DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice, onion, half the garlic, oregano, sage and half the emmental together. Add a pinch of salt.
  • In another bowl, mix the melted butter and the remainder of the garlic.
  • Place one sheet of filo pastry on the work surface and brush with the butter mix. Place another sheet of pastry directly on top and brush with more butter.
  • Position a breast of chicken one-third of the way from the short end of the pastry. Spoon half the mayonnaise mixture on top.
  • Fold up the short end of the pastry over the chicken, then fold in the two long sides. Roll the chicken to form a parcel.
  • Repeat to make a second parcel and place both on a baking tray (or I prefer to use a large flat glass dish).
  • Brush the top of each with any remaining butter and sprinkle on the remaining emmental.
  • Cook for 25-30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden and the chicken cooked.
