You might have noticed the recipe video I shared on Facebook. This short video lists all the ingredients and steps to take, to make Chicken Cordon Bleu Pockets. Simply use thawed Tenderflake Tart Shells as top and bottom envelopes for the mixture.

 

After baking you have tasty chicken cordon bleu inside a flaky pocket. So delicious! My kids asked for seconds of this one, and that’s when I know I have a winner of a recipe.

For us as a meal, or using small tart shells and turning it to an appetizer to impress – this is one recipe you’ll want to make time and again.

It’s another recipe I developed for the Tenderflake Test Kitchen which uses Tenderflake Rolled Puffed Pastry Sheets, easy-to-use flaky sheets of pastry made from simple ingredients developed to give that classic homemade taste.

Both of these recipes feature that flaky crust which is so comforting!
