Crispy Flaky Pastries with a creamy chicken filling. Perfect as a snack or a starter. Ideal addition for parties.

Ingredients for Filling
2 cups
chicken, boiled and shredded
(approx 500 gm)
1
medium onion, chopped finely
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
black pepper
2 tbsp
chopped coriander leaves
2-4
green chilies, chopped
1 tsp
garam masala powder
(all spice)
2 tbsp
flour
2 tbsp
butter
1 cup
milk
(200ml)
Extra Ingredients
Puff pastry
beaten egg or egg white or milk
(for brushing pie tops)
Instructions 

Melt the butter then add the chopped onion. Fry until the onions soften then add the flour, salt, black pepper and garam masala. Stir for 2-3 minutes to cook the flour then add the milk gradually whilst whisking to prevent formation of lumps. Simmer until the sauce thickens, mix in the shredded chicken add chopped green chilies and coriander leaves, remove and cool completely.

The filling will look like THIS.

Allow the filling to cool completely. You can squeeze in a bit of lemon juice for a tangy taste if you like.

When the filling has cooled, roll out squares or circles of ready-made puff pastry to less than a quarter inch thickness, add the filling and shape as desired. Brush the tops with either egg white, beaten egg or milk to give them a golden colour after baking.

Bake on a greased tray in a preheated oven at 170 C for about 25 minutes or until the pastries are golden, puffed and crispy. Serve hot and enjoy!

Assalam aleikum..could you p,ease give me the recipe for the dough?or can I use the dough for the chicken bread??

W/Salaam, I bought pastry to make this dish. You can make it with chicken bread dough but it will not give flaky results. It will be a soft bun texture instead, which is also great. :)

Salam Fauzia

how to seal ready made puff pastry? Also do you have recipe for honey mustard sauce?

Thanks
