  • 600g skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3 cm cubes
  • 1 ½ cups salt reduced chicken stock (or chicken bone broth)
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced 
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1 small capsicum, deseeded, cut into 1cm pieces

  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). 
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, in batches, for 5 minutes, turning, until browned, then remove from the pan and set aside. 
  3. Add remaining oil, vegetables, cumin, turmeric and chicken back to the pan. Sauté for 2 – 3 minutes, until vegetables have softened. Add stock and cook for a further 3 minutes. 
  4. Mix cornflour and water in a small bowl. Pour slowly into pie mixture, stir until sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to an ovenproof pie dish. 
  5. Spray one side of the filo pastry sheets with olive oil, then scrunch them on top of the pie mixture. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, until golden brown. Serve immediate with a side salad or roasted vegetables.
