    mmmmmm. This was great! I made it lower cal by using non-fat mayo, and cooking spray instead of butter for the phyllo. I also only had mozz cheese on hand, worked out well. I served this with Recipe #245872 on the side. Thanks for this elegant and tasty dish!

    wonderful presentation. i had fun making it. i cut the recipe down to make just 2 servings, and used multiple sheets (4???) of dough to wrap each bundle. i didn't butter each sheet, just the top of the finished package and it seemed to work fine. the chicken turned out juicy and moist, always difficult with chicken breasts. this seemed a little "light" on seasoning to me and needed a mite of salt, but hubby and i are used to highly seasoned foods. if you are fond of subtile, mild flavors then this dish would probably be 5 star to you. when i make it again, i'll double the seasonings to better suit our family.

    OMG- I can't believe how beautiful and delicious this was! No one believed I really made that FILO work - I used 3 sheets per - buttering each - and it was soooo good! I'll bet you could do all sorts of things in filo wrap - THANK YOU SO MUCH! WE ALL LOVED THIS so much we couldn't eat them fast enough!
