I went to a party over the weekend and I had the most amazing creamy chicken vol au vents. They were amazing..I am trying to get the recipe from the host.
I was just wondering if anyone would be able to share their recipes for vol au vent fillings. Thanks.

  • Oh yum, there need to be some of these recipes on here!

  • My sister in law made them a few times as she buys the bases at the supermarkets. Last time I remember she made it like a creamy chicken filling using chicken fillet, thickened cream and she may mix it with chives/shallots , and then season it . You can sprinkle parmesan cheese on it if you wish . Of course she cooked the filling in a pan first before filling it then heat it in the oven to brown the base and then it’s done.

  • Easy one is cream cheese with onions and spinach.. Very yummy

  • I do like the comment with the white sauce base add cooked chicken, some grated cheese and voila. Sounds great!

  • Interesting comments!

  • One of my knock out sweet version for parties is to fill the base with raspberry jam and top with brie, in the oven for 5 minutes, et voila.

  • I used to do a chicken vol au vont. Id do a white sauce base add cooked chicken, some grated cheese and voila. Fill the vol au vonts bake in the oven to cook the cases and then serve. I think using a white sauce base you could probably put anything in it from mushroom, seafood, whatever you fancy. You could even do a mornay base, do tuna or chicken add corn, peas. I hope this helps.

  • Start with a simple cheese sauce that is thick enough to spoon either a packet one or make your own. I make two or three bowls. Asparagus can be added with cracked black pepper, tuna to another with finely diced shallots, and chicken and corn ni lets to the other. Generally around ten minutes to gently reheat.

  • Thanks for everyone who responded.
    If you could find your recipes that would be great.
    I have a serious pregnancy craving for them. I feel like chicken vol au vents :)

  • I used a recipe that used a BBQ chicken, condensed milk and seeded mustard. Maybe some spring onion too. Will find my recipe – I cut it out of the newspaper years ago! I e also had Mexican style voluvents. Yummmmm – I might have vol u vents for dinner this week

  • A Womens Weekly cookbook has several recipes I have followed in the past that are yummy! I think it was in The Best of WW cookbook. Google it. Goodluck.

  • there is a recipe on here so maybe try to type it in and find it

  • I seem to remember a recipe using condensed cream of chicken soup and asparagus topped with cheese. Can’t remember it exactly, but it was very more-ish.

  • white sauce (homemade or packet ) add tuna, cooked mushrooms or any chopped meat, season to taste or add colour (spoon of pesto to sauce for difference) variety is the key,next is imagination

  • Caramalised onion, some sliced sundried tomatoes and a few chopped black olives makes a very yummy filling!
