This week is really savoury week and as I have already told you in this post I like to experiment with shortcrust pastry and various ingredients. Today I will show you my new creation: the Chicken Curry Candies. This is a funny and delicious recipe which works perfectly for a party, a light dinner, or a quick lunch. Once you have the shortcrust pastry (which you can also buy ready-made) it´s very very veeeeery quick to prepare.
Ingredients for 3:
2 small chicken breasts
1 red pepper
1 big carrot
Roll out the short crust pastry on a sheet of baking paper and cut it following its shape. In this way you will have a rectangle which you will cut in 8 squares. Cut into stripes of the same size the chicken, the carrot, and the pepper. Then you can start forming the candies as shown below:
1. Place in the middle of each square a piece of chicken, carrot, and pepper.
Sprinkle some curry and a couple drops of olive oil.
2. Close the pastry over the filling.
3. Twist the empty limbs a couple of times to make sure the filling stays inside.
Then when your candies are ready, bake them in the oven at 180°C for about 15 minutes or until golden-brown. You can eat them warm or cold; they are delightful accompanied by curry rice and fresh mixed salad or simply alone.
