PREPARATION

STEP 1

Make up the dough according to the packet instructions. Knead the dough briefly on a lightly floured work surface until smooth, then put into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Leave to rise for about 15 minutes until doubled in size.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Use your hands to squeeze all excess water from the spinach. Put the spinach in a bowl and mix in the ricotta, parmesan, peppers, spring onions and basil. Season to taste with nutmeg, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Preheat the oven to 220°C.

STEP 3

Knock back the risen dough and cut it into four equal pieces. Roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface to a 20 cm round. Spread one-quarter of the spinach mixture over half of each dough round, taking it to about 2.5 cm from the edge. Pile the chicken on top.

STEP 4

Brush the edge of each dough round with beaten egg, then fold over the untopped half to make a half-moon shape. Crimp the edges to seal tightly.

STEP 5

Place on a lightly oiled large baking tray. Brush with beaten egg and bake for about 15 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Serve hot.
