Preheat oven to 200 degrees °C. Heat half of the oil on high and fry the chicken for about 5 mins or until golden. Season, remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the remaining oil to the pan and fry the mushrooms for about 5 mins. Add the butter, garlic and nutmeg and fry for 1 min. Season. Return the chicken to the pan and add the flour. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Reduce the heat and slowly add the milk while stirring. Cook for about 5 mins or until done. Add the brandy (if using), soy sauce and onions to the pan, and season. Spoon into 4 x 250 ml enamel cups or ovenproof bowls. Cool.

Cut the pastry into 4 equal rectangles. Scrunch the pastry on top of the filling into the cups.

Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place on a baking tray and bake for about 20 mins or until golden and cooked. Serve with the baby herbs.
