Chicken & Mushroom Spanakopitas Recipe

I love to make dishes like this; they're so easy and look like you really fussed! Using the lowfat feta and butter flavored Pam really lightens up this dish. If using dried herbs, cut quantity in half. I am entering this for the Tyson Recipe ideas. —Teena Petrus, Johnstown, Pennsylvania

Nutritional Facts

2 spanakopitas (calculated without tzatziki) equals 371 calories, 14 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 57 mg cholesterol, 751 mg sodium, 42 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 23 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare chicken according to package directions; coarsely chop. In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a bowl; stir in herbs, spinach, cheese and chicken.
  2. Layer six sheets of phyllo dough on a work surface, spritzing each with cooking spray. (Cover remaining phyllo with plastic wrap and a damp towel.) Cut the stack lengthwise in half. Place 1/3 cup filling on one end of each strip. Fold a corner of dough over filling, forming a triangle. Fold triangle up, continuing to fold like a flag. Spritz end with cooking spray and seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  3. Spritz triangles with cooking spray; place on baking sheets. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. If desired, serve with tzatziki. Yield: 6 servings.
