Chicken and Pesto Pasties

Saw this recipe in Sainsburys. It's one of those Jamie Oliver ones that you can pick up in store:

Left over roast chicken (or I just roasted 2 chicken breasts)
1 roll puff pastry

Roll out pastry and cut into 2/4 rectangles (depending on how many you making)
Spread a teaspoon of pesto onto each pastry rectangle
Put chicken on one side and top with some tomato slices
Fold over and crimp corners to seal
Brush with egg or milk
Bake in oven for 20 mins (chicken is pre-cooked so doesn't need much cooking)

I served this with Jamie's creamy baked leeks but you could serve with new potatoes and broccoli.
