Warming Chicken, Leek & Sweet Potato Pie

In honour of British Pie Week, we teamed up with Jus-Rol to create a dinner perfect for these cold evenings (Spring, where are you??). It is delicious, straightforward, and with the help of Jus-Rol (all of the yummy pie crust with none of the hassle of creating it yourself!) it's ready on the table in less than an hour including baking time!

 Also if you have a dog, she will be very envious!

Sarah had a long day in London, so I thought I'd treat her to one of her favourite dishes - my girl loves a pie. We have been obsessed with sweet potato lately, so I had to include that, and I knew she'd love it even more if it had chicken in it, as we are eating vegan during the week at the moment, it was a real treat for her!

I made sure to decorate with pie crust hearts - the way to the heart is through the belly!
It smelled amazing, so she was excited from when she walked in the door - and it was so good that she tried to tempt me into giving her the second portion - I resisted so she could enjoy it again today!

Something tells me I'll be making this again soon, and maybe experimenting with other pie fillings, always with Jus-Rol of course!

Please let us know if you give this recipe a go - I'd love to hear how it turns out!

*Disclaimer - Jus-Rol sent us a voucher to enjoy some of their products, however as a loyal product user I requested them, and all opinions in this post are completely my own.

  2. This looks amazing...I was looking for something to cook for dinner today!

  3. Yum! This looks awesome! Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. British Pie Week? Why, oh why, do I live in America, where we only have a DAY!

  5. I won't claim that my wife and I made this tonight-- more it was just our inspiration. But it was approximately similar, if you'll allow that. Last night we'd tried an empanada recipe from a South American cookbook she'd picked up at a library sale. There was some leftover crust that that was way too rich in butter and cream cheese (sounds yummy, but very hard to work with). It looked like a candidate for some rework for a pot pie crust. We had some chicken breast meat from a rotisserie chicken from one of the local markets. My wife doesn't care much for sweet potatoes, but carrots provided a colorful substitute. We had some leeks, and there was corn in the freezer from some leftover ears that I'd cut down a while back. We had homemade chicken stock and whipping cream, so we were good to go. We further modified your approach by adding 2 or 3 tablespoons of grated Pecorino Romano as a thickener and for the flavor, and including a few mushrooms leftover from another recipe.

    The result was quite tasty. Thank you for the inspiration.


    [I came across your recipe because of a comment you had made on Casey (the College Celiac)'s blog, which I'd followed to your website. And this recipe fit because of stuff we had on hand. Serendipity.]

    1. Hi Dick, we're so pleased that the recipe came in useful. Your version sounds delicious too. Thanks for letting us know :)
