How to make Chicken & Pear Tarts

Toss the pears in lemon juice to prevent browning. Mix it with the chicken. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingrediants. Add it to the chicken & pear and season with salt & pepper to taste.

Roll out the dough and cut into circles or squares. Oil a cup cake pan and put the dough peices into the cup holes. Fill the shells with the chicken mixture. Bake uncovered at 375 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

Question from the Chef

“I used Bosc Pears for this. I also tried adding gorgonzla, asiago and feta cheeses. The feta was the best of the three, but without any cheese was even better.”
