Bleu Cheese Chicken Tartlets

**This giveaway is now closed**

Life is good. I was sick when I left Colorado, but for some reason being sick in Hawaii does not feel as bad as being sick in Colorado; I think it’s because of the humidity. My friends greeted me with a lei and champagne at the airport, not too shabby! I have a few interviews at restaurants around the area this week, one of which is Morimoto’s restaurant in Waikiki! Wish me luck! Since I am having so much fun, I figured you all deserve some fun as well, so I am happy to announce a cheese giveaway from Ile de France cheese! This giveaway is extra exciting because there is not one, but FIVE winners!

As much as I try not to, I always want to use buffalo sauce when I have bleu cheese… Only natural. This time I wanted to be a little unique so I turned the buffalo and bleu cheese combination into a tasty tartlet, the perfect appetizer. This dish is definitely for people who truly love the taste of bleu cheese. As for the giveaway, see below on the rules and how to enter!

Bleu Cheese Chicken Tartlets
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 1 basic flakey tart crust
  • ½ lb chicken (shredded or deli slices)
  • ¼ cup red onion (chopped)
  • ¼ cup buffalo sauce
  • ½ cup bleu cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Cut the tart crust into small pieces and roll out individual tartlet shells.
  3. Place the shells in a well-greased min cupcake tray, fill with baking weights and bake until crisp (about 30-45 minutes).
  4. Meanwhile, toss the chicken and onion with the buffalo sauce in a bowl.
  5. Remove the tartlets from the oven and fill with the chicken mixture, then top with bleu cheese.
  6. Return the tartlet to the oven and bake until cheese is melted (about 10 minutes).

For the giveaway, Ile de France will be providing FIVE lucky winners with an assorted cheese gift! I will pick a winner in TWO weeks on January 23rd. Since there are five prizes, I want to structure this giveaway a little differently.

    Why would I love this cheese? Because, well, it’s good cheese! I miss the vast amounts of low priced high quality cheeses I had available in Germany. A ton! I think I would want to make a pear and cheese tart :)

  2. Athena says:

    Best of luck on your interviews. I LOVE cheese. I usually keep about 3 or 4 different varieties in my refrigerator at one time. If I won this fabulous cheese, I would make grilled cheese sandwiches, quiche and I’m sure some casseroles. The possibilities are endless.

  9. Those tarts look delicious. I’d have loved to have grabbed a handful on New Year’s Eve. I hope that your cold is entirely gone very quickly so you can fully enjoy Hawaii! Fingers crossed on the interview as well. You’re on hallowed ground there in Morimoto’s restaurant. I’m very envious.
