  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C, 400°F, Gas Mark 6.

  • Heat the oil and gently fry the chicken, turning occasionally, until the meat is sealed and browned.

  • Mix the dried fruit together, stir in the orange flower water, pomegranate seeds and the Perfect Shake Herb & Spice Blend.

  • Cut each pastry sheet in half, leaving you with 4 squares. Brush each square lightly with melted butter.

  • Divide the chicken between the pastry and top with the fruit mixture. Fold the edges of the pastry in, over the top of the fruit and crumple to seal the parcel. Brush with the remaining butter.

  • Transfer to a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake in the top of the oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.

  • Serve garnished with chopped walnuts and pistachios.
