Ingredients (makes 24 24 party pies)

  • 6 Chicken legs
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Clove of garlic
  • 1 Medium sweet potato, grated
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • 1 Carrot, diced
  • 1/4 cup Plain flour
  • 1/4 Head celery
  • 2 sheets Puff pastry
  • 2 sheets Short crust pastry
  • 1 cup Cream
  • 2tbsp Cornflour to thicken
  • 2tbsp Light soya sauce
  • To taste Salt, pepper, cumin & coriander

Method

  1. Coat chicken legs in flour & fry in a large heavy based pot until half cooked, throw in onion and garlic, cook until it is half done.
  2. Add a cup of water or enough to just cover the chicken, reduce the heat and simmer, add in soy sauce and remaining vegetables except for the celery tops, simmer for approximately 30 minutes on a moderate heat.
  3. Once the vegetables have softened remove the chicken legs and strip the meat from the bone, dice and return to the pot with the celery tops. Season and stir through cream.
  4. Mix the cornflour with a little cold water to form a paste and stir into filling. Remove from the heat and allow to rest.
  5. Line a mini muffin tin with short crust pastry rounds, use a glass with a slightly bigger diameter than the pan hole to make even circles. Fill with filling and top with a round of puff pastry, brush with a little egg wash for golden pastry! Bake in a moderate oven for approximately 20 minutes or until golden!

  • Made these today took them to the hospital for the staff they loved them! A small gesture since they look after my friend so well. I gave them the recipe to make their own in the future.

  • I’d probably switch a couple of ingredients due to likes/dislikes, but overall, a great recipe and chicken is so much more affordable than meat – thanks!

  • These look really cute. Any issues with the bones separating from the meat while its cooking? I always find this with slow cooking?

  • Will give this recipe a go and make a large pie minus the coriander as none of us are a fan of that. Appreciate you sharing this, chicken is affordable so this sort of meal is great to know about.
