Chicken Coconut Curry Pies

    1 day 16 hours 20 minutes

    This is a delicious Thai style chicken pie. I always get complements and people can't believe they are home made. This recipe is for individual pies but you can make family pies or even appetiser size pies for parties.

    Yum! Spicy, Tasty, Beautiful aroma. I made as individual pies and froze the 3 leftovers. Came home one night to smell the most wonderful aroma coming from the kitchen. Opened the door and found that my husband had defrosted them and was giving the pies to the kids (3) for dinner. Was devastated that I missed out!!! 😿. Time to make more I think.  -  22 Feb 2015
