Chicken Pastry with Bacon and Brie

January 22, 2014

Oh. My. Goodness. This recipe is to die for!!! To quote my husband, “what’s not to love about chicken, bacon and cheese?” This is definitely a company-worthy dish. Pair these hot and cheesy chicken pastries with fresh steamed asparagus, a tossed salad, and a chilled glass of white wine for an amazing dinner! Thanks to Rachel Ray magazine for this recipe–I didn’t change a thing.

Ingredients:
4 (6 oz. each) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (I love Emeril’s Bayou Blast!)
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 oz. Brie cheese, cut lengthwise into 4 slices
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Directions:

  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a large rimmed cookie sheet with Pam cooking spray.
  • Pound chicken breasts to even thickness.
  • Season chicken on both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning.
  • In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, heat olive oil.
  • Brown chicken on each side, about 5 minutes, then transfer to a plate and reserve juices in skillet.
  • Cut puff pastry into 4 equal pieces and roll each one out into an 8-inch square.
  • Place a browned chicken breast onto each of the squares toward one corner.
  • Top each with a slice of Brie and 1 Tablespoon crumbled bacon.
  • Fold pastry in half to create a triangle and pinch closed along the edges.
  • Brush with chicken drippings from the skillet.
  • Using a sharp knife, make 2 small, straight cuts on top to allow the steam to vent.
  • Bake until chicken is cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes.

    I made these last night and they were delicious! Of course, after going to the store for Brie, guess what I forgot to buy? Brie! So I made these with Boursin instead and they were still great. I’m looking forward to trying them with the real thing next time. And I think I need to buy the “Maxi” puff pastry, because there wasn’t nearly enough to go around with the regular. Both kids gave it a thumbs up!
