Wellington has an easy crescent wrap and a flavour twist of chicken, spinach, cheese with a creamy sauce.


  • 1 box (300 g) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sliced green onion stems (about 10 green onions)
  • 170g cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup (250 mL) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 can (8 count) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Original Crescents
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (8 oz/227g each), cut in half
  • 1 cup (250 mL) half and half (cream)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Microwave frozen spinach as directed on box; squeeze to drain. In food processor, place spinach, 1/2 cup of the onions, cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the Gorgonzola cheese, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover; process 20 to 30 seconds or until smooth.
  2. Lightly spray 10x15-inch baking pan with sides (jelly roll pan) with nonstick cooking spray. Unroll dough; separate into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Press each to form 6x5-inch rectangle. Reserve 1/3 cup of the spinach mixture. Spoon 1/4 cup remaining spinach mixture in center of each rectangle.
  3. Between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, flatten each chicken breast half to 1/2-inch thickness. Place each chicken breast on top of spinach mixture, pressing down slightly. Bring 4 corners of dough together on top of each chicken breast; pinch top and sides to seal. Place seam sides down on pan.
  4. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°F.
  5. Meanwhile, in 1-quart nonstick saucepan, bring half-and-half to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in reserved 1/3 cup spinach mixture, remaining 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese, 1/3 cup of the remaining onions and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Serve warm sauce over Wellingtons. Garnish with remaining green onions.
