Chicken, Proscuitto, Pastry, Cream Cheese ... oh yeah !

so ... a few weeks ago, i found this recipe for pastry wrapped chicken
not only was it wrapped, it was stuffed ! i HAD to try it !!

but ... i changed it a bit ...

2 chicken breasts
2 frozen puff pastry sheets
a couple spoon fulls of cream cheese
prosciutto, 4 pieces (or more if you like)
1 spring onion, chopped
1 egg

Mix together the cream cheese, parsley, spring onion, salt and pepper.

Slice each chicken breast in half through the side of it lengthwise, so it folds open. Put half the cream cheese mixture into each chicken breast and fold the chicken back over itself.

Wrap each breast in 2 pieces of prosciutto. Wrap prosciutto wrapped chicken in puff pastry.

Beat the egg, and brush the top of the pastry with the egg.

Pop them in a preheated oven, and bake at 400F (200C) for 30 to 35 minutes. (or until chicken is cooked)

One of these fed two adults ... with a side of asparagus and potato bake. (potato bake recipe coming soon)
