1 c shredded cooked chicken

1/3 c frozen chopped spinach (defrosted and squeezed)

1 large Egg

1/4 tsp salt

How to make Chicken Spinach Filo Pie

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: Place the Chicken Spinach filling ingredients in a large bowl.

Step 3: Grease lightly an 8-inch diameter round cake or 8 x 8-inch square pan.

Step 4: Add one sheet of filo pastry into the prepared pan. Press it so it gets into the edges of the pan, then brush lightly with oil.

Step 5: On top, add another sheet of filo pastry. Slightly turn it so it overlaps in the corners of the pan but do not stack. Brush again lightly with oil.

Step 6: Do the same with the remaining filo sheets. Slightly turning each sheet so the corners overlap. Remember not to oil the last sheet of filo pastry.

Step 7: On top of the prepared filo crust, add and spread the Chicken Spinach Filling.

Step 8: Around the filling, wrap all the hanging edges to make the top crust. You can add an extra 1 to 2 filo sheets on top if they aren’t long enough to cover the filling.

Step 9: Use the rest of the oil to brush the top crumbled filo crust.

Step 10: Place inside the preheated oven. Bake for about 25 minutes until golden, and the top layer is crunchy.

Note:

While working to make the crust, cover the unused filo dough with a damp towel.
