Olice oil/butter/ghee for frying
4 chicken breasts
1 leek, washed & chopped into 2cm rounds
1 onion diced (red or brown)
3 garlic cloves
red chili sliced if desired
150ml double cream
1 pinch of paprika if desired
Salt & pepper
Roll of ready made puff pastry
Prepared pie dish
Pre-heat your oven to 200C, gas mark 5 or fan oven 180C
Warm some olive oil or butter or we used ghee, in a pan and add the diced onion, slice and crush the garlic and add to the pan - season with salt and sauté for 5 minutes.(Add the sliced chili at this point too if you are using it).
Add the diced leeks, stirring to mix well, turn down the heat and cook until softened.
Season well with salt & pepper and paprika if you wish.
Then dice the chicken into bite size pieces and turn the pan back up to a medium heat - add the chicken and fry off until cooked through.
Turning the heat back down add in the cream and stir well to combine, cook on a low heat for 5 minutes.
Tip the contents into the pie dish. Place the prepared pastry on top and add the dish to the oven!
Bake for 20-25 minutes (checking after 15minutes in case your oven is a quick baker!), when the filling should be bubbling and the pastry puffed.
