1 stirring spoon







Ingredients Required

1 boneless and skinless chicken breast



½ package of puff pastry dough (thawed)



2 cups of enchilada sauce



4 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese



½ can of diced green chilies1 large clove of garlic, minced



1 egg



Salt, to taste



1 medium onion, finely diced

4 tablespoons of low-sodium chicken broth



4 teaspoons of taco seasoning mix



1 tablespoon of water

Method Of Cooking

1. Oil a skillet with about 2-3 tablespoons of oil and let the oil heat up. In the meantime, place the chicken breast on a plate and season it nicely on all sides with salt and pepper. Then put the chicken in the skillet and fry it for 10 minutes (5 minutes on each side) or until it turns slightly brown in color.

2. Once done, pick up the chicken breast with a tong and transfer it to a plate. Allow the chicken to cool down before cutting it. In the meanwhile, add some more oil to the skillet if needed and scrape off brown bits of meat from the pan. Let the oil heat up and then add the onions. Sauté the onions until they are soft and then add the garlic. Sauté for another 30 seconds or until aromatic.

3. After that, add the diced chilies and the chicken stock to the vegetables. Turn up the heat to high and cook the sauce until more than half of the liquid is evaporated. While the sauce is cooking, cut the chicken into small pieces and keep them on the plate. Stir the sauce occasionally for 10 minutes and then add the chicken to the sauce.

4. Taste the mixture and add more salt and pepper if required. Finally, add the taco seasonings and the enchilada sauce to the mixture. Stir for a few seconds to combine everything nicely. Once done, turn off the heat and transfer the filling mixture to a bowl. Insert the bowl in the refrigerator and refrigerate the filling until it completely cools down. Once cold, take out the filling and stir-in the grated cheddar cheese. Give a brief and light stir to mixture to mix-in the cheese.







5. Once the refrigeration is over, preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and spray the baking tray generously with cooking spray. Now take the puff pastries on a lightly floured surface and roll them out a bit with a rolling pin. Then break open the egg in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon of water to it. Whisk the egg with the water to prepare the egg wash.

6.    Once you are ready with the egg wash keep it aside. Now cut the pastries into 2 inch squares and brush each one of them with the egg wash. Once done, spoon out the filling mixture at the middle of each pastry. Then hold the two diagonally placed corners of the pastry and fold them over each other. Fold the other two corners in the same way to secure the filling in that. When all the puffs are ready, brush all of them with the egg wash and then transfer them to the prepared baking tray. Insert the tray into the oven and bake the puffs for 15-17 minutes or until the outside of the puffs are browned.
