Chicken Pie

This is a popular Nigerian snack. This easy homemade chicken pie is the ultimate cozy comfort food.


  • 1.5kg chicken
  • 100g streaky bacon 
  • 100g sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 chopped onions
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • Chopped parsley
  • 1 chopped boiled egg
  • 200g puff pastry (meat pie dough) 
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cut the chicken, remove the bone and cut into pieces
  2. Season lightly with salt and pepper (I use habanero pepper)
  3. Wrap each piece in very thin streaky bacon and place in a pie dish
  4. Add the washed sliced mushrooms and remainder of ingredients, except the pastry
  5. Add sufficient cold stock to barely cover the chicken
  6. Cover with puff pastry (you can use the meat pie dough) and allow to rest in a refrigerator
  7. Egg wash and bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes (I bake till the top is brown)
  8. Reduce the heat to 160-180 degrees and continue to cook for 1 hour (yes it can take a while)
