  • 40g butter
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 gloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery, chopped
  • 5 leeks, washed, trimmed and finely sliced

  • 4 sprigs Thyme leaves
  • 50ml white wine
  • 500g leftover chicken, shredded
  • 300ml thick cream
  • 2 puff pastry sheets
  • 1 egg, beaten with a splash of milk


  • Step 1

    Heat butter and oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add onion, garlic, celery and leeks and cook for 8 minutes or until soft and caramalised. Add oregano and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes. 

  • Step 2

    Add chicken and white wine, cook for 3 minutes, add the cream and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from stove and allow to cool. 

  • Step 3

    Split filling between 4 ramekins. Cut puff pastry into circles larger than the diameter of the ramekins to allow it to fold over the rim. Cover each ramekin with the pastry and press with your fingers tips to make it airtight.
