I have made this same recipe and put it in filo as a pastie type of thing that we took to a family lunch and no one had a clue that it was diet food. I just wrapped them in little squares with each corner meeting in the middle of the top. :)

Hope that made sense to you. :?

Another thing I often do with this recipe is add extra veg. and then I make a spare pie with just the vegetables and no chicken but the flavour is still there from the stock. My family love this recipe and it is a great one for taking to work or as my son will tell you it is great to eat cold. :D

If the second pie lasts long enough you can freeze it for another meal.
