Chicken and Ham Sandwich Pies

These are the coolest things ever and also the yummiest. These are just absolutely brilliant if you want a sandwich but don't have time to make one, make a whole batch in advance then freeze them and then you can just pull one out when you need it. They are seriously good and such a brilliant way to make a sandwich!

Chicken and Ham Sandwich Pies (from Good Food Magazine July 2011)
(Makes 10)

2 cooked chicken breasts, chopped
100g thick sliced ham, chopped
6 spring onions, finely chopped
100g strong cheddar, grated
3 tbsp full fat soft cheese
2 tsp English mustard
500g pack bread mix
plain flour for dusting
1 egg, beaten

Make the filling by mixing the chicken, ham, spring onion, cheeses and mustard with some seasoning, stir well to combine, then pop in the fridge until later. You can do this up to a day ahead.

Make the bread mix following pack instructions. Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces, shape into balls then roll out on a floured surface into circles 12cm in diameter.

Heat the oven to 200C. Grease 10 holes of a muffin tin. Put a dough circle into one of the holes, push in lightly, then fill with 2 tbsp of the filling mix. Gather the dough together with your fingers and pinch to create a little parcel that looks a bit like a big flower – don’t worry about totally sealing the dough as the filling will bubble through anyway, which makes the parcels look even better. Keep doing this until you have used all the dough and filling mix.

Brush the parcels with beaten egg and cook for 25-30 mins until golden and risen.Serve with a spoonful of your favourite chutney, if you like.


  1. If freezing these do you freeze before or after cooking?

    1. I freeze them after cooking so that they are just ready to grab and go.

  2. Those look really good Nicola! I may give them a go!
