You cannot have enough puff pastry sheets. You can use them for making a dessert with a cup of hot drink or a savory appetizer. You can make puff pastry with your favorite type of jam or any type of fresh berries and chopped fruits, chocolate spread, etc. As for the savory option, you have an endless source of ideas for a filling (meat, fish, and vegetables). If I have a couple of these pockets for lunch, they can keep me full until dinner.

Here are some other recipes for pastry that I like:

Savoury Puffs Ingredients

  • Puff pastry sheets (a package of 1 kg), thawed but still cold;
  • 400 g chicken fillet, cooked;
  • 300 g fresh white mushrooms;
  • 1 onion;

How to make chicken mushroom puffs at home:

  • Take pastry sheets out of the fridge and let them thaw for a while before you can use them for baking.
  • The first step is cooking the filling for our puffs. I prefer to use boiled chicken instead of fried cause it makes pastry juicer and more delicious. Boil chicken fillet in salted water for 20 minutes. Let it cool down before cutting into small pieces.

Cut boiled chicken fillet into small cubes

  • For sautéing, chop onions and cut mushrooms into small cubes.

  • Preheat oil in the skillet. Sauté onion in the skillet on the medium to high heat until soft and clear.

  • Add mushrooms and stir.

Add mushrooms to the skillet

  • Keep cooking the mixture until mushrooms are done. Do not forget to stir vegetables from time to time to avoid sticking.

Keep sauteing until cooked

  • Add boiled chicken; combine it with mushrooms and onion. Cook for an additional five minutes.

Add cubed chicken fillet

  • Add all the seasoning together with sour cream (I know some recipes where you add cream but to me, sour cream adds tangier taste to the mix. Do not overdo with sour cream! It may soak through the pastry sheets and it will result in tearing the puffs apart before they are even cooked).

Add seasoning with sour cream

  • Add chopped fresh herbs to the mix and give a final stir to the mixture. Take the skillet from the stove and let the filling cool down a bit before using it.

Add choppped herbs

  • Roll out the pastry sheet very carefully to make it a little bit thinner and wider. Cut the sheet into six squares of the same size (mine were around 4 by 5 inches (10*12 cm).

Cut pastry sheet into six squares

  • Take each square and cut it in half to make even rectangles. Now, make several cuts on one of them like on the picture.

  • Place a scoop of the chicken mix in the center of the intact rectangular sheet.

Add chicken filling

  • Top it with the other sheet that has holes in it. Seal the puff using a fork. Make sure to press nicely the edges.

Cover a sheet with filling with another sheet and press the ends

  • Cover your baking tray with a parchment paper and place the pastry puff pockets (leaving the space between them). Brush each puff with the beaten egg.

Brush each pocket with beaten egg

  • Preheat oven at 350ºF/180°C. Bake chicken puff pastry pockets for 20-25 minutes. As the filling is already cooked, this time will be enough to bake the dough until golden and crispy. Let them cool down before serving!
