German Recipe Search: Chicken & Mushrooms in Wine Sauce in Puff Pastry (Konigs Pastette)
I'm sorry to bother the board about this silly Q but I've been unable to find an answer for many, many weeks and would like to get help from the GLP international community.

I have some canned chicken in my survival stores, as well as dried mushrooms, that would be perfect for this incredible dish I used to get everywhere in Germany. Only I can't find any recipes online. I can't even find web pages on this recipe, which would be perfectly delicious for using up survival foods that I have to rotate on my shelves.

The dish was called "Konigs Pastette" ("King's Pastry") and was simply chicken in some kind of wine sauce with mushrooms in little puff pastry cups. I've tried using other chicken and mushroom in gravy recipes, but they don't work well.

What's surprising to me is that this dish was everywhere, on practically every German restaurant's appetizer menu since it's easy to make in advance and serve on a buffet for brunch or early dinner.

This was good enough to serve to guests at elegant parties, yet very simple and easy to make in advance. It would be wonderful if I could use up this canned chicken and the dried mushrooms I have to rotate, for this dish!

Didn't find the Koenigspastete itself, but the recipe for the filling ("Ragout Fin"), which you can then just fill into the puff pastry shells.

Here's the translation of the recipe:

RAGOUT FIN

26 oz chicken breast
4 cups chicken broth
6 tbsp. butter
2-3 heaped tbsp. flour
1 cup buttom mushrooms
1 tsp. lemon juice
6 tbsp. white wine
salt
pepper
Worcestersauce
1/3 cup shredded cheese/parmesan
flakes of butter

Rinse meat with cold water and cook in the broth until cooked through. Cut meat in very small cubes. Melt butter and add flour, heat while stirring until light yellow. Take Add 1/3 of the broth, whisk together (make sure there are no clumps), bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.

Cut mushrooms in small pieces, add with the meat to the gravy and let come to a boil. Add lemon juice and white wine, plus salt and pepper to taste.

Fill into 10 puff pastry shells, spirnkle with the cheese and butter flakes. Bake at 425-450 degrees F for ca. 15 minutes. Before serving, add lemon juice and Worcestersauce to taste (optional).

There you go. Hope you'll have a yummy dinner.
