Chicken en croute

Chicken breast stuffed with sun dried tomatoes, fresh, chopped basil and buffalo mozzarella, wrapped and baked in puff pastry. To cook this dish we used ready rolled puff pastry sheet, they’re available in most supermarkets. The dish is very easy and quick to prepare and the chicken is very moist thanks to cooking in a pastry wrap. Remember to brush the pastry with beaten egg before baking, to get the golden colour. Serve with rocket and tomato salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Enjoy.
