Pie Odyssey #5: Chicken, Leek and Ham

I like chicken pies and so does Miss5. DH tolerates them. Mr8 thinks they are a bit on the"wrong" side but he eats it up without too much complaint.. he does tend to prefer the Mince thing.

I used bacon because I didn't have ham and bacon make everything better.

Added it to the leek, onion and garlic mixture.

Mixed in some white wine and basically a white sauce... the recipe called for cream but I used milk.

Pastry was straight forward to make but I didn't have time to chill it which would have improved my pie's look!  It is a very short pastry and the day was hot and humid.  Not good pastry making weather.  So it looks like a bit of a dog's breakfast. 

Tasted good none the less.
