Make puff pastry bowls according to directions below.

Bake puff pastry bowls at 400° for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 10 minutes on a
wire rack with custard cup in pastry. Remove custard cup, and cool pastry
on wire rack.

Combine bell pepper and next 6 ingredients; set aside.

Combine salt, pepper, and paprika in a large bowl; add chicken pieces,
tossing to coat evenly. Spread in a lightly greased 15- x 10-inch jellyroll
pan. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, stirring to coat.

Bake at 450° for 7 to 10 minutes, stirring once. Stir in vegetable mixture;
bake 25 more minutes or until browned, stirring twice. Spoon into pastry
bowls; garnish, if desired. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

Rules for Roasting ”¢Roasting chicken at a high temperature (450°) for a
short time, then lowering the temperature for the remaining cooking time
seals in the juices and keeps the chicken moist and tender. ӢWhile you can
also roast a broiler-fryer with good results, chickens specifically for
roasting are labeled "roasting broilers." These birds generally weigh more
and are meatier and more succulent. If you are roasting a broiler-fryer
(which normally weighs approximately 3 pounds), decrease baking time by
about 45 minutes. ӢLet roasted chicken stand for 10 minutes after removing
it from the oven. This standing time "sets" the juices and makes for a more
flavorful bird. ӢRoast chicken on a rack in a broiler pan so fat can drip
off and away from the bird.

Rival restaurant-style presentation with the convenience of puff pastry
sheets. 1) Invert 4 (6-ounce) custard cups on a lightly greased baking
sheet. Lightly grease outsides of cups. 2) Roll each pastry sheet into an
11-inch square. Cut in half diagonally. 3) Mold each portion of pastry
around outsides of cups; allow edges to extend from bowls onto baking
sheet. Trim edges of dough to form equal triangles, using the shortest
point as a guide.
