I wanted the buttery crunch of layered pastry without the sweet filling of strudel. Using rotisserie chicken from the store, I found my savory answer. —Johnna Johnson, Scottsdale, Arizona

  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Nutritional Facts

1 serving: 323 calories, 18g fat (10g saturated fat), 70mg cholesterol, 550mg sodium, 25g carbohydrate (1g sugars, 1g fiber), 16g protein.


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place the first six ingredients in a large bowl; toss to combine.
  2. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; brush lightly with melted butter. Layer with five additional sheets, brushing each layer. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
  3. Spoon half of the rice mixture down the center of the phyllo dough to within 1 in. of ends. Fold up short sides to enclose filling. Roll up tightly, starting with a long side.
  4. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan, seam side down. Brush with additional butter. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and heated through. Yield: 6 servings.

"This was quick to make and very good. I also used chicken I had from the night before. It was my first time using phyllo and I had no problems with it. I served it with a green salad. Good meal for game night."

"Wow just made these and they are delicious! I chopped chicken I made from day before. It was my first time using phyllo, which as I was making it I thought I'd never use it again, until I ate GOOD!"
