Method
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.

  • Knead gently on a floured board then wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  • Heat oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/425°F/gas 7.
  • Heat the oil and add the bacon and onion, cook for 4 minutes.
  • Add the sweet potato, turn up the heat and fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crisp and the potato just underdone.
  • Add the thyme and chicken.
  • Leave to cool slightly. 
  • Unroll the pastry and with a rolling pin, roll out until it's large enough to cut out 4 circles of pastry, using a large saucer or a side plate as a guide.
  • Discard the trimmings.
  • Lift the circles onto a baking sheet.
