ingredients

directions

  • Heat oven to 430 degrees F.
  • Combine cheese, basil, garlic, salt and pepper in processor until smooth and basil is finely chopped.
  • Unfold both pieces of pastry carefully.
  • Roll out on lightly-floured surface to 14 x 10 inch rectangle about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Cut in half crosswise into 7 x 10 inch rectangle; repeat with second sheet of pastry.
  • Spread ¼ of cheese mixture lengthwise, in approximate size of chicken breast, across center of each rectangle.
  • Place chicken breast over, skinned side down.
  • Lift long sides of pastry to meet in center over top of chicken; pinch overlap and short ends to enclose chicken snuggly.
  • Trim away excess pastry leaving pinched overlap.
  • Arrange seam side down, 2 inches apart, on a greased baking sheet; brush generously with beaten egg.
  • Bake until puffed and golden and chicken is cooked through, 18-22 minutes.
  • Note: Using Boursin Cheese in this recipe in place of the cream cheese is very nice, too.

    Can this be prepared ahead of time and baked the next day?

    Are you using boneless chicken breast with the skin on? Also, is the chicken raw or uncooked when you wrap it in the puff pastry?

    A great meal, thanks for sharing this one. We had ours with a mushroom and white wine sauce which everyone loved the lot. No leftovers here :)

    This was great. I didn't change anything. Was a little worried because I didn't season the chicken, but it came out perfectly seasoned, tasted like roasted chicken. I served with mashed potatoes and pees my family loved it.

    I made for company coming and everyone was impressed with the presentation and the tastes from the inside of the packet. I love using puff pastry and this will be one choice whenever I get a craving for it, which I can tell you won't be far away! Delicious!
