There is something so comforting about a traditional chicken pie with memories of school days and family lunches. Sometimes, pastry seems a bit terrifying. But honestly, have a think about it: it’s really just a vessel to hold delicious contents, all of which will spill out over your pastry making it all taste yummy anyway. And if it’s a little thick or a bit uneven, who cares? That’s what home made food is all about.
In a hurry, you can use ready made pastry. Using meat from the chicken legs and chicken thighs not only gives a richer flavor, these cuts are also much cheaper.
