    Used different ingredients. I added some cooked bacon strips and slices of Swiss Cheese in the pocket. I seasoned the outside of Chicken breast with a little Garlic and Onion salt My family loved it. Will make this again  -  19 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Something else. I made this the first time following the recipe but the second time I cooked it I made the chicken breasts smaller and layered tomato, bacon and cheese on top of the chicken then encased it in the pastry.... A nice little variation and it got the thumbs up from the family!!!!  -  04 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Very nice, I added mushrooms, leek and grated cheese to the sauce as suggested, and baked in oven on a raised wire grill  -  14 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
