Old Fashioned Chicken Salad in Puff Pastry Shells

Kathie Carr


Easy, good, and elegant. Mom made this chicken salad and served it in mini-pie shells. I like to use the frozen puff pastry, instead.

Probably because her pie crust was so much better than mine.... :)

I greatly appreciate the photos shared by Kathleen Duffin. So much better than my pictures. THANKS!
