Puff Pastry Squares

On our trip to Canada over this Fall break, Apa made these and the whole family really enjoyed it. I had to try it so here it is..

1 package (2 sheets) Frozen Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
1 cup Cooked and chopped chicken boneless breasts
1/2 cup Sweet Corn Kernels
1/4 cup Spring onions, chopped
Salt, White pepper and anything else you are in the mood for
2 Eggs, separated

You will need a square dish to make this quicker and easier. Unfortunately, I didn;t had one on hand so bear with me with all this complications!

Grease a pie plate and lay one sheet of pastry over it. Trim edges if need be to cover the surface of the dish.

Just like that.
 Brush it with one of the Egg yolk.
 Here is the Chicken filling. You can do whatever filling you like. I mixed up some chicken along with sweet corn, spring onions, salt and pepper. Mix the egg whites in the chicken.
 Now pur the chicken mixture on top of the pastry sheet.
 Spread it evenly.
 And cover with the second sheet of pastry.
 Trim the corners again to fit the dish. Be creative and use all the leftover trimmings on the top layer. Brush top layer with the remaining egg yolk.

 Cut it into squares or diagonals preferably with a serrated knife. Please DO NOT FORGET to do this.
 Bake it in a preheated oven at 350 until nice and golden on top.
