  3. Cook until the onions are translucent or carrots are tender.

  4. Stir in tapioca flour to coat all the veggies and mix for a few minutes to combine

  5. Slowly add the chicken broth, small amounts at a time to avoid clumping. Once it's all smooth, add dairy free milk and stir.

  6. Add the diced chicken pieces and simmer on a low to medium heat until the mixture turns thick. (the thicker the better) Add salt to taste.

  7. Set aside to cool right down.

  9. Pour in chicken filling and cover with second sheet of pastry.

  10. Seal the edges and cut away any excess dough. Spray the top of the pie with more oil spray or brush with egg.

  11. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.

  12. Bake for 30-40mins or until crust is golden brown.

  13. Remove from oven and let cool for 10mins before serving
