This Chicken Cabbage Savory Pirog is such a classic. I love to make this Chicken Cabbage Savory Pie about once a month. It always goes down a treat. A pirog is a baked pie which is made from dough, filled with a savory filling. Pirogs are common in Ukrainian and Russian cuisines and can often be found on the table at celebrations.

To make my pirog, start by making dough. Make the cabbage filling by cooking chicken in a skillet. Add onion, cabbage, carrot and garlic and sauté. Add ketchup, sour cream, herbs, and the cooked chicken. To make the pirogs, roll the dough into a circle. Place the filling on the circle and leave space around the edges. Pull the edges into the center over the filling. Seal and flip over the pie so the seam is underneath. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in the oven until golden. Enjoy while warm from the oven.

To make my Chicken Cabbage Savory Pirog, you will need the following ingredients:
