For the Filling:

  • 300 g boneless chicken breast or thigh diced
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons water

For the Pie Crust:

  • 300 g all-purpose flour
  • 150 g unsalted butter chilled and cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 egg beaten (for egg wash)


Prepare the Pie Dough:

  • In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt. Add the chilled, cubed butter and rub it into the flour using your fingers until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Gradually add cold water, mixing until a dough forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Cook the Filling:

  • Heat vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté onion, garlic, and carrot until softened.
  • Add the diced chicken and cook until no longer pink.
  • Stir in soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, and sugar. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the frozen peas and the cornstarch slurry. Cook until the filling thickens. Set aside to cool.

Assemble the Pies:

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).
  • Roll out the pie dough on a floured surface to about 5mm thickness.
  • Cut out rounds using a pie mold or a small bowl. Place some filling in the center of each round.
  • Cover with another round of dough. Press the edges to seal and crimp with a fork.
  • Brush the tops of the pies with beaten egg.


  • Place the pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.


  • Let the pies cool slightly before serving. They can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.
