Recipe - Cheat's Bacon & Leek Pie

Gerry's Kitchen Cheat's Chicken Pie Easy Recipe
We're halfway through British Pie Week so I couldn't let the week go by without getting involved. However, I didn't have a lot of spare time available in order to make a proper pie from scratch so I came up with this quick and easy recipe that allows you to serve up a delicious chicken, bacon & leek pie in just over 30 minutes.
Ingredients (serves 2)
  • 1 chicken breast, chopped
  • 100g bacon lardons
  • 2 small leeks, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 150ml soured cream
  • 150g ready roles puff pastry
Method
  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 7, 220C
  2. Heat a little oil in a pan then add the chicken, cooking until the chicken is browned all over.
  3. Add the bacon lardons and cook through before adding the leeks and garlic. Continue cooking until the leeks begin to soften.
  4. Transfer the chicken, bacon and leek mixture to an ovenproof pie dish then stir in the soured cream before topping with the rolled out pastry.
  5. Cut a small hole in the top of the pastry then place the pie dish into the oven and cook for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden in colour.
  6. Remove from oven and leave to stand for five minutes before serving.

I served the pie with new potatoes and roasted broccoli but I'm sure that mashed potatoes would have worked just as well. This pie is so easy to prepare and packs a huge amount of flavour. I'm a big fan of meals that can be prepared quickly and with little fuss - this pie certainly tickets those boxes. Give it a go for yourself and why not let me know how you get on?
