MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 2, 2013

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!

My biggest hint: use two chicken breasts instead of four and slice them in half horizontally. The meat cooks fully by the time the crescent rolls become brown (if not sure about the meat being fully done even then, just pop into the microwave for a minute after baking, that usually takes care of it.) Our family really enjoys this recipe!

MY REVIEW

OK, this is a really good recipe and everything but I do like my chicken fully cooked please - I looked at the recipe and decided the chicken would definitely need pre-cooking a bit. I pre-cooked it for about 12 mins and then assembled them and cooked for AGES longer - the pastry and ham bits were a bit past it by the time the chicken was finally done. Next time I will fully cook the chicken first.
