Garlic Chicken in Pie Crust

    50 mins

    The puff pastry I used is just like the ones used for goat or veggie puffs. Chicken breast is stuffed with a delicious garlic butter, wrapped in crust and served on top of a mouth watering creamy garlic sauce. Not suggested as a dinner for first dates!!

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Mix all the garlic butter ingredients together into a smooth consistency.
    3. Spoon evenly onto each chicken breast and fold end of chicken over to cover.
    4. Wrap the chicken breast in puff pastry and cook in preheated oven for 40 mins.
    5. About 10 minutes before chicken is cooked, prepare the garlic sauce.
    6. Melt the butter and garlic on a low heat in a saucepan. Remove from heat and stir in the flour until it forms a paste. Return to a medium/high heat and add milk and parsley. Stir continuously until thick.
    7. When chicken is cooked and the sauce has thickened, poor the sauce onto a plate and place the chicken puff on top of it.

    Used different ingredients. I added some cooked bacon strips and slices of Swiss Cheese in the pocket. I seasoned the outside of Chicken breast with a little Garlic and Onion salt My family loved it. Will make this again  -  19 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Something else. I made this the first time following the recipe but the second time I cooked it I made the chicken breasts smaller and layered tomato, bacon and cheese on top of the chicken then encased it in the pastry.... A nice little variation and it got the thumbs up from the family!!!!  -  04 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Very nice, I added mushrooms, leek and grated cheese to the sauce as suggested, and baked in oven on a raised wire grill  -  14 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
