How to make chicken en croute with ham and Cheddar cheese

  1. Slice a pouch into the side of the chicken breast and stuff with the grated cheese. You could use other types of cheese to your taste.
  2. Season the chicken well – but go easy with the salt as the ham is already quite salty.
  3. Wrap the chicken in the ham.
  4. Cut the puff pastry sheet in two.
  5. Optionally put a pile of grated cheese in the middle of each puff pastry sheet before placing the ham wrapped chicken breasts in the centre.
  6. Wrap up the chicken in the puff pastry
  7. Beat an egg or get some milk and brush it over the top of the pastry
  8. Bake at 200 degrees (180 degrees for fan ovens) for 25-30 minutes until pastry is golden and chicken is fully cooked through.
  9. Enjoy with a side of greens.
