Servings 4


  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1 head garlic peeled
  • 1-2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Fresh basil leaves chopped
  • 3-4 chicken breast 1lb, cooked and diced
  • 1 cup mozzarella shredded

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400˚F.
  • While the oven is heating, thaw the puff pastry and peel the garlic. Put the garlic on a baking sheet and bake until soften and golden brown, 10-15 minutes.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Unfold the puff pastry onto the lined sheets and stretch it out a bit. Prick all over with a fork to prevent the pastry from rising too much.

  • Top with the diced chicken and then the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes--until the cheese is melted and nicely browned.
