Savory Chicken Triangles

This recipe came from a cookbook from my childhood church. I have made it for many years and it is wonderful. The original recipe was called "Savory Crescent Chicken Squares" because one of the ingredients was Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. This time, however, I used Pepperidge Farm puff pastry, and it was WAY better. I also use more cream cheese than the original recipe. You could make a smaller version of these for a fabulous appetizer.

Savory Chicken Triangles

1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tbsp butter
1 pkg frozen puff pastry dough
4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
7 oz cream cheese, softened
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion in butter until tender. Combine with chicken, cream cheese, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

Roll out one sheet of dough and cut into 4 squares. Place about 3/4 cup chicken mixture across middle of dough. Brush edges with water and fold over to form triangles. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 400 for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Yield: 8 servings

Combine filling ingredients and set aside. On a floured surface with a floured rolling pin, roll out dough:

Cut into 4 squares:

Place chicken filling diagonally across each square. Seal edges with water:

Fold over and place on greased cookie sheet, Bake at 400 for about 25 minutes:

I served them with fresh tomatoes and field peas :
