Chicken Leek Pie Recipe & Method

 18 January 2021 

This cheats recipe will only take 15 minutes hands on time to prepare and then 30 mins hands off time in the oven. It’s a family favourite and really easy to make since we aren’t making the pastry! Tip: if you’re in the UK then pick up some of the pastry from Lidl or Aldi, its usually less than £1 and tastes better than the branded ones! Remember that mushrooms are always optional if you don’t like them. Sour cream can be used if you can’t find Craime Fraiche. 


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 leeks 
  • 2 servings of chunky cooked ham
  • 1 punnet of mushrooms (optional)
  • 200g of creme fresh or double cream

  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard or mustard of your choice
