Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon olive oil
140g skinless chicken breast fillet
70g finely chopped radicchio
1/4 preserved lemon, flesh discarded and rind finely diced
freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons pouring cream
6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
fresh micro herbs, for garnish

Shortcrust pastry

Quantity Ingredient
300g plain flour
180g cold unsalted butter, cubed
pinch salt
1 egg yolk

Method

  1. To make the pastry, place the flour, butter and salt in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and 2 tablespoons cold water and pulse again until just starting to come together. Knead on a floured surface to bring together, shape into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease twenty-four 6 cm x 2 cm fluted or plain tartlet tins. Roll out the pastry to 5 mm thick and, using an 8 cm round cutter, cut out 24 circles. Press each circle into the tins, trimming excess pastry. Place on baking trays and refrigerate for 30 minutes. To blind bake the cases, line them with baking paper and fill with dried beans, rice or baking weights. Bake for 15–20 minutes, remove the beans and paper and bake for a further 10–15 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Remove and set aside to cool in the tins.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium–high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 1–2 minutes. Add the radicchio and preserved lemon and cook for 2 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the radicchio is wilted. Season with pepper.
  4. Divide the mixture between the cases. Whisk together the eggs and cream in a jug and pour into the cases. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden and set. Cool slightly and remove from tins.
  5. To serve, top each quichette with a tomato quarter and garnish with the herbs.
