Chicken and Leek Pie By Dean Edwards On Lorraine Itv

A really easy chicken pie recipe using filo pastry on the top covering chicken thigh cubes pancetta and leeks in a cream sauce


Season the flour and add to a large bowl, dust the chicken in the seasoned flour and fry (in batches until browned) in a pan with some oil. Remove and set aside. Add the pancetta to the same pan and cook for a couple of mins, add the leeks, garlic and thyme and continue cooking for a couple of minutes. Add the remaining flour and cook out for a minute. Add the wine and reduce over a high heat until reduced by half then add the stock and reduce again, add the browned chicken, peas, mustard and cream and bring to the boil then simmer for 5 mins, season with salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to a buttered oven proof dish then lay on a sheet of filo, brush with butter then layer on another sheet then repeat the process a few more times, scrunching up the edges as you go. Cook in a pre heated oven set at 190c for 30-35 mins.
