Heart-shaped chicken pies
These cute heart-shaped chicken pies are great for suppers, picnics and lunchboxes


For the filling:

  • 1 cooked chicken
  • 1 packet of cream of mushroom soup
  • a squirt of fresh lemon juice

For the pastry:

  • 1 roll of puff pastry
  • milk to brush over


  1. Break the chicken into small pieces using your hands.
  2. Prepare the cream of mushroom soup but use only half the amount of liquid as instructed on the packet.
  3. Add the chicken to the mixture and season to taste, adding a squirt of fresh lemon is recommended. Remember: the soup already contains a lot of salt, so be careful not to overdo it.
  4. Roll out your puff pastry.
  5. Use two cookie cutters: a large round shape and a heart shape. Create two round shapes for each pie. Scoop a small amount of chicken into the centre of a round of pastry and cover with another round. Paste the heart on top of the pie by using a drop of water.
  6. Paint the top ofthe pie evenly with a little bit of milk so it browns.
  7. Bake for approximately 30 minutes at 180°C.


If you cook the chicken yourself, use some of the stock to prepare the cream of mushroom soup.
