Method

  1. Whizz the chicken and garlic in a processor until the chicken is minced. Tip in the bacon, sundried tomatoes and basil. Pulse for 5 secs to just mix through. Season well.

  2. Roll the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface and cut in half lengthways. Spread half the chicken mixture along the middle of one of the pastry strips, then roll up the pastry, pinching the ends together to seal. Using a sharp knife, cut into 2.5cm long pieces. Repeat with the remaining pastry strip. Can be frozen, uncooked, for up to 1 month.

  3. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place the rolls on a large baking sheet. Brush with the egg, then sprinkle with seeds. Bake for 20 mins until golden.

Made them for family picnic and they are delicious I love sundried tomatoes. We used minced turkey and we loved it. Doing them again for another picnic planned in June. There 's also a recipe on the May magazine for Father's Day for rolls with chorizo which I can't wait to make for the picnic.

I always get large chicken breasts from the farmers market which still have the fillets attached. This was another way to use them Will be great to use for buffet

Made these today and loved them! I used some tomato paste as I had no sun-dried tomatoes and added 2 tsp of pesto in addition to the fresh basil. My kids loved them dipped in sweet chilli sauce with cucumber wedges when they came home from school. Five stars (it won't accept my 5 star rating..)

coraktp. A rasher of bacon is simply a thin slice, as you'd use if you were cooking bacon for breakfast. Streaky bacon comes from the long narrow part of the rasher and has been detached from the 'eye' (the wider, lean, round bit) It's called 'streaky' because it tends to alternate in lines of fat/lean/fat/lean. They'll be asking for streaky bacon in this recipe to add a little fat because chicken breast is so lean. Just use a couple of slices of fatty bacon and you'll be fine, or failing that a small amount of speck or kassler would do the same job. Anything smoked and fatty.

Home-made sausage rolls using pork or beef mince can be very oily, so I think this variation will be a winner. I'm going to make them to take to a lunch this coming weekend, using turkey mince because it's higher in protein than chicken. I will add chives, parsley, thyme, chargrilled peppers and no-salt tomato puree, then season with pink salt, white pepper, porcini powder and a dash of mild curry powder (you wouldn't know it was there, but curry powder acts as a great flavour boost for lots of things)

Here I am again asking for British English translation help. What is a rasher? What is streaky bacon?

Definitely not your regular sausage roll. They have an unusual flavour and I'm not a fan, but have made them several times now because other people love them. I don't bother with the sesame seeds.

Made these for a picnic, really pleased with them. Didn't change the recipe. Everyone wants me to make them again.

These turned out fab! But instead of chicken I used minced pork and beef. I cooked them first adding some mushrooms and greenpeppers then just whizzed everything up. It made a delicious and filling snack when on the go. I loved the sun dried tomatoes they worked so well. Thanks for the receipe
