- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Place a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the olive oil and butter to the pan and heat until the butter melts and starts to foam. Add the leek and onion and fry for 4-5 minutes or until they begin to soften. Add the garlic, mushrooms, bacon and chicken and continue to cook for 5-6 minutes or until the bacon and chicken begins to turn golden. Add the wine and simmer for 2 minutes until the liquid reduces.
- Stir through the mustard and sprinkle over the flour. Stir for 2 minutes, making sure all ingredients are coated. Add the cream, thyme and parsley and then season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, for another 2-3 minutes or until the sauce starts to thicken.
- Spoon the chicken mixture into a pie dish and cover with pastry. Trim any excess pastry, and with the back of a fork, press the pastry against the pie dish to seal.
- Carefully pierce the pastry lid with a small cross in the centre, and lightly brush the pastry with egg. Place into the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
