MAIN COURSE

HOT CHICKEN SALADS IN CORN MEAL TULIP CUPS, American

Ingredients

    Chicken Salad:

  • 3 cups cut-up cooked chicken
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • ½ cup chopped blanched almonds
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • ¼ teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup grated Swiss cheese
  • Tulip Cups:

  • 3 cups sifted enriched flour
  • 1 cup enriched corn meal
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup water
Preparation Instructions

Combine ingredients for Chicken Salad. For tulip cups, sift together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water a little at a time, until dough will just hold together. Turn out on lightly floured board and knead gently a few seconds. Divide dough in half; roll each half out to form a 10 x 15 inch rectangle, Cut into six 5-inch squares. Place squares in custard cups shaping dough against the sides of the cups and allowing corners to hang over. Fill each pastry-lined cup with chicken salad; place cups on cookie sheet and bake in hot oven (400° F.) 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 12 tarts.
