Butter                                   3 Tablespoons 

Oil                                           1 Tablespoon 

Garlic Clove                        1 Sliced

Melt the butter and oil the pan. Sauté sliced garlic until lightly golden, followed by onions until translucent. Cook for about a minute while whisking in the flour.

Add 1/4 cup milk, a chicken cube, black pepper, salt, chili flakes, and Italian herbs. Whisk for another 2-3 minutes, or until no lumps remain.

Mix in the shredded chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add more milk if necessary. Allow it to cool before forming the chicken patties.

3.    For Chicken Puff Pastry Assembly

Puff Pastry/Pastry Sheets             1 Kg

Egg                                                         1

Flour To Dust

Puff pastry sheets should be defrosted. Roll out a rectangle from your puff pastry block. Sprinkle flour on the surface to make rolling easier. Set aside an oil-greased baking sheet.

Using a cookie cutter, cut out pastry rounds. Place one teaspoon of filling in the center. Brush the edges with egg, then cover with another pastry round. Using a fork, crimp the edges. To make patties, repeat the process.

Bake the patties at 200 degrees Celsius for 10 to 15 minutes, or until patties are light golden brown.

* The chicken patties can be frozen as well.

Tips

  • If you’re using puff pastry sheets, you need to defrost them and cut them into circles because they’re already thinly rolled. To save time on re-rolling, make puff pastry triangles or squares with the same method and filling.
  • Puff pastry should be rolled out in a cool kitchen area because it can become difficult to handle when warm.  Try to roll in a cool place or make chicken patties when the oven and stoves are off.
  • Check your oven temperature; a low temperature will result in flat puff pastries.

The buttery, flaky pastry crust is ready to serve with the warm, creamy chicken filling for your teatime snakes. Everyone enjoys this crunchy, flaky chicken treat, whether they are children or the elderly.
