I scaled this back for 3 but next time i"ll do it for 2 and just give the DM and I a halve serve, it was so filling with the sides. For our prerolled pastry sheets and to fit the chicken breasts (about 170-180g each) I cut a 9" square pastry piece to about 7" x 9", so as to fully enclose. I used dijon mustard and half slice of boneless leg ham and finely sliced vintage cheddar cheese instead of swiss. Overall a delightful dish, thank you Boo Chef in West Texax, made for My 3 Chefs
