Chicken Stock Powder(ContainsCelery)
Preheat your oven to 220°C and bring a large saucepan of water tot the boil with a pinch of salt for the potatoes. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. When hot, add the diced chicken and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden all over, 6-8 mins.
Meanwhile, chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Add both to the pan of boiling water and cook until you can easily slip a knife through them, 10-12 mins. When cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan, off the heat.
Trim the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Halve lengthways then thinly slice widthways. Stir into the chicken. Pick the sage leaves from their stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks). Add to the pan, along with the water (see ingredients for amount) and stock powder. Stir to dissolve the stock powder then bring to the boil, lower the heat and simmer until reduced by half, 5-8 mins. Trim the green beans.
Stir the apple and sage jelly and crème fraîche into the chicken. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle. Bring to the boil then remove the pan from the heat. Pour the mixture into an ovenproof dish and set aside. Mash the potato with a potato masher, adding a knob of butter if you have any. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Spread the mash over the chicken filling. Grate the cheddar cheese over the top then bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden and bubbly, 10-15 mins. Meanwhile, rinse and refill the potato pan with water and bring to the boil. Add the green beans to the boiling water and cook until just tender, 5-7 mins. Drain in the colander and return to the pan, with the lid on, to keep warm.
Serve the creamy chicken and leek pie with some green beans alongside. Enjoy!
