I love savoury food wrapped in pastry. These chicken breasts are coated in herbs and mascarpone before being wrapped in pastry and baked. If you don’t want to make your own puff pastry, just use a bought one. You can use any fresh mushrooms if you can’t get fresh porcini.


  • 2 single skinless chicken breast fillets, trimmed of any fat and bits of bone
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 lar


Salt and pepper the chicken breasts well on all sides. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and when hot add the chicken. Cook until nicely golden on all sides. They will finish cooking in the oven but they must have a good crust. Remove to a plate to cool.

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F/Gas 6)<
