Puff Pastry Chicken Knishes or Turnovers


This elegant chicken appetizer is pretty much a classic and for good reason – it’s a filling crowd-pleaser that never goes out of style. Better yet, it’s dead-simple to pull off especially if you start with store-bought puff pastry.


For Knishes

1. Roll out dough thinly on well floured board, cutting dough into two parts.  
2. Mix ground chicken with all remaining ingredients.  
3. Place half of chicken mixture lengthwise across one dough. Roll up dough over filling. With sharp knife, mark indentations every two inches. Repeat with second dough.  
4. Brush with additional egg. Bake for one hour at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, or until golden. Serve with Mushroom Sauce.

For Turnovers

1. Cut dough into four-inch squares.  
2. Place heaping tablespoon of filling in center of each square. Fold dough to form triangle. Seal edges with tines of fork.  
3. Brush with additional egg. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30–40 minutes. Serve with Mushroom Sauce.
