Great way to use up leftover roast chicken or turkey - I haven't met anyone who doesn't enjoy this pie! It only requires pastry on top so save time by using frozen puff pastry. This pie has lots of vegetables already including leeks, peas, carrots and onions so simply serve with boiled or roast potatoes.
Found this recipe when I was searching web to find something I could make to use up 4 cooked chicken breasts which were just about to go out of date. I usually make a famous male chef's chicken pie which uses uncooked chicken. However, after making THIS pie, we were all hooked. It is really tasty and my whole family enjoyed it. It has veg in it too which I felt was a real plus with children. I didn't faff about with the pastry as described in recipe. I simply poured mixture into an oblong dish and draped the shop bought pastry over it. This is the way the famous male chef does too! I didn't use an egg to brush surface- just a wee bit milk. I cooked it in a fan oven at 200• C for about 30 minutes or so. It was fantastic! Thanks! - 15 Feb 2016
