Recipe: Mini chicken & vegetable pies
These tasty little minced chicken and veg pies are nutritious, easy to make, and can be cooked in advance and frozen for another day – perfect when you've got 101 plates to spin.
Boil the potatoes until tender, drain and mash with the 25g butter, milk and cheese.
Melt the 15g butter in a pan, add the leeks and chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes to brown the mince. Add the pepper, carrot, stock and herbs. Reduce the heat and simmer with the lid on for 8-10 minutes.
Divide the mixture between 4 ramekin dishes and top with the mash, then place under a preheated grill until golden brown.
