Pukka Pie Air Fryer

I bet I am not the only one that hadn’t tried a pukka pie until Jamie Oliver started the craze. The pukka pie always sounded so much better, compared to the cheap supermarket pies, and once we tried them, we were hooked.

But of course, we had already quit the oven when we cooked our first pukka pie, so it was air fried.

Since then, when we have a quick craving for pie, we will get some pukka pies and cook them in the air fryer.

Of course, this pukka pie air fryer recipe is for those in the UK as unfortunately they are not a thing elsewhere, but if you live outside the UK, you can swap a pukka pie for any frozen chicken/meat/vegetarian pies of a similar size.
