Chicken sausage rolls

Chicken sausage rolls

Something for Everyone
Ben Dearnley

Made with chicken, zucchini, wholemeal bread and plenty of herbs, these sausage rolls are so much healthier than any you’ll buy in a shop – and a whole lot tastier too.


Quantity Ingredient
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 brown onion, finely diced
1 garlic clove, finely diced
2 slices wholemeal bread, roughly torn
500g chicken tenderloins, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons chives, roughly chopped
1 zucchini, finely grated
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 square sheets puff pastry, partially thawed
1 egg, lightly beaten
sesame seeds, to sprinkle

Herb yoghurt sauce

Quantity Ingredient
200g plain yoghurt
2-3 tablespoons fresh mixed herbs, chopped, such as mint, chives and flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 garlic clove, peeled


  1. To make the herb yoghurt sauce, place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Refrigerate until needed.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 10 minutes, or until golden. Set aside to cool.
  4. Place the bread in a food processor and process until crumbs form. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Place the chicken, parsley and chives in the food processor and process until the mixture is minced. Add to the breadcrumbs and use your hands to mix through the zucchini and lemon juice.
  5. Cut the pastry sheets in half to create rectangles. Spoon the chicken mixture lengthways down the centre of each. Lightly brush the edges with water and fold the pastry over to form a log, pressing the edges to seal. Turn the rolls over so they are sitting seam side down. Brush the tops with egg, sprinkle with sesame seeds and cut each roll into six smaller pieces. Arrange on the tray and cook for 15 minutes, or until cooked through and the pastry is golden. Serve warm, with herb yoghurt sauce on the side.

Baby’s serve

  • For a younger baby, wait at least until your baby is managing some finger foods (which may not happen until 8–9 months or older) before offering her these sausage rolls. Cut them into pieces that she can easily hold. For an older baby, cut into pieces that she can hold or serve as is.

Toddler’s serve

  • Serve as is, cut into halves or quarters if needed.
