Chicken Mushroom and Leek Pie
I am partial to a delicious savoury pie. It must be my Aussie upbringing. Though the English are also known to knock up a good pie aren't they? This recipe utilises the very amazing Iced Puff Pastry which if you have never made, you really should get onto it. I can no longer purchase puff pastry unless it is the Careme Puff, which is akin to homemade or perhaps even better!
The filling? Bechamel with other good flavors like leek and mushroom. Seriously kids, do not wait. Put this on your menu today! You will be very happy you did.
