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!!)

Cuisine chicken, pies, thermomix
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings 5 pies

Ingredients

  • 2 leeks, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 150 g streaky bacon, roughly chopped
  • 30 g butter
  • 500 g chicken thigh fillets, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 120 g cooking cream (see notes)
  • 30 g water
  • 2 tsp chicken stock powder
  • 2 sheets defrosted puff pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Place the leeks, garlic and bacon into the Thermomix bowl. Chop on Speed 5, 3 seconds. 

  2. Add the butter and saute for 5 minutes, Varoma, Reverse, Speed Soft. 

  3. Add the chopped chicken and cook for a further 5 minutes, Varoma, Reverse, Speed Soft. 

  4. Add the cooking cream, water and chicken stock and cook for 20 minutes, 100 degrees, Reverse, Speed Soft. 

  5. Divide the mixture equally between 5 ramekins (or 1 large casserole dish). 

  6. Cut the puff pastry into long strips and place in a criss cross patterns over the top of the pies (leaving small gaps to allow the steam to escape). 

  7. Brush with the egg and bake in a 200 degree celsius (fan-forced) preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden. 

Recipe Notes

I used Bulla cooking cream in this recipe as it doesn't curdle when cooked. 

If the mixture is too runny for your liking when it's finished cooking in the Thermomix, dissolve 2 tbs cornflour in a little water and mix through on Speed 2, Reverse before diving between the ramekins. 

If you make 1 large pie (rather than individual ones), you'll need to increase the cooking time in the oven to approximately 35 minutes.
