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.
