    750g British Chicken Breast Fillets

    250g Leeks

    440g Creamy Lasagne Sauce

    100ml British Double Cream

    1 tsp English Mustard

    1 tsp Dried Parsley

    375g pack Ready Rolled Puff Pastry

    ½ Swede, diced

    400g Carrots, diced

    150g pack Mangetout

    25gSalted Butter

    Black Pepper and Salt

    A little Olive Oil

    A little British Milk


    Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

    Chop the chicken breasts into bite size pieces.

    Wash and trim the leeks and cut into thin rings.

    Heat a little oil in a wok or large frying pan, fry the chicken breast pieces until lightly browned, add the washed leeks, the Cucina sauce, English mustard, cream and parsley.

    Season with black pepper and mix well.

    Transfer the mixture into an oblong baking dish about 30 x 20 cm (12" x 8").

    Unroll the pastry and cover the chicken, trim the pastry to fit and crimp the edges.

    Make a few cuts in the top, to allow the steam to escape, and lightly brush with a little milk.

    Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry has risen and is golden.

    Meanwhile, add swede and carrots to a saucepan, cover with some salted boiling water, cover and cook for about 10 minutes, drain well, add the butter and keep warm.

    Cook the mangetout in some boiling salted water for 5 minutes, then drain well.

    Serve the pie with your fresh vegetables.
