Strip carcass of a chicken, cutting meat into large pieces. If you prefer you can buy a uncooked boneless chicken but you would need to pre cook it at this stage.

Saute leek (or onion), bacon and mushrooms in the butter and oil. When soft, add flour.

Add stock, stirring continuously then add the milk so that the sauce is rich and creamy. If the sauce is a little thick, add more liquid.

Add the pre cooked chicken, and stir carefully until meat is completed coated and empty contents into a large pie dish. Again if you prefer to make this like a more traditional pie you can line the pie dish with the rolled out short crust pastry before putting in the filling.

Cover with pastry chosen pastry, making a vent in the pie top, and brush with milk.

Bake in an oven at a high temperature (200C/400F/gas 6) for around 25mins or until golden.
