Inside these golden puff pastry "packages", chicken breasts rolled with spinach, herbed cream cheese and walnuts are a savory surprise. I like to serve this elegant entree when we have guests or are celebrating a holiday or special occasion. -Brad Moritz, Limerick, Pennsylvania

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 40 large spinach leaves
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cold water


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Cut a lengthwise slit in each chicken breast half to within 1/2 in. of the other side; open meat so it lies flat. Pound with a meat mallet to 1/8-in. thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Place 5 spinach leaves on each chicken breast half. Spoon a scant 2 tablespoons of cream cheese down the center of each chicken breast half; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon walnuts. Roll up chicken; tuck in ends.
  3. Unfold puff pastry; cut into 8 portions. Roll each into a 7-in. square. Place chicken on 1 half of each square; fold other half of pastry over chicken. Crimp edges with fork. Combine egg and cold water; brush over edges of pastry.
  4. Bake on a greased 15x10x1-in. baking sheet until a thermometer reads 165°, 20-25 minutes.
