the mixture into a 2 litre baking dish and cover with the shortcrust pastry. Use a fork to make 'breathing' holes in the pastry. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until the pastry is brown. Let cool and serve.

    This turned out REALLY good. I altered it slightly, but only for my own convenience. Instead of browning the chicken, I pre-baked it for an hour at 350, covered. So, I sauteed the leeks alone until soft, then added the soup and 1 cup of chicken broth (because I didn't want to buy wine), then added the cornstarch and let thicken. Once the chicken was finished, I shredded it, transferred to a square 8 X 8 pyrex baking dish, mixed with the leek/soup mixture, then covered with a single sheet of puff pastry. It turned out very good, just like chicken pot pie. Excellent comfort food.  -  10 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    this was super tasty, and I don't even usually like things like chicken pot pie... i used a can of condensed cream of asparagus instead of vegetable soup, and added some broccoli florets... turned out delicious and actually i thought it looked pretty good as well.  -  02 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was really tasty, I also put in some fresh chopped asparagus which added to the flavour (you could also try broccoli). I put puff pasty on top of the casserole dish sprinkled with poppy seeds which really worked well.  -  13 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
