Chicken Breasts in Phyllo Pastry

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Ninna

Easy way to do chicken breasts in pastry. Use refrigerated rather than freezer phyllo pastry, it is easier to work with.

Very simple and easy recipe. Next time I would brush olive oil on each sheet before wrapping around chicken. I would also add another layer of phyllo pastry because it is sooooo yummy! I also wrapped bite size pieces of goat cheese in 3 layers of phyllo and cooked it for 12 minutes with the chicken. I served it on top of baby greens with balsamic dressing and baked asparagus. Yummy dinner -- thanks!
