A couple of days ago I had visitors for dinner so I decided it was a perfect chance to cross another item off my Summer Ambitions list and make a pie.
However, knowing that my guests were not necessarily huge pastry fans (or at least not to the extent that I am), I rummaged through my pie cookbooks and found a perfect sounding Chicken and Ham Cobbler.
As well as being less pastry based, it was also a lot easier to make - basically making the chicken and ham mixture for the base and a savoury, almost scone-like topping. I didn't have the required casserole dish, but I think my large ceramic did the job. And it was yummy :)
