Hey lovelies,

Pies are one of my favourite meals so cook, so much so ive even a section dedicated to pies in my cookbook. This chicken and smoked bacon is full to the brim with a creamy savoury filling, topped off with a crown of puff pastry. Its such an easy dish to put together and once you’ve tried it it will be on the Mealplan every week
