Perfect, rich, and creamy Puff Pastry with chicken filling. This is one of my most liked recipes of all time. You ask why? Well, this is because it’s so delicious and includes only 4 major ingredients which are chicken, puff pastry, milk, and flour.

How can you even go wrong with that combination? While I have made this recipe occasionally, you can also make flatbreads, and pasta with it or even use the saucy chicken as a side to your dinner

A 20-minute snack, that is perfect not only for your mid-day munching but also good enough to be served as a flavoursome appetizer at gatherings.

Try out this flakey yet creamy puff pastry delight and you will love how flavoursome it turns out to be.

Key highlights of Creamy Chicken Puff Pastry

One would run out of words while praising the Creamy Puff pastry recipe. It’s like combining flavor, comfort, and a hint of crispy goodness in a flaky packet. Well, this isn’t sufficient, let me share some key highlights of this amazing recipe that make it a staple in my kitchen.

Firstly, the heart of this recipe is the chicken filling, I have used shreds of boiled chicken, this is because the sauce clings better onto these. Chicken and alfredo sauce is a combination made in heaven, and these are the two major ingredients that provide the richness to this recipe. As soon as you bite on one of these pastries you will realise that these are flakiest on the outside and creamiest on the inside.

The creamy white sauce with a garlicky flavor is a hassle-free bet and is the reason behind the chicken pieces becoming so tender and succulent. The sauce perfectly combines with the flakey puff pastry. In this recipe, I have tried to keep the sauce a little thick so that it doesn’t drain out of the pastry sheet. 

Lastly, the Puff pastry sheet which is so easy and versatile to work with is a perfect ground for the chicken and creamy sauce. I have used store-bought ones as they make the whole recipe a quick bite and hassle-free, but if you have time then you can always make them at home before making the chicken filling.

What will you need to make chicken puff Pastry (chicken patties)?

Boiled Chicken Shreds

Shredded chicken

To make this recipe, I have used shreds of boiled chicken. I prefer to use boneless chicken breast pieces for this purpose as they are easy to cut down and give more succulent results than the other pieces. I did not show the process of the cooked chicken I used in this recipe video but I will make a video soon. 


For me, the process of making creamy sauce for any recipe is incomplete without garlic. Garlic is a main ingredient in such sauces because of its pungency and the reason it pairs so well with chicken. I love garlic, and for me, the recipe would not have turned out so delicious without it.

Dijon Mustard

As the recipe is quite simple and has very basic flavors, I have used Dijon mustard to create a combination of flavors that are not only comforting but also something new that you will be trying. As the recipe already has sweetness from the caramelized onions and spiciness from the chillis, Dijon mustard adds an edge of zesty flavor to the chicken filling. 

All-purpose Flour 

I have used all-purpose flour as the base for my sauce, you can even use other types of flour depending upon your preferences and needs. The reason behind using it is that I have used it for making a wide range of other creamy sauces, such as the classic Alfredo Sauce, and it turned out quite easy and creamy, so without experimenting any further I decided to use the same sauce for this Creamy Chicken Puff Pastry recipe.


When working with Puff pastry sheets, egg wash comes as a compulsory ritual. Egg wash makes sure that the puff pastry is perfectly cooked from the top and the inside while enhancing the crispiness and flakiness of the dish.


The secret behind this creamy sauce is using milk in place of water to liquidify the flour mixture. Milk has a great amount of good fat that helps the sauce thicken as it cooks.

Spices / Seasonings

I have used only a subtle and basic combination of spices in this recipe, just a pinch of salt and pepper. This is because I wanted to keep puff pastry and creamy chicken as the main attraction for this recipe.

