Ingredients

  • 8 boneless and skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of any excess fat
  • 4 fresh bay leaves
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 500ml good-quality chicken stock
  • 2 medium leeks, washed and sliced
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 150g small button mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 100g 2% fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 4 (each about 32cm x 18cm) fresh filo pastry sheets
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Put the chicken, bay leaves, onion and stock in a pan. Bring the stock to a simmer and poach the chicken for 10 minutes, until cooked through. Remove the chicken and chop into pieces. Reserve the stock.
  2. Meanwhile, put the leeks and 200ml water in a deep, non-stick frying pan and cook for 5 minutes, until the water has evaporated. Add the oil, thyme and mushrooms and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring. Stir in the flour, then gradually add the chicken stock and bubble for 7-8 minutes, until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the chicken, yogurt and mustard (if using). Season. Remove the bay leaves and pour into a 24cm x 20cm ovenproof dish.
  3. Brush both sides of the filo pastry sheets with egg and layer on top of the filling, scrunching the top layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the filling is bubbling (cover with foil if the pastry is browning too much). Serve with seasonal vegetables.
