  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C bake, or 200°C fan bake.
  2. Over a bowl or the kitchen sink, squeeze the defrosted spinach to remove excess water.
  3. Roughly chop the spinach.
  4. Add spinach, feta, shredded chicken, egg, lemon zest, tarragon, garlic, onion, nutmeg and salt and pepper into a large mixing bowl and stir or mix with your hands to combine.

To assemble

  1. Gently lay out one sheet of filo pastry and brush with melted butter.
  2. Top with a second sheet, then place a good dollop of filling at one end.
  3. Roll into a parcel, and fold the ends in using more melted butter to make them stick.
  4. Once assembled, brush each parcel lightly with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pastry is crispy and golden.
