Chicken and Feta Phyllo Pie

This is a gorgeous savory pie that’s filled with chicken, feta and parmesan cheese, fresh herbs, onions and garlic, and the best part is it’s nestled between a crunchy crust of phyllo dough.

I said it before and I’ll say it again, don’t be afraid to use phyllo, it’s so easy to use and so forgiving, even if you tear a piece no worries, no one would even know, trust me on that!

  1. I’m fascinated by that gorgeous crust — i can just imagine how it shatters when you bite into it!

  2. Gosh, this looks wonderful!

  3. Marie – I have a chunk of feta in the fridge and this recipe would be so perfect for it. Heck, I’ve even got the phyllo! I think this is in my future.

  4. I have a confession to make — please don’t tell anyone– I am not brave when it comes to phyllo so I haven’t been using it. All the recipes that have phyllo Hubby declares too much — we’d have to eat it all. Well, I say, what’s wrong with that??? 🙂 He gives me “that look”. You know the one that says we are watching our weight and eating this for several meals would NOT be prudent. So!! I will have to wait until the kids come to our house or we go to theirs. Looks fantastic and the ingredients are soooooo good. I’m with Linda — this is calling to me. Phyllo watch out — I’m coming!! Have a great weekend.

  5. I love working with phyllo dough, and I am with you – it’ s not so hard, and it really is satisfying. People always enjoy dishes made with it, and I wish home cooks would overcome their fear of phyllo. It’s really unfounded. This is such an appealing dish. It looks like you already have your eye on spring, Marie!
