Instructions

Step 1 : 

Thaw the pastry according to the package directions.

Step 2 : 

In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crispy, about 8 to 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove it to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain the grease from the pan.

Step 3 : 

Return the skillet to medium heat and add the butter. Add the leeks and red and green onions and saut├ę until caramelized, 15 to 20 minutes. Season with the pepper and a pinch of salt. Stir in the bacon and chicken and cook for 2 to 3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Set aside in a bowl to cool.

Step 4 : 

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour, whisking constantly until a light blond paste forms. Be careful not to burn the roux. Slowly whisk in the warm milk. Bring to a gentle boil, still whisking, until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in the salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Remove from the heat and whisk for 1 minute; the sauce will emit more steam. Set aside 1 cup of the b├ęchamel, covered, to keep warm.

Step 5 : 

Pour the remaining 1┬Ż cups b├ęchamel over the chicken mixture and stir to combine. Let cool.

Step 6 : 

Preheat the oven to 400┬░F. Line a sheet pan with foil.

Step 7 : 

Lay out one sheet of the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 4 equal rectangles. Scoop about ┬Ż cup of the chicken mixture onto the center of each piece. Season each with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 8 : 

Cut the second puff pastry sheet into 4 equal rectangles and set them on top of each filling. Using your fingers, pinch the edges together to form a seam around the filling. Press the edges with the tines of a fork to add detailing. Repeat with the remaining dough and chicken mixture.

Step 9 : 

Carefully transfer the pastries to the prepared sheet pan, keeping at least 1 inch between. Brush them with the beaten egg. Make a small cut on top of each pastry or poke it with a fork. Season each with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 10 : 

Bake until golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve hot, spooning 2 tablespoons of the reserved b├ęchamel on top of each. Garnish with the green onions. Serve immediately.
