How to Make Creamy Chicken and Leek Pie

  1. For the dough, grab a large bowl and add the flour, butter, egg, sour cream, milk, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Use your hands and mix until you obtain a smooth, golden-colored dough. If it seems too dry, you can add a bit more flour.
    Cover it with plastic foil and refrigerate for the next 20 minutes.
  3. Next heat a skillet over medium heat, add the butter in it and melt it. Add the leek and cook it for 1 minute.
    Add the flour and chicken stock. Season with salt, pepper, and bring to a boil.
    Add the chicken, sour cream, and rosemary. Cook for around 5 minutes, so the mixture thickens.
  4. Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C.
  5. Next, take out the dough, place it on your wooden board and level it with a rolling pin. Slice it in halves vertically.
  6. Lay one half on the bottom of a 10 inches (25 cm) X 4 inches (10 cm) baking dish. Make sure the sides are also covered and slice off the extra dough. Pinch the bottom of the dough with a fork.
  7. Pour the mixture into the pan and cover it with the remaining half of the dough. Brush it with egg wash.
  8. Slide the tray into the oven for the next 45 minutes.
