We cook free-range chicken thigh fillets with onion, garlic and chorizo before adding smokey paprika, tomato paste and tomatoes. We then simmer until the mixture is soft before adding olives and coriander leaves. After chilling, we pile the whole delicious mixture into circles of our buttery shortcrust pastry, folding in half and crimping to make a crescent-shaped pie.
