1 tablespoon Peanut oil
1 tablespoon Green curry paste
400 millilitre Can coconut milk
1 KNORR Roast Chicken Gravy
4 Chicken breast fillets, cubed
800 gram Butternut, deseeded, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
150 gram Baby spinach leaves
1 tablespoon Fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Brown sugar
2 teaspoon Fish sauce
1 Egg, lightly whisked
1 Roll ready-rolled puff pastry, thawed
1 cup Rocket leaves, to serve


Preheat oven to 200°C.
Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat.
Add curry paste and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
Add chicken cubes and fry until lightly golden brown.
Add the coconut milk, KNORR Roast Chicken Gravy powder and bring to the boil.
Add the butternut and reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until tender.
Add the spinach, lime juice, sugar and fish sauce, and stir until spinach just wilts.
Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
Spoon the chicken mixture among four 250ml dishes.
Brush the edges of the dishes with egg.
Top each pie dish with a layer of pastry and lightly press the edges to seal.
