1. Peel and chop the potatoes and carrot, place in a pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Cook until the veg have softened then remove from the heat.

2. While the veg is cooking, in a separate pan place the leek, roughly chopped, chopped chicken thighs, chicken stock and tarragon. Place on a low heat and cook until the chicken is cooked through.

3. Once the chicken is cooked, add in the canned ham, chopped into small chunks, mustard powder and grated cheddar cheese. Keep on the heat and stir until the cheese has melted. Thicken with the cornflour then remove from the heat and stir through the fromage frais.

4. Pour the chicken mix into 2 small pie dishes and set aside.

5. Drain the water from the potato and carrot and mash with fromage frais and tarragon.

6. Spoon the potato and carrot mash on top of the pies and spread over, place the pies under a grill to brown the top.
