Puff pastry is the BEST store bought shortcut! Stuff it with a savory mixture of poultry, cheese, and broccoli, and you have a delectable lunch, easy dinner, or even an impressive party appetizer.
There’s no way to go wrong with a meal that consists of a crispy crust stuffed with delicious ingredients. There’s definitely nothing wrong with taking shortcuts these days either. Most of us are feeding extra mouths for 3 meals a day – kids doing virtual learning or spouses working from home. It’s exhausting! This beautifully stuffed puff pastry pocket is however, not exhausting.
No family gatherings or guests for Thanksgiving this year means extra leftovers. My grocery store decided to amplify my leftovers by giving me an 18 pound turkey instead of a 12-14 pound one! I will be using my leftover turkey to stuff into this puff pastry pocket for many lunches to come. Other options for meat? Rotisserie chicken. Sous vide chicken early in the week to use for recipes like this. Crock pot shredded chicken.

Cheesy Chicken (or Turkey) and Broccoli Pockets
A quick but impressive lunch, dinner, or appetizer! You can even make the filling ahead of time, and throw it all together when you're ready.
