Giant Pie

I've been talking about making a pie for a while now and finally got around to it this evening, and it was THE KING OF PIES!!!

Mmmmm, pie

Acres of short-crust pastry filled with chicken, bacon and leeks. Damn tasty and not bad for my first effort at pie making. To repeat this feat of culinary mastery, you will need:

Frozen shortcrust pastry
3 Chicken Breasts
1 Pack Unsmoked Back Bacon
1/2 Onion
2 Leeks
1 Tin condensed chicken soup
1 Egg
A very big dish

Chopped veg.
Dice the onion and bacon and fry it in a little oil until the onion goes clear.

Cooked meat
Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces and add to the pan. Add a lot of ground pepper and cook for about 5 minutes.
Chop the leeks and add to the pan for a further five minutes.
Reduce the heat and add the chicken soup and about the same amount of milk. Stir thoroughly.

Pie filling
Grease a pie dish and roll out enough pastry to line and cover it. Pour the filling and add the top.
Cut two small holes in the top and brush with a beaten egg.

Before cooking
Cook at 200&C for about 30 minutes or until the pastry is browned.

That's it. A tasty pie for a hungry chap. No, I didn't eat it all in one go.
