Method for tart.

                •             To prepare the tarts.

                •             Take a bowl and add some flour in it.

                •             Add some salt to taste.

                •             After that add some chopped butter in it.

                •             Rub the whole mixture with both your hands, till it reaches a sand like consistency.

                •             Add some chilled water to it, and prepare a stiff dough out of it.

                •             Keep it to rest for some time.

                •             After few minutes, roll the dough into 1/3 inch.

                •             Take a tart mould,

                •             Line it tart mould with some butter and then dust it with some flour.

                •             Dusting some flour to the mould would prevent the dough from sticking to the mould.

                •             With your fingers, shape the dough in the mould.

                •             Now take a fork and poke it into to mould.

                •             It’ll help in even cooking.

                •             Preheat an oven up to 180° celsius.

                •             Place the moulded dough in the oven and bake for about 20 mins until the tarts are cooked.

                •             Keep it to cool down.

                •             Meanwhile prepare the apple filling...

Method for the apple filling.

                •             To make creamy chicken tart, first we’ll make a salad.

                •             start by chopping some red juicy apples, chop them into dice.

                •             In a bowl take 2tsp sour cream.

                •             Add some salt to taste

                •             Top it with a pinch of pepper

                •             And add 1tsp mayonnaise

                •             Mix them well together, it’ll give you a nice added punch.

                •             Add about 1tsp lemon juice to bring up the punch in it.

                •             After that add about 2chopped celery stalks,

                •             Finely chop it so that it gives you some crunch

                •             Also add about 1tsp finely chopped rosemary leaves to it.

                •             After that add in the apples that we chopped earlier to the mix.

                •             Add some 4-5 roughly chopped walnuts to the bowl.

                •             After that add about one whole smoked chicken after shredding and chopping it into small

                              pieces..( smoked chicken give a lovely smoky flavour to the whole mixture.)

                •             TADA....The salad is ready.

                •             Place them in the tarts that we prepared Earlier.

                •             Garnish it with some thin sliced apple pieces.

                •             And then, your lovely creamy chicken tarts are ready to eat.
