Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ pound chicken breast or tenderloins, skinless boneless
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 6 oz spinach
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 sheets puff pastry thawed

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.

Make chicken and spinach filling

  • Heat olive oil in a medium skillet on medium heat.
  • Add chicken breasts or tenderloins.  Season with a pinch of salt and paprika.  Cook for about 5-10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.  Shred the chicken.
  • Add spinach to the same skillet.  Cook, constantly stirring, on medium heat until the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Add shredded Parmesan cheese and combine with the chicken and spinach.

Assemble puff pastry

  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut each puff pastry sheet into 4 rectangles.  You will have 8 rectangles in total.  Place these rectangles on a parchment paper lined sheet.
  • Place chicken and spinach filling on one half of each rectangle.  Make sure to not overfill.  You might have leftover filling.
  • Fold the other half of each rectangle over the filling to close.  Pinch the edges to seal.  You can quickly dip your fingers in a glass of water to help seal the edges.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until the puff pastry is golden brown.
