Origin and History of Chicken Pies

The origin of chicken pies, similar to its other counterparts, stems from the United Kingdom, dating back to the Renaissance. However, unlike other pies, chicken pies may actually date back to the Ancient Egyptians - thanks to carvings on a tablet that were found and dated back 2000 years old!

Overview of Chicken Pie Varieties

Delicious pies come in all shapes, sizes and flavours - and the chicken pie is no different. Chicken as the base, there are various ingredients, flavours and sauces that can be added to the chicken pie, such as:

  • Chicken and bacon
  • Chicken, leek and ham
  • Chicken and mushroom
  • Chicken curry, and much more!

Benefits of Eating Chicken Pies

Chicken pies can provide significant benefits, whether for their excellent taste, convenience or nutritional value - chicken pies offer a well-rounded meal every time. Packed full of protein, iron and other essential nutrients, full of flavour and quick and easy to heat up every time, eating chicken pies provides an excellent way to ensure you get simple goodness in every bite.

How to Choose the Best Chicken Pies

The key to ensuring you enjoy every bite of your chicken pie is in the selection of the pie itself. Therefore, it is critical to choose the best chicken pies every time, which provide fantastic flavour and plenty of nutrients from your pie, by looking at the quality of ingredients and pastry quality: 

Quality of Ingredients

Choosing a chicken pie that is made with high-quality, traceable ingredients is a vital part of selecting the best chicken pies. Local butchers or chicken that is easily traced is a great way to ensure that the ingredients are of good quality and will offer plenty of flavours and nutritional value.

Pastry Quality

Often overlooked, the quality of the pastry used in the chicken pie plays a massive role in the overall taste and appearance. Low-quality pastry that has not been made correctly can often result in a soggy pie bottom or uncooked pastry throughout the pie.

How to Store Chicken Pies

Proper storage of your chicken pies is essential for keeping them fresh and ensuring you get the most out of every pie. However, the best way to store your chicken pie will largely depend on whether it is fresh or frozen and when you intend to eat it!

Short-term Storage

Similarly to other pies, chicken pies are typically put into short-term storage when they are bought fresh and intended to be eaten soon. Chicken pies can generally stage in the fridge for up to 4 days, but it is always advised to follow the producer's instructions.

Long-term Storage

Long-term storage refers to freezing, whether that be a chicken pie that is bought frozen or a fresh pie you are freezing. Long-term storage is generally used to extend the life of the pie and can be used for up to 3 months.

Reheating Options

Reheating your chicken pie is super simple! If it is frozen, it will need to be defrosted and is generally best placed inside the oven and covered with foil. Fresh pie can be microwaved or toasted to reheat it!

How to Serve Chicken Pies

Chicken pies would are generally favoured as a lunch or dinner meal. However, thanks to their rich flavour and nutritional value, chicken pies can be enjoyed as a well-balanced meal entirely on their own. Alternatively, you can pair chicken pies with potato chips, vegetables, potatoes - or any other side you like!

Our Favourite Pick

Mud Foods offers the best selection of chicken pies, with a pie for everyone! Our personal favourite and a popular customer choice is the chicken, ham and leek pie which also boasts a silver award from the British pie awards 2021.
