1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease 10 holes of a 12-hole muffin pan with oil spray. Cut filo pastry sheets in half. Take 1 sheet and spread with melted spread, fold over, spread with spread and fold again so it is a quarter of the size. Fit into muffin pan hole and repeat until all 10 are filled with
a filo basket. Cover with a damp tea towel to avoid drying out.
2 Heat a non-stick frying pan with oil spray. Add mushrooms and chicken and stir until cooked. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well until sauce is thickened and ingredients combined.
3 Divide filling among filo baskets then place in oven for 10-15 minutes until filo is golden.
These are best eaten on the day of baking.
