Curried Turkey and Couscous Pie

Last week's Curried Turkey Couscous pie was a success with at least three of the four.  Acorn would not even try it so who knows if she would have liked it.  It was much easier to make than I had expected.  I tend to shy away from anything involving phyllo dough but it was not hard.  I will make it again and for sure when the grandparents come to visit.  It had a very nice presentation factor.  To that end I am including the recipe here so I can return the library book,

1 pound cooked chicken or turkey
2 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2tsp curry powder
16 oz chicken stock
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup uncooked couscous
6 sheets phyllo dough

Place all ingredients except phyllo dough in medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  remove from heat.  let stand until oil is absorbed.  stir fluffing couscous. 

Place one phyllo sheet on work surface spray lightly with cooking spray or brush with oil.  Repeat with two more sheets.  Lay all 3 layers into 9" round pan allowing ends to hang over.  Layer 3 remaining sheets as before.  Lay perpendicular to first set in pan.  Spoon turkey mixture into pan.  Fold the overhanging dough over top of filling.  Spray or brush top of pie. 

Bake in 350 oven for 30-35 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.  Serve with mango or cranberry chutney.
