I went through this phase where I wanted to try Phyllo with everything...eventually I will get more of these recipes posted...but here is one that is really fun for a dinner party or just surprising your kid with some healthy and fun food. I saw a similar recipe in a magazine and used the idea for inspiration.

Directions

  1. In a large pan bring stock, onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, coriander, saffron, red chili flakes and cinnamon to a boil.
  2. Add Green Beans. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add chicken. Season with some salt and pepper and cover. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Remove from heat.
  4. Begin prepping the Phyllo Sheets by cutting the stack in half. Layer 3 sheets, brushing melted butter between each sheet. Repeat this process until you have 4 rectangles ready to fill. I like to do this right on a buttered baking sheet to ensure they don't break as they are moved.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, scoop mounds of the chicken, onion, and green bean mixture into the center of each phyllo rectangle. Sprinkle some of the almonds on top.
  6. Wrap the package by bringing each corner up and to the center. Squeeze together about 1 inch down from the top as if you are making a gift basket and fraying off the top. Spread out the top pieces to look pretty.
  7. Bake in a 400 degree oven until golden brown, about 15-18 minutes.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
