    SVELTE's Note:

    This recipe was assembled montage style from a few others. It grew into itself and turned out so fabulously that I had to post it. It does have quite a few ingrediants, some are optional for taste but it is super easy to make! It's great to serve alone, over cooked noodles or with a fine green salad.

    1. 1

      Chicken Filling : In a pan over medium heat with a table spoon of olive oil saute minced onion, celery, garlic & mushrooms until tender, about 6-7 minutes. Turn off heat. Add chopped cilantro, rosemary, basil and sun dried tomatoes, stir to wilt fresh ingredients, if using dried just toss in the ingredients. Then stir in cream cheese & chili paste, allow to melt thouroughly and then set aside in pan.
