Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - Gas 6 - Moderately hot)
    • If your electric oven has the options of upper, lower, both elements, use the lower element.

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a small pan and use a little of it to grease a pie dish.
  2. Cube the chicken into 1.5 cm (1/2") cubes and cut the ham into similar sized strips
  3. Season the flour with salt, pepper and nutmeg and roll the chicken in the seasoned flour so that it's well coated.
  4. Arrange the leeks and onions in the base of the pie dish.
  5. Cover with the chicken and ham pieces.
  6. Pour the remaining butter over the chicken pieces.
  7. Mix the stock and cream together and pour over the chicken.
  8. Roll out the pastry and cover the pie dish. Cut a few slashes in the crust to let air out while it's cooking
  9. Bake for 1 hour in the middle of the oven.
  10. Check after 20 minutes and if the crust looks as though it might be starting to burn, lay a sheet of tin foil over the top.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
