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.
- Preheat the oven using the lowest setting. Warm up the puff pastry shells on the individual serving plates.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
The chicken mixture can be made 1 day ahead, then put into the pastry shells just before serving.
