Chicken Boursin Bundles


4 ounces Boursin garlic and herb cheese*

2 cups chopped cooked chicken

1 tablespoon chopped onion

2 tablespoon milk

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed

1 egg, beaten well

1 teaspoon water

6-8 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Combine Boursin cheese, chicken, onion, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Roll out puff pastry into 1 large square.  Cut that square into small  squares.
  3. Spoon 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture into the center of each pastry square.  Bring the four corners together in the center, pinching seams to seal.  Twist top to make it look like a flower, bending back petals.
  4. Beat the egg with water in a small bowl.  Brush the top of each pastry bundle with egg wash.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top of each bundle.
  6. Place bundles on a parchment covered baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes (less if using convection heat) or until golden brown.
