I need to start by prepping my ingredients. I first finely chop my onion…

I love to listen to music whilst in the kichen… on my playlist today is Calvin Harris – Summer

3:05pm

My onion is chopped

I next need to chop my chicken, I start by removing all the fat, and cutting into bite sized pieces…

3:13pm

My chicken is chopped

Music was One Direction – Steal my girl

3:15pm

Next step is to cut the streaky bacon, into small pieces…

3:16pm

Once you’ve cut the streaky bacon, add to a flat bottomed pan, with a tablespoon of oil and fry on a medium heat until crispy…

3:24pm

My bacon is cooked, so i’ve transferred it to a plate lined with kitchen roll to soak up any excess oil

Music – Selena Gomez – Same old love

3:34pm

Next step, is to add the chicken thighs to the pan, and allow to brown on all sides…

Remember to add a pinch of black pepper, you don’t need any salt and the bacon is very salty…

3:38pm

Music – Jess Glynne – Don’t be so hard on yourself

3:41pm

My chicken is browned on all sides, so I add my 2 tbsp of plain flour and stir, so it soaks up all the oils and juices. I then add my chicken stock and milk, and stir thoroughly

Music – Taylor Swift – Style.

Not to worry, these go in at the end…

3:51pm

Remember to stir the mixture every so often, otherwise it will stick…

4:08pm

My mixture is nearly there, I now need to add my streaky bacon back to the pan, and my petit pois…

Turn off the heat and transfer to your pie dish, and leave to cool…

I’ll see you all at 6pm, for the next step…

6pm

Welcome back everyone, the first step is switch your oven on to 200ºc…

I use ready rolled puff pastry, its so much easier, than making your own, this is one of few ready made ingredients which I actually buy. Making your own is such a fuss!

6:05pm

Crack your egg in a bowl and give it a good whisk.

Place your puff pastry over your pie mixture, and trim off any excess…

6:08pm

make 3 slits in the pastry, to allow for steam to escape. Using a pastry brush. Brush the egg over the puff pastry.

Once the oven has been pre-heated, place the pie in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the top is crispy.
