Chicken Pie

The Engineer onboard our boat is obsessed with Chicken Pie. Every weekend there is a Chicken Pie in the fridge for him and by Monday it’s usually all gone! I’ve made this so often that I’ve realised it doesn’t need to be as fiddly as people think. I always use leftover chicken and blitz the rest of the ingredients to make a fab filling. You can get great shop bought pastry and after that it’s just a matter of assembling…
