This is my own adaptation of Gervase Markham’s Chicken Pye (1615), and Mrs Anne Blencowe’s Little Chicken Pye (1694) to a recipe which is easy to make with ingredients available today. It is in the tradition of the great feast day pies, which were treasure chests of different delicacies. It serves 8–10 and requires two rather large pie dishes.
