Our Thermomix Chicken & Leek Pies are the perfect family dinner! Serve with mashed potato and steamed vegetables for an easy midweek meal.
When the weather cools down, it's all about the pies in our house! And these Thermomix Chicken & Leek Pies are always a massive hit.
The creamy filling is packed with leek, bacon and chunks of chicken, while the crispy pastry tops it off perfectly. You can absolutely make your own pastry in the Thermomix instead, but I like to use puff pastry when I'm making these Thermomix Chicken, Bacon & Leek Pies during the week (think... a quick and easy dinner!!)
So if you're after a family-friendly (and even toddler-approved!) dinner, then these Thermomix Chicken & Leek Pies are definitely for you!

Hi Lauren, can i use cooconut cream instead of cooking cream for this recipe?
Yes you can!
Adding the cornflour is a must otherwise the recipe would be too runny!
So glad you liked them!
So good. Made this into individual pies. Used a bit more of the cornflour than the recipe says to thicken so they were not too runny. Absolutely delicious ?.
Jane W says
Absolutely divine in terms of taste, but even with the corn flour was too runny sadly ?
What do you mean by ‘speed soft’ please?
Lauren Matheson says
Hi Monica, it's also the stirring speed on TM 5 and TM6 🙂
This looks and sounds delicious. I really like Leel Pies for easy weeknight dinners.
