It's back to school this week for all 3 girls after half term week. I've got a busy week with Parent Consultations at school, a trip to Leeds and back in the same day, my usual work shifts and school governor meetings too.
Low faff is the theme for this week. My 3 girls will be having school dinners, much to their dismay, as I am trying to keep everything as simple as possible to save my sanity.
Breakfasts will be cereal (wheat biscuits) with warm milk and a piece of fruit for afters or porridge with homemade fruit compote.
Weekend Lunches will be Allotment Picnic Slice.

350g leftover cooked chicken, cut into small chunks or shredded

Put all the filling ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined then season to taste. Pour into pie dish then cover with the pastry to form a lid. Brush the pastry with a little milk to glaze and make a couple of small vents in the pasty to let steam escape. Bake for 30 minutes until the pastry is puffed up and golden.
