  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Slice potatoes into ¼" rounds. Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces, if necessary. Zest and halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Remove puff pastry from refrigerator. Using the tip of a knife, draw diagonal lines on pastry, about ½" apart. Draw another set of diagonal lines crosswise from the first, forming a crosshatch. Halve pastry diagonally and refrigerate again. Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Vegetables

    Combine potatoes, 2 tsp. olive oil, and seasoning blend in a mixing bowl until potatoes are coated. Transfer potatoes to one third of prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer on their third. In bowl used for potatoes, combine broccoli, 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until broccoli is coated. Transfer broccoli to middle third of baking sheet and spread into a single layer on their third.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and sear until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove chicken to prepared baking sheet and rest, 1 minute. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Remove puff pastry from refrigerator. Wrap rested chicken in puff pastry, scored side up. Tuck pastry ends under chicken. Be careful! Baking sheet and chicken will be hot.

  4. 4

    Roast the Vegetables and Chicken

    Roast chicken and vegetables in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 18-20 minutes. Top roasted broccoli with cheddar cheese. Rest roasted chicken, 3 minutes. While chicken and vegetables rest, make sauce.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add spinach to hot pan and stir occasionally until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp. water, cream cheese, chicken demi-glace, and pinch of salt and pepper and stir constantly until combined. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir constantly until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in 1 tsp. lemon juice and lemon zest. Remove from burner and rest until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing chicken on sauce. Squeeze lemon wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
