Mexican chicken tart: easy recipe

Today we are going to carry out an experiment, like the ones I love to do when I want to eat something different to get out of the routine. We will use as a base a puff pastry, which they can very well buy ready-made for greater ease. On the other hand we will need Mexican green sauce. This sauce can be found in the Mexican produce sections of many supermarkets.

The recipe that I propose is that of a Mexican chicken tart that is presented as a traditional salty tart but with a very explosive flavor as Mexican cuisine can be. It is a fairly simple recipe to prepare so you do not need much time or particular cooking knowledge.


For 2 persons
  • Chicken breast 2
  • Tomato 1
  • Onion 1
  • Mexican green sauce 100 g
  • Foil puff pastry 250 g
  • Mozzarella cheese 100 g
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper

How to make Mexican chicken tart

Difficulty: medium
  • Total time

Cook the chicken breasts in salted water for 20 minutes. We drain and unravel them. We cut the onion into julienne strips that we fry in a pan with a little oil. Chop the tomato and add it to the onion along with the chicken. Season with salt and pepper and stir. We leave five minutes, over medium heat, before pouring the green sauce. We leave another 10 to 12 minutes in the medium high fire until part of the sauce evaporates.

We place the puff pastry in a circular mold previously covered with non-stick paper. We empty the entire contents of the pan into the cake. We cut the mozzarella cheese that we spread. Bake at 180ºC for approximately 25 minutes. When it is ready, let it rest for a few minutes outside the oven before serving.

With what to accompany the Mexican chicken tart

The best way to fully enjoy this Mexican chicken tart is hot along with a green leafy salad. You can eventually eat it warm or cold, but the ideal is definitely hot. You can accompany it with a good red wine that will help you to potentiate all the flavors.
