Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra splash
  • 1 finely sliced onion

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and fry, stirring, for 10 minutes until softened. Add the garlic cloves, harissa dried spice mix (we used Bart) and cinnamon, then continue to cook for 2 more minutes.
  2. Add the almonds, raisins and red peppers, then stir well. Pour over the tomato passata and bring to a simmer.
  3. Remove the meat from the chicken, shred into the sauce, then season to taste. Stir in a handful of chopped fresh coriander and flatleaf parsley leaves and transfer to a large pie dish. Top with the scrunched-up filo sheets, brushed with olive oil, then sprinkle over a pinch of ground cinnamon. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and piping hot.
