For our shoe making party we prepared our regular chicken salad recipe.
The chicken salad is easy:
- chopped rotisserie chicken,
- pan toasted sliced almonds,
This time we finely chopped all the ingredients because we planned to fill small choux pastry balls with the mixture.
I used the recipe for Basic Cream Puff Dough from Epicurious.
After following the directions for mixing the dough I put it in a pastry bag and piped small blobs onto a baking sheet.
After baking for 10 minutes at 425 degrees then turning the oven down to 350 for another 12 minutes we cooled the balls.
Then the bite-size pastry were sliced in half and filled with chicken salad.
One recipe makes about 50 balls.
What do you like in your chicken salad?
