    Chef Buggsy Mate's Note:

    This is a nice savory chicken sandwich pocket that is full of flavor. It makes a great dish for a sit down dinner or when the guys come over to watch the big game.

      Reviewed for Aus/NZ Forum Recipe Swap June 2011- 5 stars from my husband and daughters for a delicious dinner. Easy to put together and could also be made in advance to be put in the oven at dinnertime. I used plain cream cheese that I added fresh herbs to and one sheet of frozen puff pastry (Australian) for each chicken breast roll. A nice filling for the centre. Baked at 190C. for about 40 minutes in my oven. Photos also being posted. Thanks for another great recipe Chef Buggsy Mate

      My boys both raved these chicken pockets, especially the 10yo. I did like them but I think I'll cut the thyme back a bit next time as I found it a bit overpowering. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts, as that was what I had on hand. Tasty, fairly uncomplicated meal :). Thanks for posting CBM ! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring 2011 :)
