    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 430 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Combine cheese, basil, garlic, salt and pepper in processor until smooth and basil is finely chopped.
    3. 3
      Unfold both pieces of pastry carefully.
    4. 4
      Roll out on lightly-floured surface to 14 x 10 inch rectangle about 1/8 inch thick.
    5. 5
      Cut in half crosswise into 7 x 10 inch rectangle; repeat with second sheet of pastry.
    6. 6
      Spread ¼ of cheese mixture lengthwise, in approximate size of chicken breast, across center of each rectangle.
    7. 7
      Place chicken breast over, skinned side down.
    8. 8
      Lift long sides of pastry to meet in center over top of chicken; pinch overlap and short ends to enclose chicken snuggly.
    9. 9
      Trim away excess pastry leaving pinched overlap.
    10. 10
      Arrange seam side down, 2 inches apart, on a greased baking sheet; brush generously with beaten egg.
    11. 11
      Bake until puffed and golden and chicken is cooked through, 18-22 minutes.
    12. 12
      Note: Using Boursin Cheese in this recipe in place of the cream cheese is very nice, too.

      A great meal, thanks for sharing this one. We had ours with a mushroom and white wine sauce which everyone loved the lot. No leftovers here :)

      This was great. I didn't change anything. Was a little worried because I didn't season the chicken, but it came out perfectly seasoned, tasted like roasted chicken. I served with mashed potatoes and pees my family loved it.

      I made for company coming and everyone was impressed with the presentation and the tastes from the inside of the packet. I love using puff pastry and this will be one choice whenever I get a craving for it, which I can tell you won't be far away! Delicious!
