Asparagus and Chicken Pie
Asparagus and Chicken Pie
Method
  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the water and yeast.
  • Whisk by hand, until the yeast is completely dissolved.
  • Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil, the egg, yogurt, flour and salt.
  • Beat with the hook attachment until the dough comes together, becomes soft and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • When ready, allow the dough to rest for ½ an hour.
  • Break off the tough, wood-like ends of the asparagus with your hands that is inedible. About 2-3 cm. Then use a vegetable peeler to peel off the rest of the stalk.
  • Chop into 2-3 cm pieces.
  • Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic.
  • Place a pan over medium to high heat and add the olive oil.
  • Add the asparagus, onion and garlic. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  • When ready, transfer to a bowl and allow the mixture to cool for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, add the gruyere, finely chopped chicken, salt, pepper, the sautéed asparagus mixture, thyme, basil and cream cheese.
  • Mix with a wooden spoon until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Brush a 30 cm round baking pan with olive oil.
  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • Divide the dough into 2 pieces. One piece should be larger than the other.
  • Roll out the larger piece into to a thin sheet that is large enough to cover the bottom and sides of the baking pan. Use more flour to help you roll it out easier.
  • Fit it into the bottom and sides of the pan and add the filling over it. Spread it evenly and smooth the surface with a fork.
  • Roll out the second piece of dough to a thin sheet, dusting with flour to help you roll it out easier.
  • Place over the filling and pinch the edges to seal and create a pretty border.
  • Drizzle the surface with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, until the phyllo is nice and golden.
