Method

  1. Dry-fry the bacon in a frying pan until it’s crispy. Put in a large bowl. Add about a third of the butter to the pan and fry the mushrooms until browned. Add to the bacon.
  2. Add the rest of the butter to the pan, with the flour, and stir to make a thick paste. Pour in the stock gradually, to make a sauce, and bring to the boil for a minute. Stir in the crème fraîche, parsley and seasoning. Pour into the bowl and add the bacon and mushrooms. Cool. Mix chicken into the sauce and put the filling in the pie dish.
  3. Roll out the pastry, if necessary, to ensure that it fits on top of the dish. Brush water on the dish’s edge, put a strip of pastry around, then lay the pastry top on and seal edges, then trim and decorate. Cut shapes out of the leftover pastry and stick on top with water.
  4.  Set the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Brush the pastry with beaten egg. Bake for 40 mins until golden.
To freeze: Open-freeze the unbaked pie. Put in a polybag, seal, label and freeze. Use within 2 months. To serve from freezer thaw in the fridge overnight. Glaze and cook as above.
