Invented by me!

Great for a dinner party.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pkg Tenderflake Puff pastry ( for main dishes and appetizers) - thawed overnight

1 package chicken breasts ( 4 - 5 breasts cut in half) & cajun spices

2 cups baby spinach

1/2 an onion - finely diced

1 Tblsp butter

pinch of nutmeg, salt & pepper

1 pkg herb goat cheese

Memories of Portugal sauce ( PC or something like this)

1 egg for egg wash

Roast red pepper sauce for plate


Pre-sauté chicken, cook completely, with Cajun spices and some onion.

At the same time, cook the spinach with butter, onion, a smidge of white wine, salt, pepper and nutmeg

Prepare egg wash - splash of water beaten with whole egg

Roll out the puff pastry ( flour your countertop and rolling pin) thinly and cut into 4 or 5 pieces -- there are two packs in the box

Place chicken in the middle of the cut piece - place a piece of goat cheese on top, a spoonful of the spinach mixture ( gently squeezed of juices), and a tsp of the M of Portugal sauce. Rub egg wash around the interior edges of the piece. Bring the edges up into a pouch, pinch top to contain contents.

Place on a Pam sprayed cookie sheet - brush the entire pouch with egg wash.

Cook in 375 oven for 20 - 25 mins or until the pastry is golden brown and puffed.

Place on plate with a dollop of red pepper sauce.

Can be made a few days before hand. Just make sure to re-brush the pastry if left for a while before it goes into the oven.
