¼ cup plain flour
4 chicken thighs, diced

Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken in batches and fry until golden then remove from pan and set aside to cool. Repeat with the bacon.

Add the butter to the pan then add the leeks and cook for 7-8 minutes until softened. Add the flour and cook for a further 2 minutes then add the chicken stock and stir to combine. Finally add the milk, thyme and seasoning. Cook the sauce for a further 5 minutes then add the reserved chicken and bacon and warm through. Place in a medium sized oven dish or individual dishes.
