Creamy chicken, leek and ham pie | Had we but world enough and time…I f a roast chicken, golden and glistening with festivity, is a show-stopping stiletto of a dish, the pie that inevitably follows is a comfortable slipper — not as glamorous, perhaps, but infinitely nicer to slip into on a cold January evening. Though it is an ideal send-off for the remainder of the Sunday roast, chicken pie is a dish delicious enough to sacrifice an entire bird for. For all the wonderful flavour in a roast chicken, the cooking process makes a certain dryness inevitable; instead, following Angela Boggiano in Pie , I'd suggest poaching the bird in an aromatic broth, so you get juicy meat and a well-flavoured stock to make the base of the sauce. If you're using leftovers, any surplus gravy will serve the same purpose, though you may have to set this aside in advance before it disappears on to the roast potatoes. Brining the bird before cooking, as Heston Blumenthal suggests , just masks the flavour of the meat — definitely not worth the hassle. Vegetables not only serve to bulk out the dish, but should add a welcome contrast of flavours and texture.
