Quick recipe finder Chicken and tomato smiles
These easy-peasy pasties are delicious hot or cold. Try packing them into the kids’ lunchboxes or taking on a picnic.
- 4 cherry tomatoes, chopped
- 50g/2oz cooked leftover chicken, torn into small pieces
- 2 pinches sweet paprika
- 250g/9oz ready-made savoury shortcrust pastry
- plain flour, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
In a bowl, mix together the tomatoes, chicken and paprika.
Roll out the pastry onto a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of about 0.5cm/¼in. Cut four circles from the pastry using a cookie cutter.
Using a pastry brush, dab water around the edges of each pastry circle.
Divide the filling mixture equally among the four pastry circles.
Fold each pastry circle over itself to create four parcels, pinching the edges together to seal. Place each parcel onto a baking tray and dab with a little more water. Prick each parcel with a fork.
Bake the chicken and tomato smiles in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the pastry is golden-brown and the filling is piping hot. Set aside to cool slightly before serving.
