1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2/3 cup frozen peas 80 g
5 tbsp butter, unsalted 65 g
1/3 cup white flour (all purpose) 40 g
375 mL Homemade Chicken Broth 1 1/2 cup
1 1/2 tbsp whipping cream 35% 23 mL

Before you start

Make sure you have the precooked chicken available.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven using the lowest setting. Warm up the puff pastry shells on the individual serving plates.
  2. Prepare the mushrooms: slice them thinly. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, then sauté 3-4 min, with occasional stirring, until the mushrooms are golden and the released liquid has evaporated completely. Set them aside.
  3. While the mushrooms are cooking, cook the small peas, still frozen, by plunging them 4-5 min in a small pot of boiling salted water. Drain them, then set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour then cook 2 min with stirring. Slowly add the broth with stirring and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and cook 3-4 min, with stirring, until the sauce is smooth and a bit thick. Pour in the cream, chopped tarragon, and grated nutmeg.
  5. Add the chicken pieces, mushrooms, and peas. Adjust the seasoning. Cook a few minutes, then portion out the mixture into and around the pastry shells. Serve.

Remarks

The chicken mixture can be made 1 day ahead, then put into the pastry shells just before serving.
