Directions

1. Melt butter in a large frying pan over moderate heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Add potatoes, onion and carrots and cook, stirring constantly, for a further 7 minutes.
2. Stir in flour, then wine, stock, cream and tomato paste and cook for a further 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a large ovenproof dish.
3. To make topping, sift flour into a medium bowl. Stir in herbs and cheese, rub in butter with fingertips. Make a well in the center, add milk and, using a knife, stir mixture to a soft sticky dough. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead lightly until smooth. Gently press out dough to a 2 cm/3/4 in thickness. Using a scone cutter or small glass, cut out 7 scones and place them on top of the chicken casserole.
4. Bake in moderate oven until scones have well risen and are golden. Serve immediately.
