Greek Spinach Feta Chicken Pockets

I've seen this recipe on a few recipe sites, but they're all a little different. It sounds really delicious and easy to make. It's sort of like a savory pot pie but with puff pastry (instead of dough), and it's shaped somewhat like a Hot Pocket.

Ingredients

17 oz
package puff pastry, both sheeets thawed
4 oz
cream cheese, softened
10 oz
package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
2 c
cooked and shredded chicken
1/2 c
chopped green onions
2 tsp
finely minced garlic
1 c
crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 c
shredded mozzarella cheese
1 large
egg, beaten (for brushing on pastry top) - optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a cookie sheet (or line with parchment paper), and set aside.
2
Unfold both sheets of puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface. Roll them out a little bit if they look small.
3
Without tearing the pastry, gently spread softened cream cheese evenly over pastry sheet, leaving about 1/2 inch space along the edges.
4
Evenly distribute the well-drained spinach over half of the puff pastry sheet (width-wise), leaving about a 1/2 inch space along the edges. Sprinkle the garlic evenly over the spinach layer.
5
Next, evenly distribute chicken and green onions over the spinach, again leaving a 1/2 inch space around the edges.
6
Evenly sprinkle crumbled feta and shredded mozzarella cheese over the top of the chicken, leaving a 1/2 inch space around edges.
7
Fold over the half of the puff pastry that doesn't have the ingredients on it. and seal edges tightly.
8
Transfer to prepared cookie sheet. If you want a browned shiny top on the pastry, brush some of the beaten egg over the top of the puff pastry.
9
Bake in preheated oven (400°F) for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is lightly golden brown. Cut into slices, and serve hot.
