Melt 10ml butter in a saucepan and fry the onions and green pepper until soft. Remove from the pan.

In the same saucepan, melt the remaining butter. Add the flour and stir to make a roux. Cook for one minute. Stir in the stock powder and remove from the heat. Add 500ml milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly. Return to the heat and stir until thickened.

Remove from the heat, add the chicken, onion and green pepper and stir well. Pour the mixture into a greased ovenproof dish. Cut the pastry to fit and brush with the remaining milk. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown.
