For the filling

  • 2 tbsp garlic-infused oil
  • 1 tbsp butter use dairy-free alternative if necessary
  • 400 g chicken thighs skinless and boneless, chopped into chunks
  • 1/3 rd of a leek 100g, diced
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 250 ml gluten-free chicken stock
  • 150 ml milk use dairy-free milk if necessary
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp of dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese use dairy-free alternative if necessary

For the mashed potato top:

  • 4-5 medium/large potatoes boiled and drained
  • knob of butter use dairy-free alternative if necessary
  • milk use dairy-free milk if necessary
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • handful of grated cheese use dairy-free cheese if necessary
  • sprinkle of fresh chives


  • Preheat the oven to 200C fan / 220C.
  • Heat an oven proof pan on the hob over a medium heat. Add garlic oil and butter, allow to melt.
  • Add chopped chicken thighs and fry until sealed. Follow this with your chopped leeks and allow to soften.
  • Mix in the cornflour so it coats the chicken and leek.
  • Then add the stock, milk, salt, pepper and thyme. Let it simmer until it starts to nicely thicken into a gravy-like consistency.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in a spoonful of cream cheese to help thicken further and for extra creaminess!
  • Mash your potatoes, I just add some butter, tiny bit of milk, mustard, salt and pepper (do yours however you like!)
  • Top the pie with the mash, sprinkle the cheese over and bake until golden - about 25 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with fresh chives and serve up with veggies and gluten-free gravy.
