Creamy Roasted Garlic and Chicken Tart with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast boneless, skinless
  • 1 Tbls flour
  • 1 Tbls vegetable oil
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 can crescent roll dough
  • 1 Tbls roasted garlic 5-6 cloves
  • 1 Tbls parmesan cheese fresh grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Vinaigrette:
  • 2 Tbls balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbls olive oil
  • 2 tsp roasted garlic 2-3 cloves
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard or any mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • One scallion sliced for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Salt and pepper the chicken breast and coat in the flour. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brush off the excess flour and place chicken in the heated oil. Brown on both sides and place in oven until it is cooked through to 165 degrees. About 10-12 minutes.
  • Mix the softened cream cheese with the roasted garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • On a greased baking sheet, place the crescent dough in two halves. Pinch the sides a little so it looks defined. Spread the cream cheese mixture in a thin layer over the dough, trying not to get any on the edges. Slice the chicken in strips and place on the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and place in oven for about 15 minutes. Until the dough is golden brown.
  • While the tart is cooking, combine the vinegar, olive oil, mustard, sugar, roasted garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Take tart out of oven and serve with the balsamic vinaigrette drizzled on top and a garnish of scallions.

  1. That looks like fun! I never would have thought to roll out the crescent roll like that, just imagine all the things you could top it with! Thanks for the great recipe and the inspiration. Thanks for linking up to Snickerdoodle Sunday

  2. I am always looking for new appetizer recipes, this looks wonderful! I stopped by via the In and Out of the Kitchen Link up party! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!

  3. Hi Dana,

    this looks really interesting and im looking fwd to trying it out. Can you please tell me what i can use in place of cresent roll dough? (as its unavailable in my country).

    thank you 🙂

      1. Puff pastry is much more flaky and delicate, I’m not sure if it would stand up to the cream cheese and other toppings. If you try it I’m sure we would all love to know if it works out!
