Ingredients
  • 75g onion, diced (about ½ an onion)
  • 125g mixed peppers, diced (about ⅓ of a red, a green and a yellow pepper)
  • 150g cooked shredded chicken

Method
  1. Fry the onions and mixed peppers until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add the precooked shredded chicken

  4. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
  5. Dust a clean work surface with a sprinkling of flour, cut the pastry block in half and reserve one half for later.
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll out the pastry to a thickness of 5mm.
  7. Place a large plate or circular template on top of the pastry and tear around the edges to create a clean circle. Repeat with the reserved pastry.
  8. Transfer one of pastry circles onto a baking tray and sprinkle with a layer of cheese.
  9. Once cooled, spread the chicken fajita mix evenly on top, leaving a 1cm border around the edge of the pastry.
  10. Cover with the second layer of pastry.
  11. Place an egg cup (or a shot glass) in the centre of the pastry and make 8 to10 even cuts all the way around the pastry.
  12. Brush on some beaten egg.
  13. Twist each segment twice to make it resemble a sun like shape
  14. Bake for 18-22 minutes in the centre of the oven, until golden brown
  15. Tear, share, and enjoy!

 

Tip: to make shredded chicken, simply season and bake some chicken breasts, put it into a bowl and tear it up with 2 forks
