• 250 ml mushrooms

• 15 ml each butter and oil

• 4 chicken breasts, cubed

• 15 ml flour

• 350 ml chicken stock, warm

• 250 ml butternut, cooked

• 3 rounds feta, crumbled

• 1 roll puff pastry

• 1 egg

1 Fry the mushrooms in butter and oil until brown. Roll the chicken in the flour and add to the mushrooms in the pan. Fry until the chicken is just cooked. Stir in the stock and simmer for a minute or two until it makes a sauce. Add the butternut and feta and season with salt, pepper and fresh herbs.
