Vol au Vents

vol1

I was waiting in the check out queue at the supermarket recently and talking to the woman in front of me, (as you do, when the queue is long), when I noticed she had ready-made vol au vent cases in her trolley. I asked her what she filled them with and she said, “cut-up a chicken and pour in a tin of soup, then top the lot with cheese and bake them in the oven”. Inspired, I asked her to watch my trolley while I ran back to the bread aisle and grabbed a packet of vol au vent cases for myself.

When it came to the crunch, I made up my own recipe for a filling. I knew Miss S would never eat anything which she knew had cheese in it, so I had to be creative.

4 large, ready-made vol au vent cases

Leftover cut up chicken

1 egg

2 Tablespoons cream cheese (I know, I know, how sneaky is that?)

2 Tablespoons frozen peas and corn

Place the vol au vent cases on an oven tray and mix all of the other ingredients together. Spoon into the vol au vent cases and bake at 170 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes. Easy-peasy.
