  • 800g butternut pumpkin, peeled, deseeded, cut into 3cm pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 400g chicken breast
  • 300g fresh ricotta
  • 1 cup firmly packed combined fresh basil and parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 80g (1/2 cup) sundried tomato halves, drained
  • 1 egg
  • 445g packet Carême shortcrust pastry, just thawed
  • Plain flour, to dust
  • Mixed or white sesame seeds, to sprinkle
  • Tomato relish, to serve (optional)


  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 210C/190C fan forced. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Place pumpkin and onion on the lined tray. Drizzle with 1 tbs oil. Season. Roast for 25-30 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking time, until golden and tender. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool. Transfer to a tray lined with paper towel to cool completely and absorb excess liquid.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1/2 tbs oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Season chicken. Cook, turning, for 10 minutes or until chicken is golden (chicken will not be completely cooked through). Set aside to cool. Cut chicken into 3cm pieces. Set aside on a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  • Step 3
    Combine ricotta, herbs, pine nuts, lemon rind and garlic in a bowl. Season. Add the chicken and tomatoes to pumpkin mixture. Gently toss to combine.
  • Step 4
    Whisk egg and 1 tsp water in a bowl. Place the pastry sheet, long side facing you, on a lightly floured sheet of baking paper. Spread ricotta mixture lengthways in a 9cm-wide strip down centre of pastry. Top with pumpkin mixture. Brush edges of long sides with egg. Bring pastry sides up and over to enclose filling. Roll tightly and lay seam-side down. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to chill slightly. Remove from fridge and brush inside of short ends with egg. Bring ends together to form a circle and press to seal. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest.
  • Step 5
    Carefully transfer wreath on baking paper to a large baking tray. Brush with egg. Use a small sharp knife to score the top. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Cool on the tray for 15 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Serve with tomato relish, if you like.

  • 8 rashers middle bacon, rind removed
  • 8 skinless chicken thigh fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup white long-grain rice
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 1 small lemon, rind grated, juiced
  • 2 cups Massel chicken style liquid stock
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves

  • Step 2
    Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 2 minutes each side or until bacon is light golden. Remove to a plate.
  • Step 3
    Add rice and diced bacon to frying pan. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add onions, garlic, turmeric, lemon rind, stock, and salt and pepper to frying pan. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until well combined. Transfer mixture to an ovenproof casserole dish. Arrange chicken thighs over rice, pressing down gently. Cover with a tight-fitting lid or foil.
  • Step 4
    Bake for 50 minutes or until rice is tender and chicken is cooked through. Remove from oven. Drizzle with lemon juice. Sprinkle with coriander. Remove toothpicks. Serve.

Hoisin chicken and coconut rice

Image credit: (N/A) –


  • 800g chicken thigh fillets
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2cm knob ginger, finely grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 1 x 400mL can coconut milk
  • 350 ml Massel salt reduced chicken style liquid stock
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • extra chopped spring onions/hoisin sauce to serve


  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  • Step 2
    Cut the thighs into large chunks. Place them into a freezer bag. Then add the hoisin, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and sesame oil to the chicken. Close the bag and squish together until evenly distributed. You can marinade the chicken in the bag for 24 hours if you like, but strictly speaking, you could go right ahead and use it straight away.
  • Step 3
    Meanwhile, measure your rice into a strainer and rinse under the tap until the water runs clear. Put the rice into a baking tray.
  • Step 4
    Pour the coconut milk and chicken stock over the rice. Add the peas and stir together until evenly distributed.
  • Step 5
    Remove chicken from the bag and lay the pieces over the rice mixture. Cover the whole tray tightly with foil and place in the oven to cook for about 35 minutes, or until the rice has absorbed most of the liquid.
  • Step 6
    Remove from the oven and let the tray rest for 10 minutes, covered with the foil. This is an important step. It will give the rice a chance to finish absorbing the cooking liquid and fluff up nicely.
  • Step 7
    Serve with some coriander or chopped spring onion and an extra drizzle of hoisin sauce on top of the chicken. Delish! And only one tray to wash up.
