  1. Heat the butter in a large shallow saucepan with a drizzle of oil to prevent the butter from burning.
  2. Add in the chicken and cook for 4–5 minutes, then add the leeks, onion, garlic, mushrooms and black pudding at this stage, add a little seasoning.
  3. Add a tablespoon of flour to thicken the mixture and pour in the white wine and cream allowing the mixture to come to a gentle boil whilst stirring all the time.
  4. Simmer for 5–6 minutes until the liquid has reduced and thickened, then set aside for approx 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare the pie dish by rubbing the edges with a little oil or butter and a dusting of flour.
  7. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface, then using the dish base as a template, cut around the base and place the pastry in the base of the dish.
  8. Use the remaining pastry to line the edges of the dish then pour in the cooled mixture.

    Hi Eimear,
    Kevin recommends using the near to the full quantity of cream as the flour will absorb an amount of it but you can also replace the cream with stock if you are counting calories.
    Let us know how you get on!

    I haven't made this yet,but will at the weekend. reading the previous comment I calculated calories at 1,050 per portion, but would query using 400ml cream even with reduction would this volume not be very wet in this pie? I would venture 100ml which would make cals around 700 per portion. Or maybe just eat it on days when you have had an energetic hike!
