Marmite Chicken Roll in Puff Pastry

A special meatloaf for lunch I've prepared for my family instead of the usual rice or noodle. I love ready rolled puff pastry sheet, it really save my day! Just fill up any ingredients you like, rolled up and bake it and instantly you get piping hot puff pastry. Yummy! For this chicken meat roll, I've added additional rolled oats to enhance its taste and texture. My kids never like rolled oats, other than rolled oat cookies. :D They don't even realise what I've hidden in this wholesome tasty meatloaf! ^0^


Marmite mushroom sauce is optional but it really compliments this marmite chicken roll puff pastry! My kids could not stop helping themselves with the rich flavour gravy!
