Chicken Bacon Puff Pockets

Chicken Bacon Puff Pockets

This is a really yummy appetizer I made for New Years but it would also be great for the Super Bowl!  It sounds complicated but it’s pretty easy to make since you can use rotisserie chicken.  Anything with bacon and puff pastry sounds pretty great to me!

Inspired by a recipe from “Our Best Bites” (a wonderful food blog!)

1 cup onion dip (I used fat free)

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1-1/2 cup cooked chicken breast

1/2 cup cooked bacon

3 Tbs finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes

1 egg

1 box puff pastry (2 sheets)

1 T. water

First preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Chop the bacon, tomatoes, chicken (I used an extra breast left over from the saucy dressed up chicken I made the night before but rotisserie would be great too) and mix it in a bowl with the cheese and onion dip.

Sprinkle some flour on a counter top and lay out one piece of puff pastry.  Roll it with a rolling pin until it is about 12″x12,” then cut it into 9 4″x4″ squares.

Put about 1-1/2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture in the center of each square.

Use some water on your finger to wet 2 edges of the square and then fold the pastry diagonally to create a triangle.  Squish the edges together with your fingers and then use the tip of a fork to make  the pretty pattern around the edges. (Repeat these steps with the other sheet of pastry too).

Scramble the egg and brush it on top of each triangle.

Bake around 12-15 minutes, or until they are puffy and golden brown.  Let them cool and then enjoy!

This made way too many for just my hubby and I so I froze a bunch of them before baking them.  When I am in need of a quick, delicious (home-made) appetizer I will just pull them out of the freezer and bake them at 400 for 15-20 minutes and enjoy them all over again!

  1. What a clever idea – especially for a large group of people. I also like ‘Our Best Bites’ and I have their cookbook. My hubby isn’t big on puff pastry, so I’m going to try your recipe with crescent rolls. THANKS!
