ms1847 I think the chicken is raw, that's what I did anyway. I think it would be too dry to start off with cooked chicken.

should the chicken be cooked first?

excellent. made for a party and everyone loved them. I froze them raw and then cooked them on the day.

I had to use turkey mince, because I don't have a food processor and I couldn't find chicken mince. I cooked half the batch and froze the rest. The batch i cooked from frozen actually tasted slightly better, maybe because they had longer in the oven? Boyfriend and friends said they were the best sausage rolls they had ever had!

Use oven-dried or oven roasted tomatoes instead of sun-dried - in any recipe. Most chefs do. Keep them in oil same as sun-dried.

Made these totally dairy free with pastry i made. Really nice altho a tad garlicky so maybe my clove was just a bit too big!

These are lovely, i used tomato puree instead of sundried and dropped in a couple of mushrooms too (can't have anything without mushrooms!) and they went down a treat! Will make again.

These were so easy and delicious. I agree with the idea of roasted red capsicum. I think it would also be another fantastic easy option. In fact, the list is endless. I used chicken mince as I had it in the freezer and they were great. Both husband and friends loved them. Served with sweet and sour sauce mixed with greek yoghurt. A keeper.
