Mediterranean Puff Pastry Chicken

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"Chicken marinated in garlic, layered with sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, spinach, and feta cheese, and wrapped in flaky puff pastry. Delicious! I cook a lot and often look for other recipes, so I decided to try my own simple dish. It was a hit!"

  1. In a small bowl, use a fork to combine crushed garlic and egg yolk. Place chicken breasts in a shallow glass dish and spread both sides with egg mixture. Cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours, or overnight (recommended).
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Place one half of the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured board. Place 1/2 cup spinach in the center of the pastry sheet. Remove one chicken breast from marinade, shaking off any excess, and place on top of spinach. Spread 1 tablespoon pesto over chicken, layer with half the sun-dried tomatoes, sprinkle with half the feta cheese, and top with 1/2 cup spinach. Fold pastry sheet around chicken, using fingers or fork to seal pastry seam. Place chicken seam side down on baking sheet. Repeat steps with the second half of the puff pastry sheet and remaining chicken breast.
  4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Test for doneness by cutting through center of chicken breast; if juices run clear, chicken is cooked.

Very easy and tasty. It makes for a nice impression. It was a bit too bland for my hubby and I probably won't make it again. One comment though, on the other reviews. It's somewhat unfair to de...

This was excellent. Even the kids liked it. I did not marinade it in the egg yolk, didn't have the time, and I am not sure why you would even need too. The chicken was very tender, cooking ti...

This ia a wonderful recipe, however, I would like to point out that puff pastry and filo are not the same and although either will work, the taste and appearance is different.

My boyfriend goes to school out of town and ever since I made him this recipe he insists I bake it for him each time I visit! I've even prepared it a few different ways that have gotten rave re...

I only wish I could give this recipe more stars! It is so flavorful and the chicken is moist and delicious. I followed the suggestions of others and used 1/2 of a puff pastry sheet for each ch...

This was great. I used pre-cooked roasted chicken strips since that's what I had on hand, and used tomato basil feta omitting the sun dried tomatoes. I also used only one pastry sheet as other...
