Chicken, mushroom and spinach pie


Chicken, mushroom and spinach pie


4 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 pack button mushrooms, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 tsp salt
Large bunch of fresh baby spinach
3 cups diced cooked chicken
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 chicken stock cube, dissolved in cup of water
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp coarsely chopped rosemary
8 sheets phyllo dough



1. Heat oven to 200°C. In large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, melt 1 tbsp butter and olive oil, then add onions. Cook, stirring until just soft, about 4 min. Add mushrooms and 1/2 tsp salt and continue stirring until softened, about 4 min. Gradually add spinach and stir until completely wilted, about 2 min. Transfer to a large bowl and add chicken; wipe skillet clean.

2. Whisk together flour, chicken stock, lemon juice and 1/2 tsp salt and add to the same pan over medium-high heat. Whisk until mixture is boiling and simmer until just thick, about 2 min. Add to chicken mixture with 1/2 tbsp rosemary, then transfer to a baking dish.

3. Melt 3 tbsp butter and brush onto each phyllo sheet, layering one on top of the other. Gently place over baking dish and crimp the sides to fit. Sprinkle with remaining rosemary and bake until golden, 25 to 30 min.

Let cool slightly before serving.

Makes 6 servings.
