Chicken and sweet leek pie Category: Recipes


Tonights dinner wasn’t something I’d normally make when trying to eat more healthily, but I am participating in a forum monthly challenge and this months recipe certainly made Anthony smile. In fact, anything with sausages makes Anthony happy. The recipe is taken from Jamie’s Dinners – I halved everything to make dinner for two but even they were extremely generous portions.



Serves 4

  • Olive Oil
  • 2 knobs butter
  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into chunks (Mr Oliver uses 1kg/2lb 3oz boned and skinned chicken legs, cut into pieces)
  • 2 medium leeks, trimmed, washed and sliced into 1cm pieces
  • 2 carrots peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 sticks of celery finely sliced
  • A small handful of thyme, leaves picked
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 wineglass of white wine
  • ½ pint milk
  • s&p
  • 225g good pork sausages
  • 1 x 500g pack of all butter puff pastry
  • 1 egg
