My kids ask for these all the time - we all love them. I get around 12 triangle parcels - which feeds us for 2 nights. Fantastic!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the chicken into strips lengthwise, approx 15mm thick (like for a stir-fry).
  2. Melt the butter in a deep frypan or saucepan, adding the chicken, eschalot, mushrooms and pepper.
  3. Saute lightly for around 3 minutes.
  4. Add the flour and mix well.
  5. Add the spinach, cream and chicken stock powder.
  6. Heat it til the sauce thickens, then add the cheese and remove from the heat and allow it to get quite cool. (You can do this step early, let it sit in the fridge and assemble the parcels later on).
  7. Layer 3 sheets of filo, slice in half, and spoon about 2 tblsp of mixture onto one end of the filo stack, then roll up like a spring roll, tucking the ends inches
  8. Spray lightly with oil, sprinkle with sesame/poppy seeds and bake in a hot oven for around 20 minutes.
