Make a pocket into the breast and stuff the chicken with the cooled mushrooms.

Halve each sheet of pastry and wrap around each chicken breast. Brush the pastry with a little egg, and cook in the preheated oven for 35 minutes.

Put the mustard and white wine into a hot pan and allow to reduce until you've cooked away the alocohol smell. Add the cream and simmer until the sauce coats the back of a spoon. then remove from the heat and season to taste.

Slice each chicken breast into 3 and serve with a bit of sauce and a little drizzle of olive oil if you like.
