READY IN: 2hrs




  • Brown the ground chicken/turkey on a lightly oiled skillet, remove when browned.
  • Brown the onions, turn heat down to medium.
  • Add cooked rice, mix.
  • Return the chicken to the pan& add the peas, then the almonds.
  • Mix the honey& balsamic vinegar, stir well, add spices, stir again.
  • Pour this over the chicken mixture, stir well cook 3 minutes longer and remove from heat.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan.
  • Remove 3 sheets of phyllo pastry and lay them flat with the narrow end toward you (cover the remaining Phyllo with a damp towel).
  • Flip up 2 sheets of Phyllo and lightly paint the bottom layer with butter, flip the next sheet down and paint it with butter, then the remaining sheet and again paine it with butter.
  • Cut the 3 layer sheet into 6 long strips (I use a cleaned edge of the phyllo box to keep the cuts straight).
  • Put a generous tbsp of the chicken mixture on a corner of a strip nearest to you.
  • Fold the corner with the filling on it up and to the right to form a small triangle, now continue to work your way up the strip by flipping and folding until you reach the top.
  • Paint the outside lightly with butter and place on a cookie sheet.
  • Continue until all the mixture and Phyllo are used.
  • Bake at 350F for apprx 15-20 minutes turning them once during the baking.
  • Serve Hot.
  • Your other option is to freeze them unbaked.
  • Place a single layer of"Bites" on a cookie sheet and freeze them, remove from cookie sheet and place them in single layers with plastic wrap between layers.
  • Bake from frozen state 350F oven for 20 minutes, turning them once or until they are golden on both sides.
