I love anything with chicken mayo so came up with the idea to try it in a braai pie. To give it some zest I added cheddar cheese to the first try and eventually ended up with three cheeses added but the result was just amazing.


  • 4 x chicken fillets
  • 2 x table spoons cooking oil
  • Ina Paarman chicken spice
  • 1 x Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 x Cup Grated Emmenthal Cheese (German)
  • 1 x Cup Grated Smoked Gouda Cheese (Kasselshoop)
  • Nola Ultra Creamy Mayonnaise
  • 2 x rolls puff pastry
  • 1 x egg beaten


  1. Spice the fillets with the chicken spice.
  2. Cook the chicken fillets in a pan on medium heat until golden brown and done.
  3. Let the fillets cool down and then pull them using two forks.
  1. In the meantime prepare your fire with medium to cold coals.
  2. Clean your grid and make sure it is cold. You can spray it with Cook & Spray to prevent the pie sticking to it.
  3. Add the pulled chicken to a large bowl and add enough mayonnaise so that once cooked the chicken will not be dry inside the pie.
  4. Add the three cheeses and mix the cheese in well.
  5. Roll out the one pastry roll on a table with the plastic wrap on the bottom
  6. Spread out the chicken mayo cheese mix over the pastry leaving some space on the edges.
  7. Now roll out the other pastry roll over the chicken and close up the edges with a fork to form a pie.
  1. Using a brush cover the top of the pie with the beaten egg.
  2. Now pic up the pie by using the plastic gently and place it in the braai grid bottom section.
  3. Close the braai grid gently but do not compress the pie.
  4. Quickly turn the braai grid over, remove the plastic and brush with the beaten remaining beaten egg.
  5. Quickly turn the braai grid back and place on the coals.
  6. Braai both sides until golden brown.
  7. Service with a nice avocado feta salad.
