Chicken, Ham and Leek Pie


Chicken, Ham and Leek Pie

What could be more comforting on a snowy day? I utilised leftover roast chicken and gammon in this chicken, ham and leek pie.

I gently cooked the leeks for 40 minutes and they turned lovely and sweet, a perfect compliment to the chicken and ham. You'll also see I used ready made puff pastry for this pie - sometimes life is too short....especially when there are snowmen to build.
