Ok, gonna get out my saved Word doc that gives detailed directions on how to upload photos and try to show y'all what tonight's supper looked like.

First off, to give credit where it's more than due, this scrumptious bit of heaven came from here: Beat The Winter Chills With Nigella Lawson : NPR, which was on NPR's Morning Edition a few weeks back. This recipe is easy-peasy, folks, even I didn't screw it up, and it is seriously wonderful eating.

As they came out of the oven:

Addendum to the previous:

Things I did differently from the recipe:

The package of skinless boneless chicken thighs I bought was 20 oz, I divided it in half, so figure that I used 10 oz, not the 8 called for in the recipe.

We keep packages of four slices of peppered bacon in the freezer, and I was not about to use three and stick a single lonely strip of bacon back in the freezer, so my version had four slices.

The recipe says "Stir around with the bacon and mushrooms until the chicken begins to color, about 25 minutes." I think the time given is a typo; it should be more like five or six minutes, not 25!

I used 1 1/2 cups of the turkey stock we had leftover from T'gvg (from the deep freeze, we portion it out in 2-cup zip-locks and freeze it that way; the other half-cup is in the fridge awaiting a stir-fry in a couple days).

Note on the puff pastry sheets: if you're using the Pepperidge Farm variety and you have those 2-cup Corning ware ramekins, the ones that are about 5" across, cut your pastry circles to top the pies FIRST, then cut off strips from what's left for the edges of the ramekins. If you cut the strips off first, what's left won't quite make a pair of big enough circles. You can stretch them to make them work, but they're not quite as pretty.

This was my first experience cooking with rice noodles. Now that I've got the sauce thing figured out, I love to stir fry, and this dish came out really tasty.
