The instruction how to make Chicken and leek pies

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 3 minutes each side or until almost cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Season. Cool and cut into 2cm pieces.
  2. Add leek to pan. Stir for 5 minutes or until soft. Add mushroom and garlic. Stir for 3 minutes or until just cooked. Stir in chicken, cream, mustard and thyme. Cook for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked and sauce has thickened slightly. Transfer to a bowl. Cool. Discard thyme sprigs. Stir in gruyere.
  3. Preheat oven to 220C. Grease twelve 80ml (1/3 cup) muffin pans with oil spray. Use an 8.5cm round pastry cutter to cut 12 discs from shortcrust pastry. Line pans with pastry discs. Prick bases with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden. Remove pastry cases and place on a lined baking tray.
  4. Divide chicken mixture among pastry cases. Use a 7.5cm round pastry cutter to cut 12 discs from the puff pastry. Brush the edges with egg. Place over the chicken mixture, pressing edges to seal. Use a 4cm flower-shaped pastry cutter to cut 12 flowers from remaining puff pastry. Brush with egg and place on the pies. Cut a small slit in the top of the pies. Bake for 10 minutes or until puffed and golden.
