Thai Coconut Chicken Parcels

I’m not usually a huge fan of coconut but boy am I loving everything chicken and coconut at the moment, particularly with Thai flavours. I recently made my Thai Chicken Sausage Rolls and the flavours inspired these parcels.

They are mild enough for the kiddies. They have a good kick of lime so if you aren’t a fan of lime, reduce the amount. If you like things a little hotter you can certainly add more chilli to suit your tastes.

The coconut chicken mixture is delicious on rice or rice noodles if you prefer those over pastry. You could certainly make pies rather than parcels as well. The mixture tastes even better the next day once the flavours have really developed. If you get a chance to make it the day before I highly recommend it. Its still delicious fresh.

Below are my instructions for both the tmx and traditional cooking methods for my Thai Coconut Chicken Parcels. The tmx version will have a little excess sauce left when making the parcel version. You do not need to add all of the sauce to the pastry.

Ingredients
  1. 1 clove of garlic
  2. 5g piece of ginger, grated
  3. 1 mild chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
  4. 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
  5. 400g chicken breast, in large cubes
  6. Zest of one lime
  7. Juice of one lime
  8. 200ml (half a 400ml tin) of coconut milk
  9. Half a bunch of coriander, roughly chopped
  10. 4 sheets of puff pastry
  11. Egg or milk for glazing
  12. Sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Place garlic, ginger and chilli into bowl.
  2. Add coconut oil.
  3. Cook on speed 2, 100 degrees for 2 mins.
  4. Add whisk attachment.
  5. Add chicken.
  6. Cook on reverse, softest speed, 100 degrees for 5 minutes.
  7. Add coconut milk, juice, zest and coriander.
  8. Cook on reverse, softest speed, 100 degrees for 10 minutes.
  9. Spoon mixture evenly into the middle of each sheet of puff pastry. Fold into a parcel shape.
  10. Because I'm working with a hot mixture I fold my parcels in the baking tray I'm baking them on to avoid having to transfer them as the mix will soften the pastry.
  11. Brush with egg or milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  12. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and crunchy.
Notes
  1. If you want your mixture more "saucy" add some more coconut milk.
  2. This will make 4 large parcels as shown in the photo. You can make this into 8 smaller ones by using one sheet for two parcels.
  3. You may know the whisk attachment as a “butterfly”.

    At first I was worried as there didn’t seem to be a lot of chicken mixture to put in the parcels but I shouldn’t have doubted! They were divine!!! Definitely making again as it was just so easy and quick!!
