cost per recipe: $9.78

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked
  • 1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 can (11 ounces) Mexican style corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 5 ounces (1 package) mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • Tips

    • Serving Suggestion: Serve with home-style coleslaw.  For dessert serve chilled key lime pie.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

  • Step 2

    Stir the chicken, cheese, corn, bread crumbs and picante sauce in a medium bowl.

  • Step 3

    Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 16x12-inch rectangle. With the short side facing you, spoon the chicken mixture onto the bottom half of the pastry to within 1-inch of the edges.  Starting at the short side, roll up like a jelly roll.  Place the pastry seam-side down onto a baking sheet.  Tuck the ends under to seal.  Brush the pastry with the egg mixture and sprinkle with the parsley.  Cut 2-inch slits 2 inches apart in the pastry top.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.  Slice and serve warm on the salad greens with the sour cream, if desired.

    Easy to make. I did change it by using canned chicken and crab meat. We all enjoyed it very much!
