Happy national pie day everyone :)

Today is national pie day (23 January) a day to celebrate the humble pie. I want to join in this celebration and share my very own chicken pie recipe.

Before I start I have a random fact for you, did you know the first pie was created in 9500 BC by the Egyptians. I wonder what flavour pie was their favourite?

Chicken pie recipe

  • 1 tablespoon on oil
  • 500g chicken mince
  • 1 onion grated
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon crushed green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 packet puff pastry sheet
  • 1 egg

Part 1 – making the pie filling

  1. Heat the oil in a pan, add the mince, water and onions. Allow it to cook on a medium heat stirring frequently to break up the lumps.
  2. Add the green chillies, garlic and salt and cook until it becomes dry. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Once cooled add the mayonnaise and cheese and mix well.

Part 2 – Bringing it all together

  1. Open you pastry sheet flat.
  2. Cut the pastry into squares, I tend to do 6 from a pastry sheet but it depends on how big you want your pies.
  3. Place a few spoonful’s of the filling in the centre of the party square.
  4. Brush the outside edge of with water, fold the pastry square in half and press down the edges. Repeat until you have used all of your filling.
  5. Place the pastries on a baking tray and brush with egg, cook on 180 degrees for 20 minutes or until the become golden brown.

I hope you enjoy these just as much as I do 🙂
