    LOVE life chicken and leek patchwork pie

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 50 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    Olive oil spray
    500g essential Waitrose leeks, sliced
    400g essential Waitrose British chicken breast chunks
    250ml Cooks’ Ingredients chicken stock
    250ml skimmed milk, plus extra for brushing
    2 tbsp Waitrose easy thickening sauce
    flour
    300g frozen peas
    300g essential Waitrose frozen broccoli florets, defrosted slightly and cut into smaller pieces
    30g essential Waitrose reduced fat soft cheese with garlic & herbs
    ½ x 320g pack Jus-Rol light puff pastry sheet

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Spray a large saucepan with oil and cook the leeks and chicken for 5 minutes until the leeks are softened and the chicken golden.

    2. Add the stock and milk, bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat. Add the sauce flour to the pan, bring to the boil and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring until smooth and thickened.

    3. Stir in the peas, broccoli and soft cheese, then tip into an ovenproof pie dish. Sit the dish on a baking sheet.

    4. Cut the pastry into 12 squares and arrange on top of the filling – the pastry should overlap a little in places but not cover the filling completely.

    Brush the pastry squares with milk and bake for 25-30 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling is piping hot.
