  1. Place chicken breasts on baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 20 minutes at 375.  Rough chop the chicken, set aside.
  2. In a medium-high heat frying pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the pan. Add the bacon, onion, garlic, and Tuscan seasoning. Cook for 6-7 minutes until the onion becomes soft.
  3. Remove from the heat, season, and incorporate the herbs, lemon zest, and breadcrumbs. Let it cool, then crumble in the mince, add one beaten egg, and mix thoroughly. Season the mixture, divide it in half, and set it aside.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375. Grease two large oven trays and line them with parchment paper. Shape half of the mince into a 1½ inch thick log down the center of a puff pastry sheet. Brush the edges with the egg wash and roll it up to enclose the filling.
  5. Brush the roll with egg wash and evenly arrange five sage leaves on top. On a clean work surface, place a sheet of filo pastry, brush it with melted butter, and season it. Position the sausage roll on top with the sage leaves facing up and parallel to one of the short edges. Trim the filo to match the length of the sausage roll, then roll it up tightly to enclose the filling in a single layer. Trim any excess filo. Place the roll on the prepared tray with the seam side down and sage leaves on top. Brush it with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Repeat the process with the remaining pastry sheet, mince mixture, and filo pastry.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes on the middle rack, until they turn golden.
  7. To prepare the chimichurri.  Place all ingredients into a high-sided bowl (to use an immersion blender) or into a food processor.  Blend until a loose paste forms, add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Cut the sausage rolls into your desired portions and serve them with the chimichurri and Dijon mustard.
