Chicken And Andouille Pastry Cups With Sweet Barbecue Sauce

  • Yield: 30 bites


  • 2 (2.1-ounce) packages mini phyllo shells (30 1 1/2-inch shells), thawed
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (6-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 teaspoon Emeril's Original Essence
  • 4 ounces andouille, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cups Sweet Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place the shells on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and crisp, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the shells from the oven.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with the Essence and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  • Add the onions, salt, and cayenne and cook until the onions are very soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the water, 1/2 cup of the barbecue sauce, the parsley, and cheese. Simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and add the bread crumbs. Mix well. Let cool. Fill the shells with meat mixture.
