Taking inspiration from Middle-Eastern pastries, our Christmas chicken cigarillos are just the thing to greet any dinner guest in from the cold. Wonderfully flaky with a satisfying crunch, the golden crust of the filo pastry gives way to a gorgeously creamy, chicken inside.

This is really quick and simple fare; delicious make-ahead party food that will leave you with time to spare and your guests wanting more.

Ingredients

Method

  • These cigarillos can be assembled up to 4 hours ahead. Cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Bake the cigars just before serving.

  • On a clean and flat worktop, layer 2 sheets of filo pastry on top of each other. On top of the filo pastry, place a sausage sized length of the chicken mixture all along the length of one end of the pastry. Lightly egg wash the rest of pastry. Roll it up so it forms a cigar shaped length. Cut it into around 4 inch cigarillos. Repeat this process until the creamy chicken mixture is used up.

  • To cook, preheat the oven to 210C. Egg wash the top of the cigarillos and back on a baking tray for around 15 minutes. Serve hot, with lots of dipping sauce.
