Chicken Pie Turnovers
Chicken Pie Turnovers
Method
  • Preheat oven to 180*C (350*F).
  • Place a nonstick pan over high heat and let it get very hot.
  • Put the chicken fillets in a bowl and add some olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir to coat.
  • Add the fillets to the hot pan and brown on both sides.
  • In the meantime, place the herb sprigs on the bottom of a small baking pan that is just large enough to hold the fillets.
  • When the chicken is ready, add the garlic and butter to the pan and let the butter melt.
  • Transfer the fillets to the baking pan, placing them directly over the herbs. In this way, all of the aroma from the herbs will soak in to the chicken while cooking.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, until cooked through.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set them aside to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Chop in to small cubes and transfer to a bowl.
  • Add the cream cheese, mustard, lemon zest, lemon juice, coriander, salt and pepper. Mix until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
  • To prepare the pies, cut each sheet of phyllo (6 sheets) in to 3 pieces along the width and place them one on top of the other.
  • Drizzle the first piece with some olive oil and add a heaping tablespoon of filling.
  • Fold it over on itself to create a triangle.
  • Repeat the same process with the remaining sheets of phyllo dough and filling.
  • Transfer triangular pies to a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, until golden and crunchy.
