Method

  1. Cook the chorizo, chicken, onion and garlic in a pan for 8–10 mins until the chicken is golden and cooked through with no pink meat.
  2. Stir in the cornflour, cook for a few seconds, add the stock and lemon juice, and bring to a simmer. Take off the heat and stir in the parsley.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/Gas Mark 6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry thinly and cut out 12x12cm (41/2inx41/2in) rounds. Place half the discs on a large baking sheet. Spoon some filling on top of each disc, leaving a narrow border around the edge. Brush the borders with milk, then place the remaining discs on top.
  4. Using a fork, press around the edges of each pie to seal, then make a little hole in the centre of each. Brush with milk and bake for 20–25 mins until golden and piping hot. Serve warm or cold.

Tip

If you find you have too much filling, then make use of it in a pasta dish or add cooked root vegetables to make a hearty casserole
