How To Make A LOVE Life Chicken And Leek Patchwork Pie.
Olive oil spray
500g leeks, sliced
400g British chicken breast chunks
250ml chicken stock
250ml skimmed milk, plus extra for brushing
2 tbsp corn flour
300g frozen peas
300g frozen broccoli florets defrosted slightly and cut into smaller pieces
30g reduced fat soft cheese with garlic & herbs
½ x 320g pack Jus-Rol light puff pastry sheet
How To Make A LOVE Life Chicken And Leek Patchwork Pie:
1. Firstly, 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.
5. Brush the pastry squares with milk and bake for 25-30 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling is piping hot.
Is Homemade Pie Crust Worth It?
I think so. You can use ready-made pastry in this recipe or even better make your own pie crust from scratch.
Is Homemade Pie Healthy?
I do not think any pie is healthy for you because of the butter pie topping but I think homemade pie ingredients are better for you and a lot healthier fresh ingredients can be used in them.
Homemade Pie Crust How Long To Bake?
It usually takes around 25-30 minutes for a pie to bake but wait until the crust is golden brown and the filling is piping hot.
Homemade Pie Crust With Butter:
Puff pastry is usually made with lots of butter.
Make This Recipe Gluten-Free:
You can make this recipe gluten-free make sure you buy a gluten-free chicken stock and gluten-free pasty.
How To Make This Recipe Dairy-Free:
Check that the pasty is dairy-free or make up some homemade pasty and change the milk to your favourite dairy-fee alternative milk.
