Recipe's preparation


    In Thermomix bowl, combine garlic, ginger and dried chilli and chop 3secs/speed 3


  2. Scrape down sides of bowl and add rice wine, soy sauce and sesame oil


  3. Add cornflour to a little water and mix with a fork to form a smooth paste. Add cornflour mix and chicken to bowl and mix speed 2/Counter-clockwise operation/3 secs. Transfer mixture into separate bowl and put in the fridge to marinate for 30 mins


  4. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the Thermomix bowl and add chicken mixture. Cook for 10 mins/speed 1/Counter-clockwise operation120 degrees


  5. Once cooked add dark soy, water chestnuts, peanuts, spring onion and capsicum and cook for a further 10 mins/speed 1/ Counter-clockwise operation/100 degrees. Ensure that chicken is cooked.


  6. Let chicken cool down and preheat oven to 180 dgrees. Cut 12 x 2 different sized round discs out of your pastry. One for the base (this should be big enough to cover the inside of a muffin tin ) and one for the top. I used 2 different sized cookie cutters to make it easier


  7. Using melted butter, oil the muffin pan well. Place the bigger pastry disc in the muffin hole, and gently push down to ensure that the base and walls are lined with pastry. Also ensure that there is a little "overhang" at the top, as this will assist us with securing the lid.


  8. Spoon in cooled chicken mixture and brush top of pastry with a little of the whisked egg. Place lid on top and with a fork gentlly press down edges of pie case so that the lid becomes secure to the base (and wil make a fancy looking crust!) Brush pie lid with a little more butter.


  9. Repeat process until all the pies have been made. Bake in oven for 15 mins or until pastry is golden.

    This was a great pie filling! Loads of flavour and everyone loved it. I didn't have any peanuts, so put cashews in instead.
