    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    Source: Anne Lindsay's New Light Cooking According to the author this recipe is a favorite of Toronto caterers Caroline McRobbie and Laurien Trowell of C'est Cheese Encore. All it needs is a salad and some crusty bread. TIP: For 2 cups of cooked, cubed chicken, microwave 2 large chicken breasts (1 1/4 lb), loosely covered, for 7 minutes on high or until the chicken is no longer pink inside.

      Loved this recipe! I actually did not have a pie pan, (in the middle of moving ) so used more of a baking pan.. The presentation did not look as good as the picture but it tasted delicious! I would probably use a bit more garlic next time and maybe try Craisins instead of Cranberries! Definitely would make again

      This was really great. I had to improvise with reconstituted dry milk because I did not have evaporated milk. I worked just fine, and I also added shredded parmesan to the top of the pie before I topped it with a few more sheets of phyllo. Great recipe, nice presentation!
