DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 deg.
  • Lay the puff pastry out to thaw.
  • Lay the chicken breast on a piece of cling wrap long enough to fold back over the breast. Pound the meat with a mallet or heavy skillet. If you are using tenders, lay them side by side with a ½ inch overlap.
  • Thoroughly mix the vegetables (except the cilantro) and cheeses and spread out in a line across the flattened chicken (after folding the cling wrap off the top).
  • Using the bottom of the cling wrap as a tool (much like using a sushi mat), gently roll the chicken into a tube around the mixture. Fasten with toothpicks if necessary.
  • Bring some oil to a high heat in a skillet and carefully place the roll in the skillet. Brown on all sides, being very careful when turning the roll.
  • Preheat a cookie sheet in the oven.
  • Roll out the pastry to insure that the seams don’t separate. Place the seared roll in the center of the pastry sheet and sprinkle with the cilantro.
  • Fold the pastry up and over the roll and press the overlap together. Pinch the ends to seal the loaf.
  • Brush the top with the remaining oil to get a nice browning.
  • Place on the cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes, watching closely after 20. Ovens vary.
