Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Cook and stir onion, jalapeno pepper, and garlic until tender, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Combine chicken, Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese, cream cheese, hot pepper sauce, and onion mixture in a large bowl.
  5. Spray 5 phyllo sheets each with cooking spray. Stack these 5 phyllo sheets on top of each other and cut into 4 smaller squares.
  6. Spoon chicken mixture into each of the 4 squares; fold phyllo dough over and seal the edges. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough and chicken mixture until you have 12 filled pockets.
  7. Brush beaten egg on tops of filled phyllo pockets.
  8. Place filled phyllo pockets on a baking sheet.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

when life gives you lemons and you make lemon aid is exactly how I felt about this recipe. I have never used phyllo sheets before so to me the instructions were not clear at all. How much mixture do we put in the squares and how do you seal the edges they don't just stick together.. and then there was no picture to show me what the final product should look like. I did not add the jalapeno I used green chilies instead. the filling was good.
