Clever Tricks, Tips and Hints …

  • Try to pick up a barbecue chicken just before the supermarkets close when they are marked down in price.  Remove the meat from the bones, shred and then place in a ziplock bag in the freezer ready to go for this recipe.  You can then use it on a night when you need a meal on the table super quick.
  • This dish is quite mild, however, if cooking this meal for younger children, simply reduce or omit the chilli powder.  Alternatively, if you love a spicier dish, increase the amount of chilli powder.

So tell me, are you a fan of curry and do you like it mild or hot?

  1. That’s a lovely chicken curry pie. I love how it’s made from a bar-be-cued chicken as that certainly cuts down the preparation time. This is a wonderful family meal. Although I like it hot, my little guy is no fan of heat and so I’m always having to turn down the heat xx

    • Yes Charlie, using a barbecue chicken is a fantastic shortcut and this is such a warm, hearty dish for winter … my kids can’t get enough of these pies! x

  2. Oh man this does look like heaven for ma belly. Going on this weeks meal plan thank you very much :) xx

    • This is one of the easiest and yummiest recipes I make … hope your family loves it as much as we do! x
