1/2 Photos of Chicken Avocado and Mushroom Vol-Au-Vents
The Flying Chef's Note:
Delicious creamy chicken, avocado and mushroom filling for pastry cases.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- olive oil
- 4 seasoned chicken breasts (I sprinkle both sides of the breasts with garlic, paprika and parsley)
- 1 onion, chopped finely
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 250 g mushrooms, sliced
- 1 avocado, chopped
- 4 large vol-au-vent cases (about 13cm in diameter)
For the sauce
- 1Note: I could not get large vol-au-vent cases and used medium ones, they are just too small you can't fit enough filling in so there is too much pastry. For photo purposes I didn't overfill, but if this size is all you can get I suggest over stuffing and pouring extra filling and sauce over the top when dishing out. It doesn't look as pretty but you get a good ratio of filling to pastry and it still tastes delicious. The quantity of filling is for large cases and works well, but is to much for such small cases (hence over stuff). I used 2 cases for myself but gave 3 to my hubby.
- 2Heat oil in a pan and add onion and garlic, cook until onion softens, add mushrooms and cook until soft. Set aside.
- 3Wipe pan clean and add some more oil add seasoned breasts and cook both sides until cooked through. Remove and chop chicken into chunks. Set to one side.
- 4Pour milk in a pan with stock and heat. Add a little water to cornflour mix and pour half of the liquid into the milk, stir until mixture thickens slightly.
- 5Add wine, Dijon mustard, cayenne and cream stir to combine, add the rest of the cornflour and stir until mixture thickens.
- 6Return mushrooms, onion and chicken to cream mixture, add the thyme and avocado and stir in gently to combine. Keep hot until serving.
- 7Place vol-au-vent cases on an oven tray. Bake in a moderate oven about 5 Min's or until heated through.
- 8To serve place cases on plate and spoon filling into them. I served mine with honeyed carrots and buttery garlic spinach.
