Kemi made Chicken Pies and did such a great job at it too, especially for her first attempt! She says:

Well I told u I was gonna make dis today and I jst did! Attached is d pix of d end result. I totally love d way d dough came bt d filling was a lil salty(my fault). I’m nt a curry person but I used it cos I wanted to follow d instruction completely. I used 1 regular potatoes and 2 Irish potatoes, 3 chicken wings, 3milk cups of flour and 9 spoons of Topper baking butter. I made meatpie during d xmas bt not ur method. I was misled in2 using baking powder for d dough and I didn’t rili like d end result. Will make meatpie wit ur method soon and I’ll let u knw d outcome. Thanks for doing this Yetty, I’m so grateful. 

I love that you’re so thrilled with your results, makes my heart smile! I think you did a really great job and I’m not just saying that just to say something nice :) My biggest issue with chicken/meat pies purchased at eateries is that there is usually more dough than filling and I can tell from your photo that is absolutely not the case. Two thumbs up for that hun!

I also see that you didn’t do the oh-so-typical-fork-to-seal-the-edges trick, so that gets a plus in my books. It’s also good that you know where you erred on the saltiness, so you know what to reduce next time you make it. It’s fine to follow the recipe exactly as it appears, but it’s also fine to make adjustments as you see fit.

The chicken pies look golden delicious and most importantly, chuck full of filling which seems to show an equal amount of potatoes to chicken, so yeah girl, you did that, all of it, awesome! Keep me posted on the outcome of the meat pies!

    Hi Yetty,
    WOW!!!!!! thanks a bunch for doing this. I have bin pretty busy (still am) for a while naw dts y i have bin off this page.. Well i will be maing more of this soon but i am curious about something. Is dere a way i can use preservative to preserve the chicken pie in case i make too much and need to preserve it? i reall hate to waste food please. Have a splendid weekend

      Hey Kemi!

      Been busy over here too, hence the lack of updates. You could keep the dough in the fridge for no more than a few days (2-3) at a time and rub some oil over it and the filling you can keep frozen till you’re ready to use it. I wouldn’t keep the filling more than a week to two weeks at a time. I don’t recommend chemical preservatives as they can alter taste and are better suited for large scale productions. If constant electricity is an issue, I’d recommend that you just make small quantities at a time, so you don’t waste any food.

      Hope that helps!

        Kemi/ Yetty, why not just flash freeze the uncooked pies? Place them on a sheet pan or plate, once they freeze, place them in a freezer/ zip loc bag.
        I do that with sausage rolls/ pies. That way you just thaw and bake when that craving gets a hold of your soul.
