Camembert and Chicken Parcels December 13, 2008

Ingredients:
Puff Pastry sheets
Garlic
Onion
Chicken breast fillets (1 per parcel, or chop this up if making smaller parcels)
Salt and pepper
1/4 to 1/2 wheel Camembert cheese per parcel

 
Method:
1). Get your frozen pastry out and let it defrost while you make the filling.
2). Take the Chicken breast and make a slice lengthwise to create a split in which you can place the cheese.
3). Fry the Garlic and onion and place some into the split you just made. Cut the cheese into slices (good sized ones) and place a slice into the split as well. Season with Salt and Pepper.
4). Cut a Pastry sheet in half, place the chicken in the centre and fold the sides over to cover the chicken and the ends over. Press down to seal well. Cut a slit in the pastry to allow the steam to escape.
5). When your parcels are done, put them on a tray with the seams downwards. Give them a light spray with oil, or brush the pastry gently with a pastry brush and milk (you can add egg, but it isn’t necessary). Put them in the oven to cook. I like to sprinkle sesame seeds on top to look nice…
6). As the chicken needs to cook through, start them off at about 160C, and cook for about 30 mins, then turn up the oven to high and cook until the pastry is browning. Probably about 15 mins more

 
Small Parcels:
1). Get your frozen pastry out and let it defrost while you make the filling.
2). Take the Chicken breast and chop it into small pieces. Fry this with the Garlic and Onion.
3). Cut the pastry into 4 squares. Wet the edges of the squares and place a small spoonful of fried mixture into one corner. Add a slice of the cheese and fold the pastry over into a triangle, and using the prongs on a fork, make a |||||| pattern around the edges. Cut a slit in the pastry to allow the steam to escape.
4). When your parcels are done, put them on a tray. Give them a light spray with oil, or brush the pastry gently with a pastry brush and milk (you can add egg, but it isn’t necessary). Put them in the oven to cook. I like to sprinkle sesame seeds on top to look nice…
5). They should go in a hot oven (pastry needs to cook in a hot oven or it just goes bleerrgh instead of crispy), cook until the pastry is browning. Probably about 10-15 mins, because the chicken is already cooked, so you’re just cooking the pastry.
