Something super simple and so delish - mustard chicken pastries.
Dice chicken breast and marinate in Dijon mustard & cream mix. Don't worry if you don't have time to marinate, you can just cook the chicken in the sauce too. Add tin of peas & corn (drain first).
Using puff pastry in whatever shape you desire (I slice into 4 small squares then fold into triangles) spoon chicken mix into pastry.
Bake in oven at approx 180c can't remember how long maybe 20 mins? (until pastry is golden)
Serve with salad or veg

I've got a delicious one (coincidentally from the delicious magazine).
Rub garlic oil into a chicken breast and then roll the chicken breast in strips of prosciutto. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
When ready to cook, lightly brown the chicken in a fry pan, and than transfer to the oven and cook for approx 15 mins. It is yummy.
It is really nice with toasted breadcrumbs over the top (I just whiz up my left over crusts in the food processor and then lightly toast them). I also made a jus using chicken stock and some white wine and a tiny bit of corn flour (I used the tiniest amount of chicken stock, just gave it a bit of taste).

If I scratch the car I make this for DH and he forgives me.
Use 500g chicken thighs and trim of fat. Cut each into 2-3 pieces. Dust in corn flour and shake off excess. Heat oil in frying pan and just seal the outside of the chicken.
Pour off the oil then put back on low heat. Sprinkle over 3 tbsp white/castor sugar. Stir quickly then add:
3 tbsp soy sauce (kikkoman brand)
3 tbsp mirin (from Asian aisle at the supermarket)
3 tbsp sake (Japanese rice wine, get at bottle shop)
Cook on low about 10 minutes until sauce is sticky and golden.
