  • (1) 10×15 sheet of puff pastry, cut in half

  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg + 2T of milk or water beaten together


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Roll out each half of puff pastry with a rolling pin.
  • Put half of broccoli at one end of of pastry then layer with ½ of chicken, then ½ of dressing and finally top with ½ of cheese.
  • Brush all edges of the puff pastry with egg wash. Then from the bottom roll up the pastry like a jelly roll. Place seam side down on sprayed baking sheet. Repeat with other half of pastry.
  • Brush the tops and side of each pocket with the egg wash. This will help to give you a golden brown shiny crust.
  • Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20-25 mins or until bottom is brown and top is golden. Let cook for 5 mins then cut in half and enjoy!

Chef’s Note: You can cut pastry into 12 squares fill, fold up and bake for a delicious appetizer that’s good hot or room temperature. The filling possibilities are endless.
