Does anyone have a good chicken and asparagus pie recipe?

Preferably without too much dairy in it as DH doesn't like cream/cheese. Also, I am fussy about pastry so would prefer one that is meant to be done with shortcrust pastry.

I couldn't find one I liked, so I made one up and it was fantastic. Now I've got to try to remember what I did and write it down!

No I don't, but reading that title made me want to eat some! I will be watching this thread...

Well this is what I did (I think) and it was really yummy:

Filling:
Melt 25g butter in pan. Add 50g plain flour and mix. Add 250ml chicken stock, whisk and cook through. Add 50ml milk/cream.
In a separate pan I sweated 1 chopped onion and 1 leek. Add 250g chopped chicken and cook through. Add 250g asparagus (I think - forgot to measure it). When all cooked through I added to the sauce.

Then I lined a 25cm tin with shortcrust pastry and blind baked it. Put the filling in and a lid with holes for steam. Baked for 30 mins. I reckon it would feed 4-5.

Definitely going to do it again.
