Made this for the first time last night, though I did make some changes as per other suggestions.
Did NOT use canned chicken (yuck). Used chicken breasts I boiled for about 10 minutes until they were no longer pink, and then shredded them with a fork.
Because I had so much chicken, I ended up using a little more mayo and added some cream cheese. I also added chopped onions (sauteed them in a bit of garlic oil with the red pepper since others had posted that they didn't cook entirely when added to the mixture raw).
I used closer to 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese because I had so much chicken, and I just really like cheese. I also saved some and sprinkled it over the top of the pastry. I think it looked pretty that way :)
I didn't have lemon zest or nutmeg on hand, so I just skipped them, and I totally forgot to add the salt. I didn't miss any of them.
This recipe was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. I can see myself experimenting with all kinds of stuff inside the pastry ring in the future!
