Cheese Chicken Croissants

Many people consider croissants to be sweet pastry. But today we will change this stereotype and cook croissants with chicken fillet and hard cheese. The pastry is very delicious, flavoured and nutritious. I advice to cook a few portions at a time because such croissants disappear immediately from the table.
