Serves: 6 

  • 275g diced, cooked chicken meat
  • 100g fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 75g red pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 110g grated Cheddar cheese
  • 8 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons flaked almonds
  • 4 tablespoons diced onion
  • 1 (500g) packet shop-bought puff pastry
  • 1 egg white, beaten

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together chicken, broccoli, red pepper, garlic, Cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, dill, salt, almonds and onion.
  3. Arrange rolled puff pastry sheet flat on a medium baking tray. Using a knife or scissors, cut 2.5cm wide strips horizontally in towards the centre, starting on the long sides. There should be a solid strip about 5cm wide down the centre, with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side. Spread the chicken mixture along the centre strip. Fold the side strips over chicken mixture, alternating strips from each side. Pinch or twist to seal.
  4. Brush plaited pastry with the egg white. Bake in the preheated oven 25 to 28 minutes, or until golden brown.

Something else. I havent tried this recipe yet, but wouldnt the mayonnaise turn to oil if cooked? Thats the only thing that is putting me off trying to make this - 02 Dec 2010