  • To make this Creamy chicken stuffed Puff Pastry, start by heating some butter in a pan, over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onions to the melted butter and fry them until they turn translucent. Onion and butter combine great, so give the onions time to cook slowly in the butter.
  • Sprinkle salt and black pepper on top of the onions and add garlic and chopped green chilis. Fry for another minute. Make sure to keep stirring as the onions and chilis fry, this will prevent them from burning.
  • Next, add in the all-purpose flour and give it a good mix. Fry the flour for two minutes while stirring it continuously.
  • Mix in some Dijon mustard and slowly pour in the milk. Mix until the flour is well combined with the milk and cook for about 1-2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  • Once the sauce has reached the desired consistency, add the chicken(shredded)and mix them until the chicken is well coated in the sauce. Cook the mixture for about one minute, so the sauce is well absorbed into the chicken.
  • Finish off by topping the mixture with some chopped coriander. Once mixed, take off the gas and let the mixture cool down to room temperature.
  • Crack and whisk an egg in a bowl, set this aside.
  • Cut the ready-made puff pastry sheet into four equal halves and give egg wash to each one of the pieces.
  • Spread approximately two spoonfuls of mixture onto the puff pastry sheet and fold it diagonally. Seal the ends of the puff pastry by pressing them with the help of a fork.
  • Transfer the pastries to a baking sheet / parchment lined baking tray and brush each one of them generously with the egg mixture.
  • Bake these at 220°C / 430°F for about 20-22 minutes in a preheated oven or until the pastry appears to be golden brown and crisp.
  • Once done, take the pastries out of the oven and let them cool down a little, before serving them with your favourite dips.

Quality Ingredients
 For the recipe to turn out like the one from your favourite bakery, make sure to use the best quality ingredients and extra love. This applies majorly to dairy products especially butter as the butter is the very first that you will be putting in the pan, as it will contribute to a better flavour and texture.
Let it rest
When I first made this recipe, everything was going well until I left the pastries to cool on a tray, and boom they got all soggy at the bottom. So to avoid the same mistake and  the pastries turning out crispier, let the prepared Creamy Puff Pastries cool a little on a wire rack, this will prevent any condensation from taking place at the bottom and you will 
Variations to try
There are a lot of amazing variations that you can give to the recipe some of which are: If you are not a fan of green chilis then perhaps you can replace them with serrano pepper or even jalapenos. Whichever you use, each one provides a unique spice level and flavour to the dish.
Another significant variation can be, using a different combination of herbs to create a more complex flavour, Oregano and thyme can be a good one to try.
Lastly, in place of using only milk to make the creamy sauce, try using half milk and half cream, this will give the sauce a richer and creamier texture.

Can I replace the store-bought Puff Pastry sheet with homemade ones?

Certainly, you can always use homemade ingredients in place of the store-bought ones. For homemade puff pastry, the only thing to keep in mind is to keep the dough cool and work it as little as you can. This will prevent the butter from melting and give flakey results. Remember that making puff pastry at home can be a little challenging but turns out to be better than the store-bought ones, both in terms of texture and flavor.

Can I make the Creamy  Puff pastries
 ahead of time?

Absolutely, if you are making a batch of these pastries for later use or as a quick snack that can be ready to munch on at any time then you can prepare them in advance. All you have to do is assemble the pastries first and freeze them on a baking tray. Next, transfer them to a zip lock back and store these for as long as you want. 
These pastries, do not even require thawing, just bake them for a couple of extra minutes and you will have a batch of crispy flakey puff pastries ready to be enjoyed.

What if my pastry doesn’t become golden brown?

Well, in the end, if your puff pastry didn’t turn golden brown, there is no need to panic, you just need to learn the reasons behind it, and I have given solutions to each of the issues below:

The first reason behind your pastry not cooking well could be the temperature of the oven, this can happen when the oven is not pre-heated and the pastries do not cook appropriately to achieve the golden brown color. The solution to this problem can be checking that the oven is at the right temperature which can be checked using an oven thermometer.

This can also happen if you forget to egg wash the pastries before baking them. Egg wash is the main ingredient that results in the browning of the pastries so make sure that you egg wash the pastries well before baking. A thin layer of egg wash will not give the desired results and a thick layer would make them soggy.

And lastly, the quality of your puff pastry can also determine the texture of your chicken filled puff pastries. Ensure that the pastry sheets are fresh and also check for the expiry date.

Crisp and golden on the outside and rich and creamy on the inside these  Puff Pastries get ready in less than 30 minutes and are a perfect snack to much on or even special occasions. And now that you have mastered the art of making this delightful dish, it is time to hit the kitchen and start your preparations.
