one of the things i love about cooking, and which makes me feel incredibly satisfied, is the way that dishes segue into one another and you can avoid wastage by using leftovers creatively.
this chicken pie is the interim dish between the roast chicken pasta we had last weekend (chicken as the connection) and the precursor to the courgette and parma ham tart i made for our packed lunches (pastry as the connection). we’ll be having chicken and noodle miso soup at some point later in the week which takes me back to the chicken again, via the leftover meat and stock which i have frozen.
the pie was delicious. it was all about fridgebottom vegetables, storecupboard items and using things up before they went off. as such there is not a formal recipe, more a narrative of how things came together.
