Preheat your oven to 200°C. Trim the carrot then quarter lengthways (no need to peel). Chop widthways into small pieces. Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Crumble the greek salad cheese into small pieces.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the diced chicken thigh and season with salt and pepper. Fry until golden brown on the outside, 5-6 mins. Turn occasionally. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw chicken and its packaging. Add the shallot and carrot to the chicken. Stir together and cook until the veg has softened, 5-6 mins.
Stir in the garlic and harissa paste and cook for 1 min. Pour in the passata, chickpeas (with their water) and the chicken stock paste. Bring to the boil and simmer until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Add the baby spinach to the pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins. Stir in the greek salad cheese, then taste the sauce and add salt and pepper if needed. Transfer the mixture into an appropriately-sized ovenproof dish.
Halve the filo pastry sheets to make squares (see ingredients for amount). Scrunch each filo pastry sheet into a very loose ball and place on top of the pie. Repeat until the whole pie is covered, making sure not to overcrowd the pastry. Drizzle the whole thing with oil and then bake on the top shelf of your oven until the filo is golden, 10-15 mins.
Serve the scrunch pie in bowls. Enjoy!
