3Get a large pot and melt the butter on it. Give and stir the flour into the pot. Then continue to stir with milk or cream. Combine well and add the chicken stock to the mixture. Do not forget to add salt and pepper for seasoning and make it simmer for about 5 minutes.
4Add the chicken mixture and leek mixture to the large pot and combine them all. Cover the pan and simmer on low heat for around 10 – 15 minutes. Next, prepare the pie dish with puff pastry tin and fill the chicken mixture to it and give a layer of puff pastry on the top of it. Another alternative is that you can brush the top with egg rather than cover with puff pastry.
5Prepare the oven and make it heat over 200 celsius-degree and bake the pastry for 15 until 20 minutes or until the pie turns golden brown. After it gets roasted, remove the pie from the oven. You can serve this dish with stewed potato if you want.
