Classic Nigerian Chicken Pie Recipe

Ingredients:

– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup cold butter, diced
– 1/2 cup cold water
– 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded
– 1 small onion, chopped
– 1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables
– 1/2 cup chicken broth
– 1/2 tsp curry powder
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Steps:

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour and butter. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
3. Slowly add the cold water, a little at a time, and mix until a dough forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
4. In a skillet, sauté the onions until translucent. Add the shredded chicken, mixed vegetables, chicken broth, curry powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5-7 minutes until heated through.
5. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out circles using a round cookie cutter or a glass.
6. Place a spoonful of the chicken mixture in the center of each circle. Fold the dough over the filling and press the edges to seal.
7. Place the chicken pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush each pie with the beaten egg wash.
8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot and enjoy!
