cookingtaco: Adding blended up macadamia to my brownie mix. (Default)
So I'm not really that great at cooking before 10pm.

Today's experiment was one that I have wanted to try for awhile. The original idea was for a turkey, camembert and cranberry pie. However, alas, my Coles didn't have turkey on Monday night. And I can't find pie crusts anywhere. So instead, I decided on a Chicken Camembert and Cranberry Vol Au Vent (Or as I like to call them, my CCC Vol Au Vents (Pronounced triple C)) since there were Vol Au Vent things at Coles.

Detailed method and pics... )

For those playing at home, here's a recipe's recipe:

125g Camembert
125g Butter
Cranberry jam (or whatever jam has cranberry in it)
1.5 large cooked chicken breasts
1 Egg, beaten

1. Preheat fanforced oven to 180C.

2. Melt butter in microwave. (Or in a metal bowl over boiling water if possible)

3. Add slices of camembert and mix.

4. Keep microwaving to help it mix. Maybe blend.  (The metal bowl method might work better here.)

5. Add chopped chicken breast to mixture and coat well.

6. Paint inside and top with egg.

7. Put layers of mixture in the Vol au Vents (5) then add jam on top and press it with a fork.

8. Once the Vol au Vent is nearly filled, put in oven for 10 mins.

9. Take out and fill Vol au Vents and fill with left over egg return to the oven for 20 mins.

10. Take out and serve. Makes 5.

So yeah, it is that.

P.S. Did I use Vol au Vents right? Should that s be there? Is the t pronounced?

P.P.S. Check out my Flickr page (linked from the photos). It's pretty cool. Show it some love!

If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the frypan.
