Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and black pepper. Cook chicken in the hot oil until golden and almost cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  • Place onion, mushrooms, and garlic in the same skillet; cook and stir until mushrooms lose their moisture and onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in parsley.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Roll out each puff pastry sheet into a 14-inch square on a floured work surface. Cut each sheet into 4 equal squares. Place a chicken breast in the center of each square.

  • Combine cream cheese and Dijon mustard in a small bowl. Spread some of the cream cheese mixture over each chicken breast. Top each with 2 tablespoons of the mushroom mixture. Brush the edges of each square with water and wrap around the chicken. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Brush the tops with the beaten egg.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and slice in half before serving.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Love this. Have made it 2xs. My tip for this recipe is that when it says small it really really means small. Bought a 20oz set of 2 breasts to make this for my husband and I and each breast needed about 2/3 a sheet of pastry to go around. I would prolly say that when it says small it either means a tender or about 1/2 one of the frozen breasts from the 2.5 pound bags The 1/3 of each sheet of pastry that went unused for the recipe got cut into strips and wrapped around asparagus that had been smeared with the left over cream cheese/mustard mix. Seemed to go really well. Throw it on the pan wrapped from raw right along with the chicken and it was plenty done for our liking. Read More

I followed the directions as closely as possible the only thing I changed was the cooking times had to be extended by a few minutes. I think the recipe has potential but it wasn't as flavorful as I had hoped. Read More

Was very good. I added bacon. Try using brie instead cream cheese. Read More
