[Recipe] Empadas de galinha – Portuguese tarts with chicken filling

After my return from Portugal I organised a Portuguese tapas evening for my girls. I have served this evening: Empadas de galinha (Tartlet with chicken filling), Folhado do queijo e mel (Flaky particles with Camembert / goat cheese, Basil and honey), Empadas de espinafre (Particles of puff pastry with spinach) and Figo's (Figs with goat cheese, Walnuts and honey), Tart de amêndoas (Mandeltarte – This time in mini format) and Sangria.
