You can’t beat these delicious chicken and sweetcorn pies, you can make them individually or as one big family sized pie.
Your family will love these easy and delicious pies, they are so simple to make and are packed full of flavour. When my Dad came over one day and tried them he said “This is the best thing you have ever cooked Varn”.
You just fry the onion, garlic and chicken then add the sweetcorn, then mix it all together with some cream to make the most delicious pie filling ever. I like to use muffin tins for the mini pies, they are the perfect size for kids.
I like to make individual pies or mini ones for the kids but this also works so well as a big family sized pie.
These would also be great to take along to a shared lunch or to prepare in advance for work lunches. Also a great recipe to double the filling and freeze for later.
