Day 5: Chicken Phillo

Today I'm breakin out a recipe I stole from one of the many restaurants I have worked at in my cooking days. I never leave a restaurant without fully copying down all of the recipes they have. I guess I should feel bad about this, but I totally don't.
Chicken phillo goes for $27 at this unnamed Humboldt County cafe, and I will hook it up at a fraction of this cost (about $4). Within the phillo crust, I will be wrapping a chicken breast, pesto cream cheese, and marinated artichoke hearts. I really like this recipe, because it can be assembled ahead of time, and baked to order/eat. Here are the ingredients:

1. chicken breast (4)
2. phillo pastry sheets (12)
3. cream cheese (8 oz.)
4. pesto (4 oz.)
5. marinated artichoke hearts (6 oz.)
6. melted butter


thaw the chicken in cold water

mix the pesto into the cream cheese


pound the chicken

fry the chicken in a little olive oil

brush each (3) sheets with melted butter

add the chicken and pesto cream cheese....

then add the artichoke hearts

and wrap it up

then butter the wrapped deal

and on to the next one....

bake for about 15 min......or until crust is browned....and BOOM!
