Mini Chicken Mushrooms and Sweet Corn Pies

Makes 24 mini pies

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small brown onion, peeled and chopped finely
1 garlic glove, crushed
400g chopped cooked chicken (I prefer to use barbequed chicken for this recipe)
400g can creamed corn
100g button mushrooms, chopped finely
3 sheets puff pastry
1 egg, beaten lightly
2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Heat oil in a medium frying pan. Add onions and garlic; stir until the onion is soft. Stir mushrooms, corn and chicken, stir for 1-2 minutes. Take the pan off the heat; leave it to cool down.

Turn the oven to 200C/400F and let it heat up. Line the baking trays with backing paper. Cut 24 10cm rounds from pastry sheets. Spoon chicken mixture into the centers of your rounds, brush the edges with egg, cover with second rounds, and press the edges with a fork to seal the pies. Brush pie tops with egg. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Use a small sharp knife to cut a small slit in the top of each pie.

Put the pies in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Take the pans out of the oven and leave the pies for 5 minutes. Serve warm or cold. This pie could be frozen and used when needed. Enjoy!
