TOP TIPS

  • Make sure to pinch the opposite corners of each square tightly so they don’t fall apart in the oven.
  • Thaw the puff pastry for 15-20 minutes before baking. The puff pastry squares shouldn’t be too hard or too soft, they should be firm.
  • Not a fan of bbq sauce? Use buffalo sauce instead!
  • Use an electric mixer or two forks to shred the chicken.
