Rogan Josh Chicken and Potato Pies- Honey and Soy Salad Dressing


What I love about pies is how can you convert leftovers into something that looks and tastes like it takes hours to do. I had a jar of Rogan Josh sauce in the fridge with the intention of finishing it up before it goes bad. Given that I still have a few pieces of puff pastry in the freezer, some potato and chicken, it didn't take me long to figure out a pie will do the trick!

I probably overdid the potato though..and that would have tasted better with a stronger sauce. Nevertheless, it was one easy meal that was freezer friendly. Perfect for the hubby to take to work for a snack or light lunch.



I have also recently discovered how easy it is to make honey and soy salad dressing! DOH! Although I would have never put those two together, I was quite curious to why the Aussies love having that on their salads. So I decided to experiment and the result was actually quite good... surprisingly! A tsp of sesame oil and sesame seeds add that crunch and texture.

Rogan Josh Chicken and Potato Pies- Honey and Soy Salad Dressing (around 12-13 pies)
4 puff pastry defrosted
300 grams of chicken breast thinly sliced diced
1/2 jar of sauce
2 potatoes diced finely -cook briefly in boiling water till just done.
1 onion chopped finely

Cook onion till nearly done and add chicken. Add sauce. Taste. Add potato and simmer for around 15 minutes. Add some pepper if needed. Cool.

Cut pastry to shape. Spoon filling into pastry as per pie maker instructions. Cook till the machine says it is done! =) Or just wrap the filling into the pastry and bake in 180C for around 25 mins in the oven.


Honey Soy Sesame Dressing
4 tablespoon of soya
1 tsp of honey
1 tsp of sesame seeds(I ran out when making it for this salad!)
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1tsp of sesame oil

Whisk all together. Serve with your favorite salad.
