Chicken Pot Pies
- Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and brown onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add chicken, savoury, allspice, cloves, and bay leaf.
- Continue cooking until chicken is golden brown. Add chicken broth and reduce until almost all liquid is evaporated, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Discard bay leaf and let cool.
- Cut small circles of pastry using a 12-cm round cookie cutter or bowl. Fit pastry rounds into cups of a muffin pan.
- Spoon chicken mixture into pastry cups. Cover with a second pastry round and seal, brushing edges with beaten egg then crimp with a fork. Brush pies with remaining egg.
- Bake on lower rack for 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes, remove from muffin pan, and serve with chutney.
