MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2015

"I used two chicken breasts and cut each one in half as one person suggested. I also pre-cooked the chicken for 20 minutes. They still needed an extra 10 minutes longer than the recipe stated, so I placed foil on top for the extended time as someone else suggested to keep the rolls from becoming too brown. Delicious meal! Will probably try chicken cutlets next time and see how that works!"

"Excellent recipe to prepare for guests or for a family Sunday dinner. It is easy to make, looks elegant, and tastes very good. I used thinner chicken breasts and cooked about 5 to 8 minutes longer than recipe indicated and it came out perfect."

"Haven't tasted it yet but just put it in the oven, the only modification I made was to use chicken cutlets instead of full breasts to cut the fat & cholesterol . This is the easiest dish I've made in a long time! Plus it's pretty, even before it's cooked!"

"I make a very similar recipe but I do pre-cook the chicken first; I spread the onion-chive cream cheese mixture on 1/4 sheet of puff pastry; top with chicken, then I wrap swiss cheese slice into the ham first to prevent it from leaking out, then wrap the puff pastry like a present. My family loves this meal!"
