Step 1:

  • 1.Get the pastry from the fridge, it takes 15-20 mins to become workable. While the pastry is warming up cook the chicken (any method you like roasting, cubing and frying, i pan fry the whole breast to keep the meat soft and juicy. Also i rubbed it in 5 spice and a little salt to give flavour ), then shred the cooked chicken with 2 forks in a bowl. Cut carrot into small cubes.
