Chicken, Mushroom and Spinach Parcels

Jump to Recipe

Since the pork, pine nut and spinach parcels worked out so well, I thought I’d try it again with chicken, mushroom and spinach.  In this recipe, corn flour is used to give the filling a bit of a sauce.  However, the mixture shouldn’t be too wet, otherwise the parcels will fall apart.

Chicken, Mushroom and Spinach Parcels

Course Main Course
Servings 4 parcels


  • 600 g chicken breast cut into 2-2.5cm pieces
  • 2 tbsp corn flour
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1/2 large onion peeled and halved
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • 15 g light olive oil
  • 6 mushrooms halved
  • 2 tsp Thermomix vegetable stock concentrate
  • 4 handfuls baby spinach (~75g) rinsed and dried
  • 4-6 sheets chilled filo pastry or frozen pastry, defrosted per instructions
  • Light olive oil for frying


  • In a mixing bowl, add chicken, cornflour, salt and pepper and stir to combine
  • Add onion and garlic into the Thermomix bowl and chop for 3 seconds | Speed 4
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add oil and cook with the measuring cup (MC) off for 2 minutes | Speed 1
  • Add mushrooms and chop for 10 seconds | Speed 3
  • Add chicken and cook with the MC off for 15 minutes | Varoma | Reverse | Speed soft
  • Add stock and spinach, stir into mixture and cook with MC off for 5 minutes | Varoma | Reverse |Speed soft
  • Remove mixture to the Thermomix basket and strain over a small bowl to catch any extra liquid while cooling the mixture; stir occasionally
  • Once the mixture has cooled, make the parcels by taking a sheet of filo pastry and fold in half
  • Put 1/6 of the meat mixture into the centre of the pastry and form into a loosely packed rectangle about 2cm high
  • Fold in the sides of the pastry on the short side and then fold up tightly into a parcel
  • Repeat with the remaining 5 pieces of pastry
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, turn down to medium-low/low and place each parcel into the pan and cook until both sides are golden brown


Make sure the parcels don’t brown too quickly.  Otherwise, the pastry won’t get a chance to cook.  Turn the heat down if the parcels are getting too brown
