Chicken & mushroom pot pies with steamed greens and baby potatoes

50 minutes (15 minutes plus cooling time )
Serves 4
  • Spray olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 400g lean chicken breast, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 2 small leeks, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 300g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup wholemeal plain flour
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced fat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 4 sheets Filo Pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 8 baby potatoes
  • 2 bunches broccolini, trimmed
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Spray 4 medium sized ramekins or oven dishes with olive oil.
  2. Place a medium heavy based pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the chicken and cook for 10-12 minutes or until cooked. Remove meat from the pot and set aside.
  3. Add remaining olive oil to the pan and saute leeks, garlic and mushrooms for 5-6 minutes, or until just softened. Add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the milk and black pepper and cook for a further 4-5 minutes or until thickened. Return the chicken to the pot and stir to combine. Refrigerate mixture until cooled completely. Meanwhile, bring a medium sized pot of water to the boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, approximately 15 minutes, drain.
  4. Bring a small pan of water to the boil. Add the broccolini and simmer for 4 minutes until tender. Drain.
  5. Once chicken mixture has cooled, divide chicken mixture between ramekins/oven dishes. Roughly press down 1 piece of filo on top of every ramekin and brush with egg.
  6. Bake for 20 minute or until golden. Serve with steamed greens and potatoes.
