I love a good pie. And so, it seems, does Harry. I served up this chicken pie for dinner and he created a huge mess when he very enthusiastically gobbled it up. He then spent about ten minutes using his fancy new pincer grip to pick up every last morsel.
My little Aussie. Love him.
If you’re not too keen on the pastry idea, try using pita bread as the base or just serving in the ramekins with mashed potato on top.
Tip: Chop the ingredients nice and small so it is easy for your toddler to eat. It is much easier to do the cutting before cooking.Join us on Facebook for other foodie bits and pieces.

Place chicken, flour and paprika in a bowl. Toss to coat. -
Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium. Add leek and bacon and cook for 3 minutes or until leek is soft. Add chicken and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.
