    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    pasties

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C.
    2. 2
      Dice the chicken into half-inch cubes.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the chicken and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked. Remove from the heat.
    4. 4
      Roll out the puff pastry sheets and cut each in half (cut the shortest distance through the middle so you are left with two short, fat rectangles not long thin ones).
    5. 5
      Add the pesto sauce and tomatoes to the chicken and stir to mix.
    6. 6
      Spoon equal amounts of the chicken mixture onto the pastry sheets, covering half of each sheet but leaving a gap at the edge to seal the pastry.
    7. 7
      Top the chicken mixture with the grated mozzarella cheese.
    8. 8
      Beat the egg. Brush egg around the inside edge of each pasty then fold the pastry over to seal. Crimp with a fork to reinforce the seal.
    9. 9
      Brush each pasty with the beaten egg.
    10. 10
      Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes (mine take closer to 20) until the pastry is golden.
    11. 11
      Serve hot and enjoy!

      Very good! And super easy, especially if you use pre-cooked chicken. Perfect to throw together after work. I did skip the egg wash due to pure laziness :-) Thank you for posting. Made for PRMR.

      Though this did not do wonders for a diet I am on.. made for luch for the 4 of us, and we loved it. I only had a 1/2 cup mozzerella cheese, so I added a 1/4 cup cheddar cheese to the mozzerella and mixed it up. I did not pre cook the chicken, though I did microwave the chicken for a minute and a half, just to warm it up a little. A very nice recipe. Thanks for posting this. Made for Pick A chef 2012.

      I wanted sooo badly to like this but my whole family didn't!! The dough didn't cook and I left it in oven for a really long time, which made the insides get dry and yucky... My suggestion is use way less dough than it says and barely crimp edges togeathe,r so they seal but don't overlap at all!!
