Last night I was tired and wanted to make something easy after cooking all day. So I grabbed two chicken breast fillets, some puff pastry, frozen peas, sliced leeks and ready made bechamel sauce ...... the recipe looks like a lot of work, but it really isn't - the steps are all so simple. I hope you also find it easy to throw together after a big day!

This is a very good recipe. I added mushrooms and some extra spice (basil and thyme). I made them in muffin tins (mini muffin chicken puffs)and served with potatoes. They were the perfect size for my kids and they loved them. I will be making them again. And you are right this is an easy recipe. Thank you!

This is so easy to put together. I used a square tin to make one large pie. I did halve the recipe to fit the tin I used and used 2 sheets of pastry, one for the top & one for the bottom. The flavours blended really well. I wasn't quite sure when to add the leek as this step seems to have been missed, so I added it with peas. I did also cook the leek slices briefly in the microwave before using. Will be making this again to serve to friends. Thanks for posting. :)
