Step 1

Preheat oven to 400f degrees. Saute chicken, onion, garlic and zucchini in a large non stick fry pan until no pink remains in chicken and liquid is evaporated.

Step 2

Stir in tomato sauce, oregano, basil, pepper and chillies flakes. Heat, uncovered on low for 10 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat. Let stand to cool slightly; stir in cheeses. Set aside.

Step 3

Combine whole wheat flour, first amount of all purpose flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; make a well in the centre. Combine canola oil and first amount of milk in a small bowl; add all at once to the dry ingredients; stir with a fork, just until moistened.

Step 4

Turn out onto a lightly floured board using second amount of all purpose flour; gently knead dough 8 to 10 times. Divide dough into 8 portions; roll each out to a 6 inch circle. Place 1/3 cup filling to one side of centre, moisten edge of dough with some of the second amount of milk. Bring unfilled side of dough over filling and press edges together with fork tines to seal well. Cut slits in top with tip of a sharp knife; place on greased baking sheet. Brush with remaining milk; bake in 400F degree oven for 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown.

Step 5

Diabetic choices: 2 starch; 1/2 fruit & veggies; 1 1/2 protein; 1 fat & oil.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Sent this along with daughter and family and they all loved them. I made the filling the night before and whipped up the dough in the morning and within 45 minutes they were out of the oven. I didn't have any Parmesan, so used a Dubliner with the mozza. I made extra filling so that I can make them for DH and me tomorrow. Thank you for sharing, will be making again. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
