- 1 pound chicken breast halves (boneless and skinless)
- 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 shallots (chopped)
- 1 tablespoon marsala wine
- 2 cups fresh mushrooms (sliced)
- 4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons sherry
- 1 teaspoon grated parmesan cheese
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 ounces frozen puff pastry (packet, 17 ¼ ea thawed)
- 12 Swiss cheese slices (1 oz ea)
- 12 ham slices (country, 1 oz ea)
- 1 egg white (lightly beaten)
- 1/2 cup butter (or margarine melted)
- 1/4 cup dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Sprinkle chicken with garlic salt. Cook chicken in a lightly greased nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 7 to 8 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet; chop chicken, and set aside. I grill mine.
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in nonstick skillet over medium heat; add shallots and onion, and saute 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, and saute 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; add cream cheese and milk, stirring until blended. I add Marsala here as well as a good squirt of dijon
- Remove from heat; add chopped chicken. Stir in sherry and next 3 ingredients.
- Unfold 3 pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface; cut into fourths. Roll into 10-inch squares.
- Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on center of each puff pastry square; top with 1/4 cup chicken mixture. Bring corners together over filling, gently pressing to seal.
- Cut remaining pastry sheet into thin strips; tie each bundle with pastry ribbon. Place on a baking sheet; brush with egg white.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden. Whisk together melted butter and next 3 ingredients. Serve over pastry bundles. I didn't do the lemon juice in the butter but I did do it in the ingredients. When you remove the pastry, glaze with butter and mustard.
