They ate the rest before I could even take a photo!


Serves: 8

Ingredients:

1  1/2 chicken breast, diced [1]

1  1/4 cup breadcrumbs

4 puff pastry sheets

1 egg

2 large potatoes

1 carrot, grated

1 medium onion, diced

1 clove garlic (optional)

1/8 wong bok or any cabbage (optional), diced

handful parsley, roughly chopped

salt, pepper, mixed spice, paprika

Method:

Remove the puff pastry from the freezer, and leave aside to defrost.

While it defrosts, in a large pan, place the chicken, parsley and spices together.

Cook on medium heat for 5 – 10 minutes.

Using a mini food processor, grind the chicken. Add to a bowl.

In the same pan, add the carrot, onion, garlic, and cabbage. Cook through on medium heat until onion is soft.

Add the vegetables to the chicken.

Scrub and peel the potatoes and cut into strips (like french fries).

Heat frying oil in a deep fryer. When ready, add the potatoes. (Oil should be ready if a potato sizzles immediately when dropped in).

Fry until the potato is almost completely cooked.

Remove and set aside to cool. Turn off the deep fryer.

[2] I found out that you can’t eat anything with this drumstick if you make it as big as I made mine. The size that I made mine are like real life chicken drumsticks, but they’re really “WOW I have to eat that much?!” So the suggested size is to cut the pastry into 9 squares, not 4. Choice is totally up to you.

Also note that my puff pastry is gluten free for those who are non-gluten eaters.

      I’ve got some girl friends coming over soon for some munching and chatting. I plan to do the mini ones for them, so I’m hoping this time I can line up a dish and take a proper photo… 🙂
