CHICKEN, LEEK & GREEN PEAS PIE
COOKBOOK: Super Food Ideas
This is also another dish which I made whilst I was away on my christmas break. I couldn’t help it, I just had to cook!
This was a random recipe selected on the day and even though it was a heavy dinner for a very hot night, it was eaten by all and seconds were served all round.
Easy to make, great recipe to follow and delicious to eat.
Dont forget, you need to let a pie stand for at least 20mins after it comes out of the oven before you serve it.
Another delicious pie!
