One large pastie!


A lot of people like pasties, however, I do not like shop bought ones so decided to make my own. I also like mine to be unique shapes and not all uniform.

I have found a local supermarket that sells chicken meat so did not have to use leftovers or strip a bought chicken.

I used fresh carrots and took the corn off the cob, however to save time, you can buy a frozen mixture of peas, carrots and corn. It won't taste quite as nice, but is quicker.

Brush the edges with the egg, and fold over to enclose the filling, pinching the edges together to seal them properly.

I served with just a dob of tomato sauce as all vegetables are already inside, however they would be nice with home made baked chips.
