Chicken Wellington

Meaty on the inside, delicately crispy on the outside. This is how chicken Wellington could be briefly described. Give it a stronger sour hint by coating the chicken breast with mustard. Bring a prosciutto and mushroom mixture into the equation and wrap the whole thing in flaky puff pastry. From here it’s all baking to perfection.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
