Butter Chicken Filo Pie Instructions
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the diced chicken and cook until browned. Add grated sweet potato. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add the simmer sauce and cream. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the sauce thickens and the chicken is cooked. Stir through coriander. Cool.
Preheat oven to 375˚F or 350˚F convection.
Grease a 9-inch springform tin.
Layer three sheets of pastry, brushing each with some of the melted butter. Fold in half lengthways, place across the base and up the side of the tin with edges overhanging.
Repeat with 9 other sheets, overlapping strips clockwise around the pan until covered.
Spoon chicken mixture into the pan, trim pastry to be level with the top pan edge. Layer remaining 3 pastry sheets, brushing with butter. Fold in half crossways.
Place the remaining pastry on top of the Pie. Trim the pastry to around a little larger than the tin. Tuck pastry edge down the sides of the tin to form crust and brush top with butter.
Place Pie on an oven tray. Bake Pie for about 45 minutes or until browned.
Stand Pie 15 minutes in the pan before cutting. Slice, serve and enjoy.
