Ingredients

  • leeks 2, washed and finely chopped
  • 
butter
  • skinless chicken thighs 500g, cut into large pieces
  • plain flour 1 1/2 tbsp
  • chicken stock 300ml
  • double cream 100ml
  • parsley a handful, chopped
  • croissant dough 1 pack, approx 240g, (we used Jus-Rol)

Method

  • Step 1

    Cook the leeks with a knob of butter until softened. Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes, then sprinkle over the flour and cook for a couple of minutes more, stirring. Stir in the stock gradually and simmer for 2 minutes, then stir in the cream and parsley. Season, tip into a pie dish and leave to cool.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Unroll the croissant dough and cut into squares. Cover the surface of the pie with the dough, patchworking so there are no gaps. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the dough is puffed and golden.
