The tasty and spicy  grilled chicken  mixed with the savory spinaches filling enriched with the amazing taste of the boiled "farinheira" and the crunchy/ crispy outside take this pastry to another new level of deliciousness. It's a super easy, flavoured and great recipe for home made comfort food , sure to become  a family favourite in no time!


  •  2 sheets puff pastry
  •  spinaches
  •  garlic
  •  extra virgin olive oil
  •  qs salt
  •  1/2 BBQ chicken 
  •  1 farinheira
  •  1 egg + 1 tablespoon of milk to brush [eggwash]

Cook the farinheira aside in boiling water, but prick it beforehand with a fork so that it doesn't bust. Take off the skin after cooking and step it  with a fork. Reserve. In a frying pan sauté the spinaches with a clove of minced garlic, salt and a drizzle of olive oil and set aside. De-bone the BBQ chicken and cut it into small pieces. Reserve. Place one puff pastry sheet on a flat board [leave the parchmente paper sheet that comes in the package] and have chicken, sausage and spinaches displayed throughout the sheet. Put the other over and shape the two all the way around with your fingers, so that they're securely closed. Give some cuts with a knife and brush with eggwash. Take it to a preheated oven at 180 ° until golden.

  • 2 folhas massa folhada
  • espinafres
  • alho
  • azeite
  • sal q.b.
  • 1/2 frango de churrasco
  • 1 farinheira
  • 1 ovo + 1 colher de leite para pincelar
Cozer a farinheira à parte em água a ferver, mas picá-la antes com um garfo para não rebentar. Tirar-lhe a pele depois de cozida e desfazer a farinheira com um garfo. Reservar. Numa sertã saltear os espinafres com um dente de alho picado, sal e um fio de azeite e reservar. Desossar o frango de churrasco e cortá-lo em pedacinhos pequenos. Reservar. Colocar uma das folhas de massa folhada num tabuleiro plano [deixar a folha de papel vegetal que vem na embalagem] e dispor o frango, a farinheira e os espinafres por toda a folha. Colocar a outra por cima e moldar as duas a toda a volta com os dedos, a fim de que fique bem fechada. Dar uns golpe por cima com uma faca e pincelar com eggwash. Levar ao forno pré aquecido a 180º até alourar.
