Chicken and leek pie that is creamy, flaky and filling all in one! Shop-bought puff pastry makes this super easy. Use shortcrust or homemade pastry, if preferred. This pie freezes really well, too.
This pie freezes well - simply assemble the pie and freeze before baking. Once you're ready to bake, simply throw it in the oven straight from the freezer.
Perfect recipe, I done one big pie and used shop bought pastry, the pie came out fantastic, But I bought a whole cooked chicken instead and cut that with the ham a threw it in, added the double cream etc with it and stirred in a little cornflour to thicken it and cooked it for about 25 minutes , made this recipe super quick and easy! it was delicious served with my creamy mash, and carrots and peas... Loving the nutmeg also! - 17 Mar 2014
Made as suggested and was enjoyed by all - 22 Sep 2017
I made this for my family and, surprisingly, they all enjoyed it. I made a few changes though...I sauteed the leeks and onions in 1/2 a stick of butter. In a separate pot, I added an egg with the chicken stock and heated until thickened. Then I added the leeks & onions to it. I cut up the ham slices and layered it along with the cubed chicken and the leek mixture. Instead of using pie crust, I used puff pastry and just laid it across the top of the casserole. I turned the heat up to 375 degrees F. Next time I think I'll try making this in a 9x13 and covering the entire top with puff pastry so that each serving has its own little piece of puff! - 22 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
