Chicken Samosas~

Recipe from my friend, Richard


About 1/3 package of filo dough

2 teaspoons butter plus 1/4 cup

1/2 cup celery, finely chopped

1/2 medium onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon flour

1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder (Richard doubles this)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 1/2 cups diced chicken breast (about 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts)

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup plain yogurt

Melt 2 teaspoons of butter in saute pan.  Add onion and celery and cook till soft.  Add flour, curry and salt.  Cook about 1 minute.  Add broth, cook and stir for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Mix together cooked mixture, chicken, sour cream and yogurt.  Let cool.


Lay filo dough flat with long end facing you.  Cut into 2 inch strips (you will only need to use about 1/3 of the dough).  Keep filo dough covered with damp towel while not using.  

Melt the remaining 1/4 cup butter.  Brush butter along strip of filo.  Place 1 teaspoon chicken mixture at the bottom of the strip and fold up in flag fashion, forming a triangular package.  Brush top with butter and place on parchment lined baking sheet.  Continue till all chicken is used.  Bake at 350º fir 25 minutes or till golden.

You may also freeze and bake frozen for 35-45 minutes.
