    Baby Kato's Note:

    The apricot lemon glaze makes a nice contrast to the savoury filling. This is very easy to make and looks very impressive. This dish is wonderful served with fresh fruit, a simple salad and rice.

      Thanks a lot Kato for this delicious and light dinner.This was very easy to assemble and had been highly appreciated. I sprikled some sesame sead on the pies and I added little more thyme and cheese as we love this with chicken.This is a really easy but surprisingly good recipe!

      Awesome!!!! I thought this might have been a bit fiddly to prepare as I do not use phyllo pasty but it was not bad at all. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and I found it quite quick to make, with a 5 star restaurant quality end result. My son could not stop raving how good the chicken was especially how moist, as he often finds chicken dry. I loved the mushroom mixture that went on top of the chicken and the smell whilst preparing was heavenly. I used Gruyere for the cheese and it was so delicious I mean yum, yum and yum. This is a guest worthy, totally impressive dish that people will think that you have spent hours making and is also not over the top in price to prepare. I can highly recommend and we will definitely be enjoying this again Baby Kato, huge thumbs up from my family, would award more than five stars if I could.

      If I had my way I would award 5 stars just for the filling (could easily see it being put into some baby mushroom caps with a sprinkle of extra cheese and then grilled/broiled and served as an apertizer) even though due to dietary requirements I had to sub 3 spring onion/scallion (mainly white and some green) for the shallot and used a field mushroom which I believe is the equivalent of a portabella and as unbeknown to me the gremlins had finished off the swiss I had to use a tasty cheddar. I would have loved to have made the glaze but could not get a diabetic friendly preserve/jam in apricot or peach but will keep looking as I feel this would so really add to this recipe. I was also lazy and just slit the breasts, stuffed and wrapped in the phyllo and they took 35 - 40 minutes to cook through in a fan forced oven at 175c. Thank you so much Baby Kato for such a terrific recipe. Made for 123 Hit Wonders 2008 which will retire it from this game, please give it a try. UPDATE - the filling is superb in stuffed mushrooms, just went up another point for versatility.
