Cook's Tips

To prevent filo drying out and tearing, always keep it covered with greaseproof paper, then a clean, damp teatowel. Work quickly when using filo.

To enclose the chicken and vegetables fold the top of the filo over, fold the sides in, then roll up the remainder, pinching the pastry together.
