Chicken Filo Parcels

Chicken Filo Parcels

Posted 2014-12-13 by Lindsay Lawfollow
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
Makes: 6-8 servings

Ingredients
Pack of sheets of filo pastry
400g chicken or turkey
2 large onions
2 carrots
300g mushrooms
50g butter
50g flour
300-400 ml chicken stock
5-6 tbsp double cream

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.



  • Gradually incorporate the chicken stock into the paste and then add the cream.



  • Remove from the heat until ready to incorporate with the vegetables.

  • For the parcels
  • Chop up the onions and carrots.



  • In a large pan melt some butter, or warm some vegetable oil.
  • Add the onions and carrots and gently sweat until softened.



  • 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.



  • Add the sauce to the chicken and vegetable mixture.



  • 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.
