1 bay leaf

Pinch ground pepper

Pinch ground salt

3tbsp flour

3tbsp butter


  1. Make the pastry
  2. Brown the chicken in the oil along with the garlic granules
  3. While the chicken is browning measure out the milk.
  4. Once the chicken has browned, turn off the heat and heat the milk with the bay leaf, salt and pepper.
  5. The milk should just start to simmer before you turn it off
  6. Remove the bay leaf and pour the sauce over the chicken
  7. Allow to cool a little
  8. Preheat the oven to 180c
  9. While the filling is cooling roll out the pastry and line your pastry tin. (more coming soon on how to roll your pastry so it doesn’t break!)
  10. Bake in the oven for 25-30 mins
  11. Et voila. Chicken pie at it’s finest!
