Prep Time7 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Total Time27 minutes
5 Tbsp Sutter Buttes Butter Chicken Simmer Sauce
1 Package Puff Pastry Sheet (contains 2 sheet per package)
1.5 Cups Cooked Shredded Chicken
1 Large Onion - thinly chopped
1 Cup Shredded Cheese – can use any variety as per choice.
Salt – as per taste
1 Egg - whisked
Prep Work: • Thaw the Puff Pastry sheets if kept in the freezer. Once thawed, keep them in the fridge till ready to use. • Pre-heat the oven at 350 F
How to Make the Butter Chicken Pinwheels:
In a large bowl, mix together chopped onion and shredded chicken. Keep aside.
Remove the thawed Puff Pastry sheets from the package. Take 1 Puff Pastry sheet and place on the baking tray.
Unfold it to form a rectangle and smoothen it.
Take 3tbsp of the Butter Chicken Sauce and gently spread it all over the smoothened Puff Pastry sheet (cover edges nicely).
Sprinkle the onion-chicken mixture evenly all over the sauce. Now, sprinkle ½ cup cheese all over it and even everything over the Puff Pastry sheet.
Starting from the edges, fold the stuffed Puff Pastry sheet into a log shape.
Take a sharp knife and cut the log-shaped Puff Pastry into 1.5-inch thick pinwheels. (Each log will make about 10 pinwheels)
Similarly, stuff and cut the other Puff Pastry sheet.
Take each pinwheel and place it stuffing side up and brush them with whisked egg.
Bake for 10 minutes or until golden orange in color.
Once baked, let cool for a minute and then transfer to a serving plate.
