Yummy wintery pie created using roast dinner leftovers. I make mine with cooked roast chicken and boiled ham. You can make this with any meat leftovers or just roasted veggies too. I find myself roasting a chicken with this savoury pie in mind. If you prefer you can top this pie with thinly sliced potato instead of pastry.
