Mini creamy chicken pies

Method

For the chicken

  • Place a frying pan over high heat.
  • Cut the chicken into 1 cm thin slices and add the olive oil, salt, pepper, and mix. Transfer to the pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  • Add the rosemary, the thyme, the garlic finely chopped, and the butter. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked through.
  • Remove from the pan and set aside.

For the bechamel sauce

  • Place the same pan over medium heat and add the butter.
  • As soon as it melts, add the flour and whisk until the whole butter is absorbed and turns into a paste.
  • Add the milk in batches, whisking constantly until the mixture thickens and there is a firm bechamel sauce. Remove from the heat.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 190ο C (370ο F) set to fan.
  • Finely chop the chicken and add it into a bowl.
  • Add the bechamel sauce, the cheeses, the mustard, the egg, and mix.
  • Finely chop the green part of the spring onion and the parsley, add them to the bowl, and mix.
  • Spread the puff pastry sheets on your working surface and cut them in half, lengthwise.
  • Transfer the filling into a pastry bag and divide it among the four puff pastry strips.
  • Spread the egg wash around the edges and wrap into a roll. Cut each roll into 3-4 pieces and press the edges with a fork to seal the dough well.
  • Transfer to baking pans lined with parchment paper, brush with the remaining egg wash, and bake the pans separately for 30 minutes.
  • Let them cool and serve.
