Christina's notes for this recipe:
I had to prepare something to take to a party tonight, and after working all day, I had no ideas. This is what I threw together, and it got such good reviews, I figured I'd best write it down. Enjoy!
(Measurements are approximate, since I wasn't measuring when I made it. Adjust to suit your taste.)

Directions

1
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and tomatoes and cook until onions are translucent. Reduce heat and stir in spinach and garlic.
2
Cut cream cheese into small chunks and add to saucepan. Stir until well mixed and smooth.
3
Add chicken to saucepan and stir until all ingredients are incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
4
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place three mini muffin pans on a large cookie sheet. (This is to make them easier to get in and out of the oven - not completely necessary)
5
Unfold puff pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface and roll to about half original thickness. Be sure to use enough flour to keep the pastry from sticking, but don't overdo it!
6
Using a 2" biscuit cutter, cut pastry into circles. Press one circle into the bottom of each section of mini muffin pans. The pastry should extend only about half-way up the side of the sections.
7
Place about 1 tablespoon of chicken filling into each pastry lined muffin section. Filling should pile up in the middle, leaving the edges of the pastry exposed.
8
Lightly sprinkle the filling with parmesan cheese, then bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot. Makes about 36 appetizers.

Oh, btw, in order to get 36 2" circles out of the pastry sheet, you will have to gether your scraps and roll them out again.
