  • 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.

  • Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  • 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.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • 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.
  • Add the chicken mixture, making sure to spread in an even layer, and top with a layer of phyllo sheets.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
