It's called Kaytucky Chicken and it can be found on Kayotic Kitchen. I am always looking for new chicken recipes, so I decided to give it a whirl.
I mixed up the filling
Stuffed it in the chicken
Wrapped them up and baked them
The Verdict: It was alright. I don't fault the recipe for it not being better, I think it was more my fault. I didn't give the dough enough time to defrost so I tried to defrost in the microwave. That made it super hard to work for, so I wound up with tons of pastry around each piece of chicken. Also, I bought large chicken breasts in order to have room to stuff, but I think it ruined the chicken to filling ratio (too much chicken).
Things to Consider: I think I would attempt this again (although to be honest I haven't even thought about that in the 2 months since I tried it the first time). I would use smaller breasts though, and perhaps just wrap them around/fold them over the filling, Then wrap the whole thing in puff pastry (that's properly defrosted). I liked the flavors together, and the whole thing had potential, I just need to perfect my methods.
From Kayotic Kitchen - she has some great pics of each step as well!
4 frozen puff pastry sheets
4 oz cream cheese (the firm kind)
few rashes of bacon
1 spring onion
1 large egg
- Cook up your bacon (I used pre-cooked to save some time).
- Chop up spring onion and parsley.
- Add the spring onions, parsley, crumbled up bacon and a good pinch of pepper to 4 oz firm cream cheese.
- Mix it all up. Adding a little garlic, chili pepper and/or grated cheese also tastes great!
- Make a fairly deep cut in each chicken fillet. And spread 1/4 of the cream mixture in there.
- Place the chicken on top of the puff pastry, with the cream cheese side down. Season the chicken with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
- Beat a large egg, and brush a little on the edges of the puff pastry.
- Just fold them until you end up with small packages. The egg will function as a glue. Lightly brush the top of the puff pastry with the egg as well.
- Pop them in a preheated oven, and bake at 400F (200C) for 30 to 35 minutes.
