Method

Get involved in this incredibly enjoyable Greek potato recipe which finds the potato mingling with the flavours of chicken, pomegranate and spinach in a unique parcel presentation made of filo pastry.

-

Heat the oven to 220c

Cook the potatoes in salted, boiling water until soft and drain, leaving to steam dry while.

Cook the spinach for one minute in a hot pan until wilted then squeeze out the excess water.

Mix together the remaining ingredients apart from the filo, pomegranate and butter. Taste the filling and adjust the seasoning.

Wrap a sheet of filo over the bottom of a dariole mould/oven-proof teacup or muffin tray, spray with a little cooking spray and then wrap another one over it. Spray again. Repeat another three times then put in the oven until golden brown and crisp, about 10-15 minutes.

When cooked and cool enough to handle, gently turn them upside down and remove the moulds. Fill with the cooked chicken mixture, top with pomegranate seeds and sesame seeds.

Serve with the yoghurt and zatar mixture.

Alex Mackay's Roast King Edwards with Lamb Cutlets, Smoked Paprika, Peppers, Onions & Olives

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."
