Chicken & veg pie


My family love pies and I like to fill them up with loads of veg . Perfect hot or cold and made into small individual portions for a picnic or packed lunch.

  • 500g short crust pastry
  • 500 g minced chicken or chopped chicken breast
  • mixed veg I used carrots,peas, finely chopped potatoes
  • fresh or frozen thawed spinach
  • 2 large onions chopped
  • 1 tin tomato pulp
  • seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 beaten egg & sesame seeds

In a big saucepan fry the onions in some oil add the mixed spice ,When onions are soft add the chicken and fry til cooked ,add the veg and tomato pulp & seasoning and simmer uncovered til it thickens .Take off heat and let it cool a bit.

Roll out pastry and cover a greased oven dish. Fill with the chicken & veg mix . Roll out pastry to make the top . Brush with the egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds . Bake in 180C oven until pastry is golden.
