Rachel Rays chicken lovebirds

This makes 8 appetizers if you cut pastry in 8 pieces or 4 main dish servings if pastry cut into 4 pieces.
Don't skip the fig preserves and the fontina cheese. Both make a wonderful pairing of flavors.
this always get raves.
One can also prepare a few hours ahead of time before baking.
Also I brushed with some melted butter instead of an egg wash.
I found out even the 8 appetizer amount could also serve as a main dish if served with a starch and vegetable
