    To cook the whole chicken

    Ingredients

    • 1 x 2kg whole chicken
    • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1 brown onion, roughly chopped
    • 2 large carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
    • 1 stick celery, roughly chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
    • ½ cup white wine
    • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1L water

    Directions

    1. Rinse the chicken inside and out well and pat dry with paper towel.
    2. Rub 1 tbsp. oil, salt and pepper onto the chicken skin.
    3. Using your Pressure Express Digital Pressure Cooker, select the ‘SAUTÉ’ setting then press the ‘START/CANCEL’ button to commence cooking process. Allow to pre-heat for 5 minutes.
    4. Add the whole chicken – breast side down and seal all over.
    5. Remove the chicken and set aside.
    6. Add the onion, carrots, celery and garlic, saute for 5’00”. Deglaze with the white wine.
    7. Place the water and chicken to the pressure cooker bowl.
    8. Securely place and seal the lid onto the pressure cooker. Select the  ‘POT ROAST’ setting and press ‘START/CANCEL’ button. Allow to cook. (Select the ‘SOUPS/STEWS’ setting manual Kambrook Pressure Cooker). Allow to cook until pre-set cooking display time is complete.
    9. To avoid a cloudy stock, allow the pressure to release itself, if time allows. Should time not allow - Release the pressure from the pressure cooker by turning the pressure release valve to the right.
    10. Once the pressure is released, carefully remove the lid, remove the chicken and place into a large bowl to cool enough to touch.
    11. Strain the stock through a large sieve to remove the larger pieces and then through a smaller fine cloth. Let sit for a while and then skim the scum from the top of the stock with a ladle.
    12. With gloves on, pull the meat from the chicken, and separate into 3.
    13. This is to allow the allocation of the meat for each recipe.
    14. Clean the pressure cooker for further recipes.

    4. Filo pastry tip –Place a dry tea towel with a damp tea towel on top of that over the filo pastry whilst making triangles. The pastry dries out quickly, so it needs to be covered.

    6. Cut into 4 strips and place ¼ cup of chicken spinach mixture on each strip of filo pastry. Fold the corner over to form a triangle. Continue to fold over until the strip of filo is depleted and in the form of a triangle. Brush the outside with butter, sprinkle with sesame seeds and set aside into a container lined with greaseproof paper. Cover whilst continuing to make the remainder of the triangles.
    7. To cook the filo triangles – Pre-heat your KAMBROOK electric frypan on dial 6 for 3 minutes. Add the triangles to the frypan. Cook on each side for 5-10 minutes or until desired colour is reached. Serve with minty yoghurt.
    8. To make the minty yoghurt – mix together the yoghurt, mint, lemon, salt and pepper.
