havent got one myself but,
have you tried the bbc recipe finder? i always find that quite good.

I normally just make a simple while/roux sauce them add diced checken but i only ever do a pasty top not whole pie x

1 small ]chicken , roasted
25g butter
2 bunches of ]spring onions , finely sliced, dark green ends discarded
150g chestnut mushrooms or button mushrooms, quartered
150g shiitake mushrooms (or more chestnut mushrooms), halved
1 tbsp ]flour
250ml milk
142ml carton double cream
2 tbsp chopped ]tarragon leaves
500g pack of puff pastry (use butter puff or brush ordinary puff with a little butter before you use it)
1 ]egg , beaten
Method
[LIST=1]
[*]Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Tear the chicken fl esh from the bone in large chunks and discard the skin and bone. Heat the butter in a large pan and add the spring onions.
[*]Cook for a few minutes until softened. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or so, until lightly coloured. Stir in the fl our, and cook for another minute, then gradually add the milk. Add the cream, simmer until the sauce thickens. Stir in the chicken and tarragon.
[*]Roll out the pastry to the thickness of a 20p and cut 4 circles big enough to cover 4 small pie dishes. Divide the chicken mixture between the dishes and brush the rims with beaten egg.
[*]Lift the pastry on to the pies, trimming off any excess. Press down and crimp the edges with a fork. Cut a couple of slits in the pastry to let the steam out and brush all over with the rest of the egg. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pastry is crisp and golden brown.[/LIST]
if you don't want to roast a chicken, use raw breast fillets and cook slowly before adding spring onions. and if you want to make a larger pie, put it in a larger dish and don't cut the pastry so small.

I really find a chicken,sweetcorn, white sauce and seasoning great with gravy and veg. I have short crust pastry top and bottom though

Try using tin of campbells condensed chicken or mushroom soup - so much easier. Then add sweetcorn, peas, carrots etc.

+1

But I'd add in extra chunks of chicken and the shrooms.

Yum yum

And they do a low fat version of the soup that is just as nice
