Quick chicken, cranberry and brie canapes

 1 ½ sheets frozen puff pastry, just thawed
 1 small smoked chicken breast, finely chopped
 100 g brie, cut into 24 even pieces
 100 whole cranberry sauce
 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives

Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan forced.


Cut the whole pastry sheet into 16 even squares. Cut the half sheet into 8 even squares. Line 1 1/2 tbs (30ml) capacity mini muffin pans with pastry squares (the pastry edges will be higher than the muffin holes). Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm.


Bake the pastry for 10 minutes or until lightly golden and crisp. Use a spoon to gently press down on the pastry to flatten slightly. Fill each hole with a little of the chicken. Top with a piece of brie and cranberry sauce. Scatter with thyme.


Bake for 5-7 minutes or until golden and the cheese has melted slightly. Sprinkle with chives.
