Spicy Chicken Pasties

My Favourite Snacks

Spicy Chicken Pasties myfavouritepastime.comWe had these pasties a few days ago. They are so easy to make because you only need to make the filling and then buy some puff pastry from your local store. I made twenty but I can assure you they did not see the end of day. They were gone in one sitting. I wish you a pleasant day!

  1. This look sooo delicious! I’m looking for a recipe of yours to post in my new ‘Recipe Roundup’ which I’m doing once a week. This is only my second week and I’m featuring snack recipes for the Super Bowl. But, in the meantime, I’m PINNING this recipe.

    1. Thanks for pinning and sorry I took so long to go through my messages. Let me see the recipe round up. I would like to participate!!!

  2. There is a very similar dish by the same name I want to make for my blog from Michigan and it has chicken and some root vegetables as the filling. I am inspired to make them now. -Kat

  3. Every once in a while I buy a package of that pastry, but then years later . . . I find it in the freezer and toss it. I always think I will do something wonderful (like this!) with it. I must do better.

    Virtual hugs,

  4. These look good Liz! I could go for them. Nice for appies or with salad for lunch? Heck, I’d even enjoy them at dinner! Seems to me I have a couple of packages of puff pastry in my freezer needing something done with them. Thanks Liz!
