Season with salt and pepper.
Cook the chicken until golden, then add the garlic and parsley.
Pour in the white and boil until it reduces by half.
Add the double cream and simmer for 10-15 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken and reduce.
Add the capers, oregano and tarragon.
Leave the mixture to cool while you make the pastry
Run the flour and butter together in a mixing bowl until you form a crumble texture.
Add the cold water a little at a time until you form a soft ball of dough.
Transfer the pastry to a clean work top and knead for 30 seconds.
Leave the pastry to rest for 10 minutes before rolling out and lining a pie tin.
Spoon the chicken mixture into the lined pie tin.
In a separate bowl mix together the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese with a tablespoon of olive oil, then scatter over the top of the chicken pie filling.
Trim the edges of the pastry and bake in a pre heated oven 170c for 30 minutes or until the top os golden and the pastry is crisp.
