Chicken Filo Triads Recipe
This recipe is actually quite a simple dish despite its strange and menacing name. It is simply filo pastry filled with (amongst others) bacon, chicken livers and mustard.
- 25 g (1 oz) margarine (or butter if more to taste)
- 125 g (4 oz) chicken liver, washed, dried and chopped finely
- 50 g (2 oz) smoked bacon, finely chopped
- 1/2 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 x g ml spoon (1 tsp) wholegrain mustard
- 1-2 x 15 ml spoons (1-2 tbsp) orange juice
- 25 g (1 oz) walnuts, chopped
- Salt and black pepper
- 12 sheets filo pastry
- Melted margarine for brushing
Melt margarine and saute chicken livers, bacon and onion until lightly browned. Stir in remaining filling ingredients, season well and remove from heat. Fold each sheet of filo pastry in half lengthways, sealing together with melted margarine.
Divide the filling between the pastry sheets and spoon into one corner of each strip. Fold the opposite corner on the shortest length, across the filling and seal with a little melted margarine. Continue to fold the triangle until all the pastry is used. Brush with melted margarine and place on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 180°C, 350°F, Gas No. 4 for 20 minutes.
