Mushroom stuffed chicken 'en Croute'

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°-190°C.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan and gently saute the onion, bacon and mushrooms until soft with seasonings.
  • Slit open the thickest part of each chicken breast to make a cavity. Then stuff with the onion mixture.
  • Whisk together the milk and egg. Then paint the cut edge of each chicken breast and press down firmly. Season and place on a pastry sheet. Brush the edges with the egg wash and fold up like an envelope.
  • Then lightly brush all over with more egg wash and place on a lightly oiled oven tray, seam side down. Mark a criss-cross pattern lightly on each parcel and cook in the oven for about 30-35 mins until the chicken is cooked and the pastry is golden.
