    Chef #182259's Note:

    Tender & moist chicken breast with a rich topping of carmelized onions, sauteed portobello mushrooms, and spinach, enclosed in a flaky, golden phyllo package - a fabulous "company" dinner, served with a pretty salad & perhaps a rice pilaf. SOOO good!

      This is an excellent elegant meal, at first I thought it looked a little complicated, but it really wasn't, and I knew I would love it, because of the combination of mushrooms, carmelized onions, chicken and phyllo, wasn't to sure about the spinach, but it was great!!!
