“Chicken pie” from “How to Eat”

Kirstin: You know when you’ve made a recipe for so many years, it becomes a thing of its own. This is that recipe. I’ve been making it for 13 years. I know that because I was pregnant with Miles when I first started making it. And I know all my shortcuts too. The recipe place is held with ribbon in the book. I don’t make the pastry. I use frozen peas. I often buy the cooked chicken rather than making my own. Sometimes I make the white sauce the way Nigella says. Sometimes I make it my own way. But back in the noughties when pies were a thing, I made this many, many times. I even had smaller individual pie dishes for our children. And it’s still a winner. Miles and I managed to share one pie and then he moved onto the other pie.

I must try and remember to make it more often. Because pies are always so satisfying to make.
