Speight's Ale House's Chicken Filo Parcels
Makes 6


1kg diced chicken
200g diced bacon
70g diced peaches
50g brie 
chicken stock for cooking
filo pastry
melted butter for brushing

Cook chicken and bacon in a pot in some chicken stock. When cooked, drain off the liquid and soften the cheese in the pot on low heat. Add chicken, bacon and peaches to cheese. Mix well and season to taste.

Preheat oven to 180degC.

Fold a sheet of filo pastry in half, brush with melted butter and top with another folded sheet. Place a heaped spoon of chicken mixture into the centre of the pastry. Crimp the four corners of the pastry and bunch tightly to hold.

Put the parcels in the oven on a tray lined with baking paper and cook until golden brown and the filling is heated through (about 15 minutes).
