Chicken, Potato, Brie Tart with Caramelized Onions

It is just my kind of tart, you only need a small slice as it is super-rich, but so unbelievably tasty and satisfying, perfect with a lightly dressed leafy green salad on the side. Basically you have a puff pastry shell encasing a layer of sweet caramelised red onion, topped with roughly broken up chunks of potato and chicken dotted with luscious brie. The whole lot is baked in a creamy egg filling and sprinkled with a little thyme.

Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large red onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 large waxy potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, torn into big shreds
  • 7 ounces brie, cut into rough wedges
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • Prepared butter puff pastry (this is too easy!)


  • Heat olive oil in a heavy based pot. Add onions, salt and pepper, and cook over a medium heat for 20 minutes until nice and soft, stirring every once in a while so that they don’t catch on the bottom. Add balsamic vinegar and sugar, remove the lid and cook a further 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.
  • Put potatoes in a medium pot, cover with water, season with salt and bring to a boil. reduce heat to a simmer and cook potatoes 15-20 minutes until just able to be pierced with a knife. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Roll out pastry to fit a round removable base tart tin. Pop in the freezer to chill while the oven heats to 350˚F. Layer the onion, potato and chicken into the pastry shell. Dot with brie and thyme. If you happen to be using left-over roast chicken and have a bit of stuffing spare, pop that in too! Whisk eggs and cream and pour over filling. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the filling is set and the pastry is golden.
