Add the dried fruits, mix well and reduce heat to medium. Let cook for 10 minutes or until the fruit is tender, stirring occasionally. Reduce to simmer stirring occasionally. On a lightly floured surface, cut the puffed pastry into 4 identical pieces. Reserve remaining dough for another use. Using a paring knife, score a 1/2-inch border around each square. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees, and continue to bake until puffed and golden brown, about 10 minutes more. Meanwhile, season chicken with salt and pepper.

Reduce heat to medium-low; cover, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate; cover to keep warm. Using the back of a spoon, flatten inside portion of each pastry square. Place one chicken breast on top of pastry. Top with fruit mixture. Serve immediately.
