  3. Step 2: In a large frypan that has been coated with cooking spray, sauté chicken and garlic until cooked.
  4. Step 3: Roughly chop fennel seeds then mix all spices together. Add to chicken and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Step 4: Add drained vegetables and stir into chicken. Combine both kinds of milk with dry soup mix and cornflour then add to pan, stirring continuously until sauce boils. Pour into a casserole dish.
  6. Step 5: Cut one sheet of filo in half then coat with cooking spray. Scrunch up each half and place on top of curry mix. Repeat this process with remaining 5 sheets, giving you 12 scrunches on top. Spray filo again then bake for 15-20 minutes or until filo has browned. Allow 2 scrunches per serve.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
