Chicken and Spinach Pasty

Hi All, welcome to the Recipe side of my blog.

As this is my first recipe that I am sharing with you, I thought I would do something easy to prepare.

Ingredients:

  1. Olive Oil
  2. 1 Chicken breast cut into small pieces.
  3. Spinach
  4. Bell Pepper x 1 (chopped into small pieces)
  5. Onion x 1 (chopped)
  6. Garlic Cloves x 2 (Finely chopped)
  7. Ginger (half teaspoon chopped)
  8. Green Chillies x 3
  9. Salt (Half teaspoon)
  10. Pepper 1/4 teaspoon)
  11. Paprika (quarter teaspoon)
  12. Turmeric (1/4 teaspoon)
  13. Garam masala half teaspoon (optional)
  14. Puff Pastry Block
  15. Egg x 1 (whisked in a bowl)
  16. Potatoes x 4 (boiled and mashed) – Also optional.

Method:

  1. In a frying pan, pour 2 tablespoons of Olive oil, and fry the chopped onions, garlic and ginger on medium heat until softened and golden.
  2. Add salt and green chillies.
  3. Add the chicken pieces to the frying pan and cook for 10 mins on medium heat.
  4. Put the chopped Bell Pepper into the pan and continue to cook with the chicken for a further 10 mins.
  5. Add in the Paprika, Turmeric Pepper, Garam Masala and stir for 2 mins.
  6. Once the chicken has fully cooked, add in the spinach leaves, cook for a further 2 mins.

Allow the filling to cool down, once cooled we can move onto rolling the puff pastry.Β 

  1. Cut the Puff Pastry into 4 equal parts, to create 4 large pasties, if you require smaller pasties then cut into smaller parts, such as 6.
  2. Roll out each Puff Pastry into roughly 20cm squares.
  3. Place 2 or 3 spoonfuls of chicken filling onto one side of the pastry.
  4. Add a layer of mashed potato on to the chicken filling. Note that this is an optional step, you can choose not to add potatoes to this recipe.
  5. Brush the puff pastry with the egg, and fold over the side with the filling, be sure to press the edges to securely seal the pasty.
  6. Brush the egg onto the top of the now sealed pasty, doing this will make sure the pasty is golden brown when cooked.
  7. Place in the oven at 200c for 15-20 mins, or until golden brown.

I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe, let me know how yours turned out in the comments section below. Be sure to check out my Instagram for a short clip of this recipe video.
