This elegant and easy main dish recipe serves four people for very little money. If you're feeling flush, add some fresh herbs to the recipe. Thanks to M. Michael for this great suggestion!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In medium skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove, drain on paper towels, crumble, and set aside. Drain pan; do not wipe out.

Add olive oil to pan and add chicken and onion. Cook together until onion is tender and chicken is no longer pink, about 7-8 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon to medium bowl.

Add cream cheese and bacon to chicken mixture and mix well; if you're adding fresh herbs, add them at this point. Roll out puff pastry to 12" square. Cut into four 6" squares. Divide chicken mixture among the squares and fold in half. Seal edges and press with fork. Place on cookie sheet and brush with beaten egg.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until deep golden brown. Remove to wire rack and let cool 5 minutes before serving; the filling is very hot!

Amazing, Guest Cara

This dish was so amazing! I made it for my fiancee who works offshore and his sister who came to visit. They both raved about how great it was and my fiancee said this was something he would like to eat on a regular basis. This is also now my new favorite dish! So delicious!!!
