These are delicious. My 7 year old son went crazy for them. I doubled the recipe and made 12 muffin size ones for lunches plus 1 standard family size pie dish one . I didnt have zucchini or carrot, but had everything else. I used one pack of 500gm chicken thighs and 500gm pack of chicken breasts.
I also baked the shortcrust base first for about 10mins before filling it with the mixture.
