  1. Defrost pastry safely in a fridge overnight
  2. Prepare béchamel sauce as per FFT recipe and keep warm
  3. In a separate heavy bottomed pan, add enough olive oil for frying
  4. Once hot, add the diced onion, sliced leeks, diced carrots and garlic
  5. Sweat for 10 minutes on a medium heat, without browning, allowing all of the flavours to marry
  6. Add the diced chicken, salt and pepper to taste and the mixed herbs
  7. Continue to cook, stirring regularly until the chicken reaches a core temperature of 75˚C for 30 seconds
  8. Once this has been achieved add the béchamel sauce into the chicken mixture and cook for a further 10 minutes to allow the flavours to develop
  9. Beat the eggs and milk together
  10. Roll out puff pastry to a thickness of 5mm
  11. Tip mixture evenly into a ceramic baking dish and allow to cool slightly
  12. Top the mixture with the pastry and crimp the edges with a fork
  13. Brush the pastry with the egg and milk mixture (this makes it golden and shiny on the top)
  14. Cook in the oven at 180˚C for around 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is risen and puffed up with a golden glaze on the top
