Rich, indulgent and utterly delicious, this chicken and ham hock pie will bring everyone to the dinner table. You'll make an aromatic creamy thyme sauce for the chicken and ham filling, then bake the pie lid separately for great crisp texture. Served with garlic infused mash and crisp green veg on the side.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Creamy Chicken & Ham Hock Pie With Garlic Mash

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6 and boil a kettle, then peel and slice the brown onion[s] 

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 6-7 min or until softened

2 Creamy Chicken & Ham Hock Pie With Garlic Mash

While the onion is cooking, cut the chicken breast[s] into large, bite-sized pieces

Strip the thyme leaves and chop finely, discarding the stems 

Dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube in 150ml [250ml] boiled water

3 Creamy Chicken & Ham Hock Pie With Garlic Mash

Line a separate baking tray with non-stick baking paper

Unwrap the puff pastry and cut it into 2 [4] squares 

Score a 1cm border around the edge of the pastry with a knife

Crimp the borders with a fork and put the tray in the oven for 15-20 min or until puffed up and golden – these are your pie lids

4 Creamy Chicken & Ham Hock Pie With Garlic Mash

Once the onion has softened, add the chopped chicken to the pan and cook for 3-4 mins further or until starting to brown

Add 1 tsp [2 tsp] flour with the Chinese rice wine, chicken stock, Dijon mustard and soft cheese and cook for 8-10 min further or until the sauce has thickened

Once thickened, stir through the ham hock and chopped thyme – this is your creamy chicken & ham hock filling

5 Creamy Chicken & Ham Hock Pie With Garlic Mash

Meanwhile, peel and chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces

Peel the garlic cloves

Add the potatoes and garlic to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt over a high heat and cook for 15 min or until fork-tender

Once done, drain and set aside to steam dry

Boil a kettle

 

6 Creamy Chicken & Ham Hock Pie With Garlic Mash

Once the potatoes have been boiling for 10 min, add the Tenderstem broccoli and asparagus spears to a pot of boiling water and cook for 4-5 min or until tender with a slight bite

Drain and set aside until serving

7 Creamy Chicken & Ham Hock Pie With Garlic Mash

Return the drained potatoes and garlic to a low heat and add a splash of milk and a large knob of butter

Mash until smooth, then season generously with salt – this is your garlic mash
