Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Prepare 500ml of béchamel (white sauce) using the Knorr Stock Pots to flavour  the sauce.
  3. Melt the Flora Buttery in a frying pan. Cook the leeks without colour until softened and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Cut each chicken breast into three pieces and poach  for approx 10 minutes in the béchamel sauce, stirring until the chicken is half-cooked.
  5. Transfer the chicken, béchamel and leek mix to a pie dish, leave to cool.
  6. Roll out the shortcrust pastry. Brush the edges of the dish with beaten egg, and mould the pastry over the dish, don't trim the edges and brush with egg wash.
  7. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until it is golden brown.
