Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and prepare a 12-hole average sized muffin pan by greasing it.
  2. In a pan on a medium-high heat put the olive oil. Once warm, add the onion and cook for a few minutes, until translucent. Then add the chicken mince and cook thoroughly. To this add the diced capsicum and cook for a few minutes until warm and starting to soften. Leave off the heat to cool.
  3. In a bowl mix together the eggs and milk, along with half of the cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Defrost pastry on the counter. Using some kind of pastry cutter, which matches or closely matches your muffin pan, cut out circles of pastry and press them into the muffin holes.
  5. Evenly divide the chicken/onion mixture among the pastry-lined muffin holes. Then pour the liquid mixture on top, also dividing it evenly. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until set and golden brown.

Notes

Depending on the size of your muffin pan you may find you'd need more or less liquid. If you have too much, use the rest in an omelette. If you have to little, add another egg and some more milk to pad the mixture out.
