“Chicken breasts with herbed cream cheese, wrapped in puff pastry and baked. A very easy but delicious dish, good for company! This recipe is derived from a dish my mother-in-law makes.” - by BURKH007
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and place in hot oil; cook for 5 minutes, turning to brown evenly. Remove skillet from heat.
- Roll out pastry shells as thinly as possible so that it is big enough to fit around a chicken breast. Spread 2 ounces of cream cheese on one chicken breast, place in the center of a pastry sheet; fold the pastry around the chicken, and pinch the pastry edges together very tightly to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Place the pastry-wrapped chicken breasts on a greased baking sheet.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

"Easy. However, I cooked the chicken completely before "stuffing the pastry" and the pastry is what needed the extra cooking time, no less than 15 minutes, but probably more. I added mushrooms, Yummy! ..." See moreOverall good, not quite a 5, but very good!"
"This dish sounded like a nice recipe for a quiet, romantic dinner. Unfortunately, 12-15 minutes isn't even close to long enough to cook the chicken breasts. Even after browning, when they're wrapped..." See more in the pastry they take a good 40 minutes to cook through. Everything else was cold by the time they were done - not to mention they were somewhat flavorless. A let down."
