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!

I made this but changed a few things. I first sauteed onion and pancetta and garlic in butter and olive oil. I removed from pan and cooked the chicken in the same pan. The chicken was very flavorful from the juices in pan. When chicken was browned I removed from pan and added 1/4 cup on white wine to the pan to deglaze it. Added 2 cups of chicken broth to pan and let simmer. I placed chicken in each square of puff pastry added a tablespoon of onion, pancetta garlic mixture and topped it with a slice of Fontina cheese. Wrapped up and placed seam side down on pan. I made creamy orozo (recipe on food.com) and green beans. When chicken was done, i poured sauce over it and served. Was an amazing dish! I also poured a little sauce over the orzo. Family loved it. FYI...scale back on salting the chicken before browning. The salt from pancetta is more than enough. Bona-petite!!!

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.

I love this recipe! I made this last night with rave reviews from all. My DH hates mustard, so instead I mixed some basil, thyme and garlic powder into the cream cheese mixture. We made it with the mushroom sauce and green beans. It is a bit time consuming but I did everything at once versus some of it ahead of time. Cooking the chicken or mushroom mixture ahead of time would make it come together faster. Thank you for posting it!

Was lovely. Had great reviews from my dinner guests. I put less cream cheese after previous comments, but prob could've done with a bit more mustard. Served with dutch potatoes & broccoli & cauliflower, along with mushroom suce. Thanks.
