This is not at all hard to put together, it's an amazing dish to serve to dinner guests and I have done so many times over the years and have always receive rave reviews from everyone at my table and you will too! --- to save time saute the onion, garlic and mushrooms up to a day ahead, the cream cheese and Dijon mustard mixture may be increased slightly -- I always serve this with Creamy Mushroom Sauce/Gravy drizzled over or on the side of the plate, you will *love* this!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the chicken breast with seasoning salt and pepper on all sides.
  2. Heat butter and oil in a skillet.
  3. Brown the breasts on all sides until almost completely cooked through; transfer to a plate.

We liked this very much. the first one i douldn't get the pastry to wrap around it. I used 2 large chicken breasts and fileted them to make 4 servings and 1 sheet of pastry. the second "wrap" i cut the chicken breast in half and tried that way still no dice. the last two I did a little different than instructed, I spread the cream cheese mixture (which is where I put the parsley -by the way) topped that with the mushroom/onion and then place sliced pieced of chiken on that then wrapped and sealed so the the "stuffing" would be on top while the seal was on the bottom. The 2 in which the toppings ended up on the bottom were a little soggy on the bottom when done. I didn't have any wine to make the suggested gravy, instead sauteed some mushrooms in a little EVOO and then added a dry brown gravy mix (mccormicks i think) that i had in the pantry- it was a nice sauce. also had with my own #357596 roasted potatoes and onions and some steamed brocolli and cauliflower. i very nice meal! thanks for sharing

Great! IMO - the puff pastry works better for this recipe if you use 6 chicken breasts for the amount indicated and I also found it easier to work with when I did NOT wet the edges of it. Thank you for sharing this terrific recipe!

This recipe went over really well with one exception: we used too much cream cheese mixture per wellington so it was REALLY overpowering. We decided to assemble them: pastry, onion/mushroom, cream cheese, then chicken, fold up the pastry and flip over on the sheet--- it looked nice when it was done.
