Place Puff Pastry shells on ungreased baking sheets with “top” facing up. Place pastry shells about 2 inches apart on baking sheet.

To ensure that Puff Pastry shells will rise evenly, score the sides horizontally with a small knife.

Unfilled baked Puff Pastry shells may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Always bake Puff Pastry shells in a preheated 425°F oven. Do not bake shells in a microwave or a toaster oven.

  • Grilling is a great way to retain the chicken juices.

  • Great tomatoes always improve a dish. Try to buy them at a local farmer’s market if you can.

  • Crisp, vibrant Romaine lettuce is high in antioxidants – and is a perfect salad green.

"Even easier to make than Hamburger Helper. Just brown the chicken, put the veg in, let them steam and whisk together the sauce at the end all while the puff pastry is getting crispy in the oven. It's elegant and delicious, a big hit at our house! Will be making it again and again."
