This is a great way to use up left-over chicken. These can be made as a large pie, or as smaller individual parcels. Either way they are delicious.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Pack of sheets of filo pastry
400g chicken or turkey

Method
Preheat the overn to 180 Celsius.

For the sauce
Melt the butter in a saucepan until it just starts to foam.
Add the flour and whisk it in. Cook until it starts to turn a straw colour. Take care that it doesn't burn.

Gently wipe the mushrooms and chop them into slices.
Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Shred the chicken and then add to the pan.

Stir well and then cook a little more until thoroughly heated.
Meanwhile, prepare the parcels.
You can either use one large dish, or some smaller ones. Either way the basic method is the same.
Lay 2 or 3 sheets of filo pastry to line the bottom of the dish. In a large dish I would use a couple more sheets to give the parcel a bit more structure.

Pour in the filling, but take care it doesn't come too high up the edge.

Bring all the edges together and press them together to form a scrunched-up parcel.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden.
