These puff pastry parcels are delicious! Chicken breasts are marinated with garlic, then layered with basil pesto, spinach, Feta cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, before being wrapped in a buttery puff pastry and baked. Serve with a side salad.
If you can't find herbed Feta cheese, buy plain Feta and add a pinch of dried basil, oregano or dried Italian herbs.
A truly lovely, easy chicken dish. Will definately make these again but will leave out the sundried tomatoes next time as I found these a bit over powering, taking away the garlic flavour but I will serve with a fresh tomatoe salad instead. Such a great way to have your chicken breast but with a lot more flavour. Thanks for the inspiration. - 28 Jul 2014
This meal was FABULOUS! I made some small changes-- mostly to portion- I took one good sized boneless breast, cut in in half and then only used one pastry puff sheet cut in half. It came out beautiful looking *wish I took a picture for everyone* and tasted like heaven. The herb feta was perfect and the sun-dried tomatoes really added nice flavor. Whoever invented this meal- I want to raid your recipes! - 03 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was excellent. Even the kids liked it. I did not marinade it in the egg yolk, didn't have the time, and I am not sure why you would even need too. The chicken was very tender, cooking time was right on. After reading the reviews I chose to cut the puff pastry in half. I then rolled it out with a rolling pin since someone else said it was hard to get the pastry around the chicken. After I rolled it, the pastry fit very well around the chicken and I sealed up the edges with some warm water to make it stick. All the flavors work well together. I will definetly make this again. - 04 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
