Chicken & Mushroom Swirls

You can be really creative with puff pastry, it can have sweet fillings, savory fillings or anything you want. Chicken & muhroom swirls is my version of chicken puff pastry and every time I made it my guests loved them 🙂



  • 2 puff pastry sheets (thawed but chilled)
  • Some cream cheese spread (I use Philadelphia)
  • Some sesame and nigella seeds
  • 1 egg and 4 tbspns milk (egg wash)
  • Some parmesan or cheddar cheese


  • 1 chicken breast (boiled and shredded)
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 3 tbspns flour
  • 100 gms butter
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • Salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • ½ tspn white pepper
  • ½ tspn chicken salt


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Apply cream cheese on each puff pastry sheet and Cut each one of them into 6 long strips.
  • In a saucepan melt butter and add flour. Stir until the four is well combined with butter. Gradually whisk in milk and make a thick paste. Remove from flame.
  • Season with all the spices and add chicken and mushrooms to it. Mix and make a spread consistency mixture. Apply this mixture on each strip of the pastry sheet. Sprinkle some cheddar or parmesan and roll each strip into a swirl.
  • Place all 12 swirls onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush the egg wash on them, sprinkle some nigella seeds and some sesame seeds and bake for 30 – 35 minutes.
  • Take the tray out, let it cook for 5 minutes and the carefully transfer each swirl on the serving platter.
  • Serve hot.
