Product Information



Charlie Bigham's


Keep Flat; Keep Refrigerated; Cannot be Microwaved


Oven cook - From Chilled. This recipe is made with raw ingredients and isn't suitable for microwaving, so please follow these cooking instructions carefully.
1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
2. Remove the film, then lift the two en croutes out of their wooden tray and place on a baking tray, together with the greaseproof paper. For best results, brush the pastry with milk or whisked egg*.
3. Place in the centre of the oven and cook for 25 minutes until the pastry turns golden brown.
4. Leave to stand for 2 minutes before serving.
Make sure they're piping hot throughout.
*Don't worry, they taste just as good without doing this.
It just makes them look even better if you want to impress!

Smaller size, same price

These used to be my favourite Chicken pie, that was until they reduced the size by at least 30% but kept the price the same. What a rip off! How an earth do you think you can make a product substantially smaller and still charge a premium price. Such a shame.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


Quick and easy and delicious, better than expected

Rating: 3 star out of 5

very soggy bottom

Tastes ok was expecting better flavour but the pastry was so soggy that couldn't eat most of it (cooked for correct time)

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Soggy bottom!

Tasty enough, and good quality chicken, but had a very soggy bottom. Cooked it for the time specified. Perhaps we needed to cook it for longer. Not sure I would order again. Not as good as other dishes we have tried from the range.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


Probably the best 'ready meal' we've ever had. Tasty and love the fact that there are no preservatives or artificial flavour in it. Hopefully they'll do an organic version
