This evening my family and I sat down to eat a delicious light meal and as I was devouring it I thought to myself: "Self, this would be a really great lunch item for a crowd." Not only are these Chicken Napoleon's really easy to throw together but everything can be prepared in advanced! Scrumptious can be simple yet delicious and these Napoleon's are definitely that.
Here's The Layout:
Avocado, Chicken, Tomato, Spinach, "Kick" Mayo and..
Puff Pastry! What could be better?
The Cayenne Pepper gives the Mayo a little kick without overwhelming it.
Here's the first bit of the assembly. The three layers of pastry make it a napoleon.
The finished stack...
I kept the puff pastry from 'puffing' by keeping
a second sheet pan on top during baking.
Watermelon is a great side with this dish
because it refreshes the pallet and balances out the cayenne in the mayo.
How bout now?
(Like the nice bruise between his eyes? Little boys are always scratched up)
This recipe is one of my favorites! It looks fancy but is super easy and a quick meal. It's light and flaky but fulfilling enough to get you through the day!
Thanks for reading my adventures of becoming a chef!
