    When Ready to Make the pasties:
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  4. Roll pastry out to be able to cut 4 to 5 7inch circles 1/4-inch thick
  5. On one half of each circle place equal amounts of marinated mix ( no pre
    cooking is required )
  6. filling mixture with even amounts of chicken pieces and sauce.
  7. Carefully lift and fold pastry over filling (half circle); moisten edges of pastry with water & pastry brush. Crimp VERY firmly with a fork (fold them and crimp again — so none of the liquid seeps out)
  8. Transfer each pasty to a large baking sheet (I used two).
  9. With milk or water and bring up sides to meet over the filling.
