This hearty chicken pie is easy, tasty, and always loved by the kids. A great way to use up leftover BBQ chicken, or simply use chicken pieces instead. Very versatile – try adding different veggies, herbs, or even some curry.

Remove from heat and allow to cool (if it is too hot when placed in the pie shell, you will end up with a soggy base)

While the pie filling is cooling, grease a pie plate and cover base and sides with one sheet of pastry. Fill with filling, then cover with remaining pastry sheet.

Variations

Chicken Pie is so versatile, it really is only limited by your imagination. This is a very basic recipe (and may be considered too bland by some people), so if you want to make it a little more interesting try adding other vegetables, curry powder, or mustard for a little extra flavour. You can also use Filo Pastry instead of Puff.

Kids Help

There are always pastry off cuts when a pie is made. Let the kids make a smiley face on the pie with these offcuts, or they could cut out shapes with cookie cutters to stick on top.

Freezer

This pie is suitable to freeze. Simply cover tightly with alfoil or place in an airtight container. Reheat covered in the oven from frozen (this can take awhile)

Kids Review by 3yr and 5yr old

As you can see, my daughter struggled to eat her veggies this night – however, all the pie is gone!
