I chose this recipe out of all the puff pastry recipes because it required less work, and I was short on time. I substituted toated almonds for the walnuts, but other than that, I followed all the directions. The chicken was moist, flavorful, and elegant looking. My husband thought this was fantastic dinner, so needless to say, I'll keep it. Thanks for sharing, Kittencal!
