Need appetizer ideas for a party and just can’t think of what to make try these mini Chicken Tarts. They are great and simple to make! Chicken mushroom and peppers mixed in cream and placed on pastry puffs that are great for any event!

Mini chicken tarts topped with cheese on a baking sheet.

Aren’t these super cute? These chicken, mushroom and pepper tarts can be made to be enjoyed as an appetizer or even lunch. They are quick to throw together and taste rather great, they kind of have an Alfredo taste to them. I think you will enjoy them. We had these chicken tarts last week and I just added a fresh salad and they made for a great lunch for my hubby and I. {These can be made smaller and done for a party as well.}
