Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast cut into four large pieces
  • 3 sheets puff pastry thawed, each cut into 8 squares
  • 1 egg lightly whisked
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 4-5 green onions chopped
  • ½ cup low fat mayonnaise add more if desired
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat it with non-stick spray.
  • Pat chicken breast pieces dry and sprinkle some salt and pepper on both sides. Place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until fully cooked. Let chicken breast pieces cool completely then shred them using two forks.
  • Turn the oven temperature to 350F.
  • Place 24 squares of puff pastry in two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Cut a small square out of 12 of the squares so you have 12 frames.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush some egg on the edges of puff pastry squares, then place the 12 puff pastry frames on the squares. Poke the bottom puff pastry 3-4 times using a fork. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Let the "puff pastry cups" cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, mix shredded chicken, walnuts, chopped green onion, mayonnaise, Greek yogurt , salt and pepper.
  • Fill the cups with chicken mixture and serve either cold or at room temperature.
