  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 200g green beans, chopped
  • 200g button mushrooms (halved or quartered if large)
  • 1 level tsp chicken gravy granules
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 450g can cooked lean ham, cut into small cubes
  • A handful of fresh tarragon, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 100g ready-rolled light puff pastry

method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas 4. Put the stock, chicken, onions, garlic, carrots, beans and mushrooms in a pan and cook over a medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until the onions have softened and the chicken is cooked.
  2. Add the gravy granules and tomato purée and stir well. Add the ham and tarragon, season and stir again. Remove from the heat and transfer to 4 individual, lipped pie dishes.
  3. Brush the lips of the dishes with some of the beaten egg. Cut the pastry into long, thin strips and arrange over the pies in a lattice pattern. Brush the pastry with the remaining egg and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed up and golden. Serve warm.

Tip: On Extra Easy, top with mashed potato instead of pastry if you prefer, for pies that are just ½ Syn each.
