¾ cup milk

½ cup chicken broth

1 package puff pastry containing 2 sheets (400g)

Salt and pepper


Step 1:

Cut the chicken into small cubes and the mushrooms in slices. Heat a saucepan and cook the onion and bacon. Then add the chicken to the mixture until it is cooked. Then put the mushrooms, salt and pepper. After about 2 ‘, sprinkle with the flour and stir well until it is spread everywhere. Remove from the heat, add the broth and milk, bring to heat and stir until it becomes a nice mixture. Allow it to cool slightly.

Apply one puff pastry sheet to the workbench and cut it crosswise, so you will have four equal pieces in front of you.

Step 5:

Once cooked, let them rest for about 10 ‘and serve.
