Chicken, pea and bacon pie


Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

  2. Heat the butter in a pan and gently fry the onion until softened but not coloured.

  3. Add the bacon and fry until golden-brown.

  4. Add the chicken pieces and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until lightly cooked on all sides.

  5. Add the peas and double cream, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Pour the mixture into an ovenproof dish.

  6. Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface and cut the pastry to fit over the top of the dish. Cover the chicken mixture with the pastry and cut a steam hole in the centre.

  7. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the pastry is golden-brown and the chicken is completely cooked through.

  8. To serve, place servings of the pie onto plates.
