  • About

Chicken pie is popular with both adults and children, so I often made this one in Devon, using local Scrumpy cider and apples from the orchard. I usually prepared it ahead to the stage where I had put the uncooked pastry on top, then kept it in the fridge. So when we came back from a day out, all I needed to do was to glaze the pastry and put the pie in the oven. You don’t really need potatoes, just a green vegetable or a salad.
