Back in September Lindsey took me on a hike for my birthday. The hike was wonderful for so many reasons:
1) I got to spend six uninterrupted hours with Lindsey. We never worried about getting eaten by a mountain lion–we blathered and laughed loud enough to scare away every bit of wildlife within 45 miles.
2) We got to hike down in the dark, by full moon, and it was exhilirating.
3) She brought us ‘dinner’ for the top. While snuggled into a rock shelter to stay out of the frigid wind, she pulled out a birthday brownie, complete with a candle and birthday song. And she pulled out Chicken Puffs. I have concluded that these Chicken Puffs are the tastiest possible hiking treat. Comfort food in a ziploc baggie? Yes, I think so.
I’ve since made them for my husband on his hunting trips and he concurs.
Rather than keep this yumminess all to ourselves, today we are sharing Lindsey’s Amazing Chicken Puff Recipe, complete with two variations on the theme. Enjoy.
*** quick note: Lindsey and I used butter croissant dough from the can… like Pillsbury or Great Value brand… you could also use real puff pastry dough and cut it to the size you want***
