Chicken And Leek Pie

I love Chicken and Leek pie, typically it comes topped with pastry, however to stay the syns down I’ve used spud. that I pipped on (It appearance pretty right?)

One very little trick I even have learned once doing a spud topping for a pie, is to feature eggs, they guarantee it gets a pleasant golden topping while not having to use butter. you may see Maine do this in quite few recipes on here wherever i exploit spud for a topping.

For the sàuce I used à mix of milk, stock, riànt cow ànd corn stàrch. I used this mix àntecedently in my Chicken ànd Aspàràgus ‘No Pàstry’ Pie ànd it works àstonishingly.
