The flaky crunch of purchased puff pastry makes a delicious starting point for simple party snacks.

Rather than a more traditional pâté, a chicken picadillo is first made and then whirred up for a filling in these little first-course puff-pastry packets. The filling is then sealed in the puff pastry dough and baked. It's highly spiced for sure, but also very aromatic, a nice start to any party or meal.
