The other day I made these little tarts, for lunch but could be amazing like appetizers too, especially love the crust of those chicken tarts.
I adapted from a little book I have Love food by Sara Lewis
(8 little tarts)
400 grams of all purpose flour
85 grams of butter ice in cubes
85 grams veggie margarine ice in cubes
pinch of salt
about 4 tablespoons of col water
25 grams of butter
1 tablespoon of oil
500 grams of breast chicken in cubes
2 green onions chopped
2 tablespoon of flour
2 tablespoons of white wine
300 ml chicken broth
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
salt and pepper
2 egg yolks to brush the crust
Make the filling
In a skillet heat to medium heat the oil and butter, add the onion and chicken into pieces, cook for 10 minutes until golden, sprinkle the flour and add the broth and white wine, add the parsley, salt and pepper. Cook for about two minutes.
Cool slightly before filling the tarts.
Put the flour and salt in a large bowl and add the cubes of butter and margarine.
Use your fingertips to rub the butter and margarine into the flour until you have a mixture that resembles coarse breadcrumbs with no large lumps of butter remaining.
Try to work quickly so that it does not become greasy.
Using a knife, stir in just enough of the cold water to bind the dough together.
Wrap the dough in clingfilm and chill for 20 minutes before using.
Alternatively using a food processor, put the flour,butter,margarine and salt in the food processor and pulse until the fat is rubbed into the flour.
With the moto running, gradually add the water through the funnel until the dough comes together.
Only add enough water to bind it and then stop
Can use muffins pan.
Butter the molds and heat the oven to 180 ° c.
After short roll the dough circles of about 10 cm and put into molds and paint the edge with egg glaze with water.
Fill the tarts, and cut the remaining dough to cover the tarts, paint with yolk mixture and affirm the edges. Bake at oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool slightly before serving. To serve I sprinkle black sesame seeds.
The crust is very good!
