Chicken salad in a puff pastry nest
Ideal when you have an excess of roasted or cooked meat, and you don't know what to do with it ... it can be small snacks, with a cold beer, with your company, or a great lunch.
- First prepare puff pastry baskets / nests. Spread the puff pastry. We have two pieces in a package of 450 g and they are 24cm X 24cm in size and I first cut the dough into 9 cubes, size 8cm X 8cm.
- Cut the second part of the dough into 9 cubes (if desired, these cubes can be made much smaller, like small snacks) and cut each cube into a circle or a cube and very carefully take out the circle. Coat the underside with a little water and put it over the whole cube, do the same with all the cubes. Prick the lower part of the nest with a fork.
- Beat one egg with 1 teaspoon of water and coat the edges of the cut cubes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and you don't have to. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 ° Coco for 20 to 25 minutes or until nicely browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Also, bake the circles that you took out of the dough, coat them with beaten egg, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake them as well, bake them for about ten minutes or until they turn nicely brown.
- While the nests are cooling, make a salad. Cooked or roasted meat left over from another dish (if you don't have one, you can roast the meat before roasting the nests, one chicken white meat is enough for this salad) cut and cut into "noodles" Add the meat to the bowl, finely chopped spring onions, white and green part, add chopped walnuts, thick yogurt, mayonnaise, salt and pepper, chopped parsley and mix everything well and try if there is enough salt and pepper.
- Fill the nests with the prepared salad, put the lids aside and serve cold or room temperature. All this can be prepared much earlier, just fill them before serving. (I don't know if the nests could be filled earlier, I'm afraid the lower crust won't soften much from mayonnaise and yogurt)
- Pleasant !!!!
