Herbed Chicken In Pastry

Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 tablespoon butter

2 sheets frozen Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheet(s) thawed

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon water

4 ounces cream cheese softened

1 tablespoon dried oregano

coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

cooking spray

2 teaspoons dried basil

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
[1]
Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a medium skillet, melt butter and brown chicken on both sides over medium heat, about 5 minutes total. Remove to a plate and chop, when cool enough to handle.
[2]
In a small bowl, mix egg(s) and water.
[3]
Unfold the pastry(s) on a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll dough to a 14-inch square. Cut into equal-size squares (one per serving). Spread equal portions of cream cheese in the center of each square, sprinkle with oregano and basil, and top with chicken.
[4]
Brush the edges of the squares with egg mixture. Fold each corner to the center on top of the chicken and seal the edges.
[5]
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place stuffed pastries seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with egg mixture. Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes
