Flower Mini Chicken Pies

Updated on June 27th' 16

Flower shaped, buttery flaky pie crust, filled with creamy cheesy chicken... since they are mini, handheld perfect bite size.

Great for kids parties, picnics, lunch boxes, pot lucks and just on a day! I usually made them in Ramadan for iftaar as well, they are equally popular among kids and adults..
