    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a recipe that I make to serve to guests, but I have made it many times for my family, just a little time consuming , but not at all difficult to make. If you have never worked with phyllo pastry, this recipe is definitely reason to try. Just make certain to keep the pastry covered so it will not dry out. This dish is delicious served with potatoes and a mixed green salad.

      Pretty good. I'll make it again but, without the spinach, I might try chopped broccoli instead.

      This had a wonderful flavor. It was very easy to make and I would definitely make it again. I think I would season the chicken with more than salt and pepper next time though.
