Herbed Chicken in Pastry

Share

This Herbed Chicken in Pastry recipe is a variation of the classic beef Wellington. And I am so thrilled to share with you another fancy way to serve chicken breast that will wow your family and friends. This delicious entrée features juicy chicken breasts enriched by the flavor of herbed cream cheese and wrapped in tender puff pastry.

My recipe starts with chicken breasts cooked in butter. The spices required for cooking them are easy. All you need is freshly ground black pepper. To top things off, wrap cooked chicken breast halves in puff pastry. To add a piquancy, use spreadable cheese blended with aromatic herbs and garlic. This chicken is perfect served up with a sauté of green beans alongside.

To make the Herbed Chicken in Pastry, you will need the following ingredients:
