  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • fresh basil, chopped, to taste
  • 3 tbsp frozen corn kernels

Directions
  1. Prepare the crust. Mix flour with salt. Incorporate butter to the flour, using your hands or using a pastry processor, until crumbs are formed. Add the egg and incorporate until the dough is homogeneous. Knead the dough and form a ball from it. Wrap it with plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 Celsius (356 F). In a large frying pan heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes until soft. Add chicken breast and cook until the meat has lost its raw color. Stir in paprika, corn kernels and basil, cook for 1 minute. Add salt and pepper and remove from heat.
  3. Roll out the dough into a rectangular shape and cut small circles to fit the mini tart molds. Press dough into tart molds without stretching it. Punch the bottoms with a fork.
  4. Fill mini tarts with chicken mixture, garnish with tomato slices and bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

It's so good to see savory tarts. I'm more of a baker, but I do appreciate a really good savory recipe. Your pics are awesome!

I've made these 4 times in the last 2 weeks for different gatherings (in double and triple quantities) and people just can't get enough of them. I also add a little grated cheese (usually parmesan) right before adding the tomato slice. You'd think people would have had enough of them but they keep requesting them again and again. :-)
Re:

That's great, I am glad to hear that. In the same idea you can also try the empanadas, they might love this too:) You can sprinkle some sesame and flex seeds on top, they are delicious.  http://www.homecookingadventure.com/recipes/mushroom-empanadas-video
