Roast Chicken, Leek and Bacon Pie
Place a shallow pan onto a low medium heat and add the butter when it has melted. Add the onion, thyme , salt , pepper and cook with the lid on the pan so the onions sweat. Cook them for 4-5 minutes slowly with no colour, stirring them now and again. Add the leek and bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes slowly still with the lid on the pan. Remove the lid and add the flour and cook out for 1 minute stirring, then add the chicken stock. Bring to a simmer, cook for 2-3 minutes then add the double cream.

Seal the base with the top around the edges by crimping it with a fork or your fingers. Brush on a little egg wash and place into the oven for 35 minutes at 180c.
