Puff Pastry Chicken

If you are looking for an easy week night dinner that will impress the fam, this is it! I first had this dish years a go at a friend's house.  When I realized how simple it was to make, I knew it should not be saved simply for guests! Serve along with some fresh green beans and a creamy mash potato and dinner is on!  Enjoy!

4 medium chicken breasts
A few pinches of salt and pepper
1 package boursin cheese (you can find in the specialty cheese section at your grocer)
1 package puff pastry, thawed
1 egg
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375.  Unroll puff pastry and cut each sheet in half, set aside.  In the meantime, using a meat tenderizer flatten chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper.  Place chicken breasts towards the end of each pastry sheet.  Spread equal amounts of cheese over each great.  Wrap the chicken with the pastry and pinch the edges closed.  Quickly whisk one egg and brush over puff pastry with a pastry brush.  Spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray and place the wrapped chicken on top.  Bake for appox 40 mins.
