Very delicious I usually don't do chicken in phyllo since my DH is a beef lover but this was really beautiful recipe. I added some feta to the mix and some red pepper just for a lil heat and used the thick phyllo. Let it cool a bit before eating so we could just pick it up like a sandwich. I will definitely make again. Served with Recipe #412904 Made for ZWT 6 for Looney Spoon Phoodies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and leeks and sauté until the onions are translucent and the leeks are tender. This should take about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, rice, mint, and raisins. Stir.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  4. Put the shredded chicken, eggs, and grated cheese in a large mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. Add the onion and leek mixture and mix well.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  7. Lightly grease a 9"x13" pan. Place a layer of the phyllo sheets on the bottom of the pan. Brush the sheets with the butter/olive oil mixture.
  8. Add the chicken mixture, making sure to spread in an even layer, and top with a layer of phyllo sheets.
  9. Bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
