Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Special equipment: four 8-ounce ramekins

  • Cook the ramen noodles according to package directions. Drain and cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces.

  • Roll out the pie crusts to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Using an 8-ounce ramekin as a guide, cut out 4 circles with an extra 1-inch border of crust all around.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a medium saucepan. Blanch the carrots, peas and leeks separately in the broth until tender and set aside. Reserve the broth.

  • Melt the butter over a medium flame in a saucepan. Add the flour and cook until it begins to smell toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the milk and cream, and whisk until incorporated and smooth. Add the reserved chicken stock and bring to a simmer; season with salt and pepper. Cook the mixture until thickened, and then add the chicken, peas, carrots, leeks, noodles and chives.

  • Divide this mixture among four 8-ounce ramekins, top with the crusts, fold the borders over the sides and cut vents in the tops. Brush with the beaten egg and season with salt.

  • Bake until the pastry is golden and bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
