Product Information



Please keep flat.
Keep in a fridge that's below 5°C. It's at its very best when cooked from fresh.
If you do plan to freeze it, do it on the day you bought it and make sure you eat it within a month, defrosting it fully before cooking.

Prepare & Use

Delicious with steamed seasonal vegetables or a green salad.

Warning: Although we do our very best to take out all the bones, some may remain.
Make sure they're piping hot throughout. These instructions are just a guide; cookers are as quirky as the rest of us.

Oven Cook
1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
2. Remove the film and place the two en croutes with their greaseproof paper on a baking tray. 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. Be careful, they'll be hot.

*Don't worry, they taste just as good without doing this. It just makes them look even better if you want to impress

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

filling and tastes great

These are really filling, plenty of chicken inside and taste great. The sauce is a good flavour that isn't too strong. Great served with carrot mash.

chicken encroute

I had this chicken encroute tonight! I would def recommend it to a friend the only thing I would say is that I found it quite big, so hard to finish. There was plenty of filling and the pastry was well made! Well worth a try!

We tried these and both described it as "claggy" at the same time, very stodgy and overly oily, chicken is tasty and pastry was crisp, but overall very disappointing, wouldn't have this again
