1 medium onion, diced 

½ cup corn kernels 

2 rashers bacon, diced 

3 free-range chicken thighs, diced

½ tsp sea salt and ¼ tsp white pepper 

3 big tbsps crème fraiche 

1 sheet store-bought flaky pastry 

Egg wash (optional) 

  1. Heat oven to 180 C.
  2. Heat oil in a medium-sized oven proof pan (no plastic handle!) andsauteonion, corn and bacon until vegetables are softened. Remove from pan and set aside. In same pan, fry chicken until golden brown then add in wine, stock and mustard and simmer for 2 minutes. Add cooked veges/bacon back in and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Stir through crème fraiche. Allow to cool slightly.
