Kaytucky Chicken

Recently I found this recipe on Pinterest through someone's blog who had posted a different recipe, I believe.  In any event, I tried it and found it quite easy to do, quite delicious, and really quite fast.  A very satisfying recipe, to be sure. 

I recommend you try it.  Don't be afraid of the puff pastry like I was, it's amazing how it bakes and truly "puffs" around the chicken roll. 

This dish will also surely impress your next dinner guests and without all the usual effort!  It's definitely a keeper!

From Kayotic Kitchen - she has some great pics of each step as well!

4 chicken filets
4 frozen puff pastry sheets
4 oz cream cheese (the firm kind)
few rashes of bacon
flat-leaf parsley
1 spring onion
1 large egg

  • Cook up your bacon (I used pre-cooked to save some time).
  • Chop up spring onion and parsley.
  • Add the spring onions, parsley, crumbled up bacon and a good pinch of pepper to 4 oz firm cream cheese.
  • Mix it all up. Adding a little garlic, chili pepper and/or grated cheese also tastes great!
  • Make a fairly deep cut in each chicken fillet. And spread 1/4 of the cream mixture in there.
  • Place the chicken on top of the puff pastry, with the cream cheese side down. Season the chicken with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  • Beat a large egg, and brush a little on the edges of the puff pastry.
  • Just fold them until you end up with small packages. The egg will function as a glue. Lightly brush the top of the puff pastry with the egg as well.
  • Pop them in a preheated oven, and bake at 400F (200C) for 30 to 35 minutes.
