Chicken Pot Pies

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Cut small circles of pastry using a 12-cm round cookie cutter or bowl. Fit pastry rounds into cups of a muffin pan.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
