Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Mix 2 tsp. mustard and 1/2 tsp. each pepper and garlic powder; spread onto chicken.
Heat oil in large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 1 min. on each side. Transfer chicken to plate, reserving drippings in skillet.
Add mushrooms to reserved drippings; cook, stirring frequently to loosen browned bits from bottom of skillet, 6 min. Add leeks; cook, stirring frequently, 6 min. or until tender. Add cream cheese; cook, stirring, 2 min. or until melted. Add thyme, and remaining mustard, pepper and garlic powder; stir until blended. Remove from heat. Return chicken to skillet; cover with foil.
Unfold puff pastry sheet on cutting board; cut 3 strips along fold lines, then cut each strip crosswise in half to make 6 small rectangles. Cut each rectangle diagonally in half; place in single layer on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake chicken and pastry triangles 20 min. or until chicken is done (165°F) and pastries are golden brown.
Top chicken with pastries before serving.
Purchasing and Storing Mushrooms
Look for mushrooms that are firm and uniform in color, not wet or slimy. To store, remove any plastic wrap from the mushroom package and cover loosely with a paper towel before refrigerating. For maximum freshness, use within 5 days of purchase. Contrary to popular belief, it's perfectly acceptable to rinse your mushrooms under cold running water, especially if the mushrooms will be cooked. They actually absorb very little water during rinsing. Just be sure to pat them dry with a paper towel and use immediately. (Storing after washing can cause the mushrooms to spoil more quickly.) Have some mushrooms that are a little past their prime? Older, blemished mushrooms are perfect for making our Creamy Mushroom Soup.
