  • Total Wellbeing Diet Garlic and sage chicken with squash and feta salad, recipe, 1 recipe(s)
  • Carrot, 1 medium carrot(s), chopped into 5mm pieces
  • Frozen peas, , 1 cup(s), frozen peas
  • Lemon zest, 1 zest from 1 lemon, finely grated
  • Lemon juice, 1 juice of 1 lemon
  • Filo pastry, uncooked, 4 sheet(s)
  • Olive oil spray, 2 spray(s)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Reheat the chicken mixture in a covered saucepan over low-medium heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a plate, remove the meat from the bone and chop the meat into small chunks. Mash the potato in the saucepan to a chunky mash, then return the chicken to the pan.
  3. Steam or boil the carrots for 3-4 minutes until tender, then drain and add to the chicken mixture, along with the peas, lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix gently to combine, being careful not to break up the chicken.
  4. Spray a 1.5 litre ovenproof dish with cooking oil, then spoon the chicken mixture into the dish. Lay out the filo sheets on a clean work surface and spray with cooking oil. Arrange the filo sheets on top of the chicken, then place the dish in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden and crisp.
  5. Serve the pie with braised beans. 

TIP: Add 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs such as flat-leaf parsley, chives or sage to the chicken mixture before baking. This recipe is great served with the Braised Green Beans with Tomato and Oregano recipe from the Recipes on a Budget recipe book. The recipe for the Garlic and sage chicken can be found in 'The Total Wellbeing Diet Recipes on a Budget' book.
