Chicken Puff Pastries

I wish I could say my kid’s favourite meal was something like kale stir fry but alas no, their top requested meals are my quiches here, and this recipe right here – chicken puff pastries (as they’ve become known in my family).

This is not the healthiest of healthy recipes, but I’m getting lots of requests for it, so here goes!

CHICKEN PUFF PASTRIES

Chicken Puff Pastries

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 pc Chicken Breast
  • 3 cup Mixed veggies frozen
  • 3 cup Corn frozen or can-creamed
  • 250 ml Cheddar cheese grated
  • 300 ml Cream
  • 1 serving Puff pastry

Instructions

  • 1. Poach chicken in boiling water until cooked through (you can cut in half length ways to shorten the process if you like)
  • 2. While that's cooking, throw the cheese, cream and frozen veg in a big bowl
  • 3. Whiz up the corn with just enough water to blend into a thick slurry in the blender or food processor (or just use a can of creamed corn)
  • 4. Add to bowl, along with any other optional boosters you want
  • 5. Cut puff pastries into 4 squares
  • 6. Add a couple tablespoons of filling into each square and fold in half to make a triangle. Press together the edges and then use a fork to press into the edges to give a 'crimp' effect. This will secure the filling inside the pastry as it cooks.
  • 7. Place on a baking tray with either baking paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • 8. Brush with egg or milk and prick with a fork a few times to allow hot air to escape while cooking.
  • 9. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius until nice and browned and the pastry is cooked (around 25mins).

Notes

Optional Boosters:
  1. Cauliflower puree to replace a portion of the cream.
  2. Chicken broth paste (Urban Forager is soooo tasty and great quality)
  3. Mushrooms (diced real small, or even whizzed in the blender with the corn)/mushroom powder.
  4. Nutritional yeast flakes (to reduce or replace the cheese if wanted)
  5. 1 tbsp. Miso paste
  6. Spinach
  7. Cooked onion/leek
Puff pastry:
There are varying qualities of puff pastry. There are recipes online to make your own which is optimal, but I usually haven't left enough time for that so use store-bought. I don't like using non-organic wheat but view anything 'pastry' as a bit of a treat that we don't have often. If buying from a supermarket, get Pampas Butter Puff Pastry. It's miles better than the chemical laden non-butter pastry, even of the same brand. The best store-bought option is Careme - it's more expensive but I've just seen they have a wholemeal spelt option here (!) and a regular option here.
