Last week was British Pie Week here in the UK and although I’m a little late to the party, here’s a chicken and leek pie recipe that I tried, compliments of Nigel Slater via BBC Food. The recipe can be found on here on the BBC website.
One of the first cookbooks I bought when I moved to the UK was Nigel’s Real Food, so I knew this was the right one for me when I found it.
It’s probably more of a pasty than a traditional pie (what we Americans would call a pot pie) as it’s made with two sheets of puff pastry with the filling in between and then baked on a baking tray rather than in a pie tin. Easy, tasty and a good way to use up the leeks I keep getting in my veg box!
