Phyllo Chicken Potpie Recipe

Ribbons of buttery phyllo dough provide a crispy topping for this impressive entree. Pearl onions, mushrooms, asparagus and chicken are treated to a creamy sauce that our home economists flavored with thyme and sherry.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups fresh pearl onions
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed

"This recipe was a hit with my husband and me. It was very easy to make, and the phyllo was a nice change from the normal potpie crust. I did not have asparagus at the time, so I used frozen broccoli instead, still very good."

"This seemed looked great, but neither I nor my husband liked it."

"My husband and I both really liked the inside filling. However, we weren't huge fans of the Phyllo topping. I added some garlic, peas, & corn to the mixture. I also used red chopped onions instead of the pearl onions. It turned out great!"

"Good and easy to make. I used diced onion instead of pearl onions and turned out well"

"I reduced the amount of pearl onions to half, but I think next time I'd add some chopped onions instead, as some people had suggested. I may also add rosemary instead of thyme for a different twist. Overall, very good! I loved how pretty the phyllo was on top!"

"I sauteed chopped onion in place of the pearl onions, as I just like them better. I used butter flavored oil substitute (like Pam), because that's what I had but next time I'm going to use the butter spray called for in the recipe. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and it worked out great. Leftovers aren't terrific though."

"I substituted a chopped onion, sauteed for the pearl onions and LOVED it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 14, 2011

"Pretty much everybody liked it, but I think if I made it again, I'd modify it a little bit. I reduce the onions to maybe a half cup, and make them diced onions rather than pearl. Then I would add a cup of green beans and maybe a half cup of corn. Pearls are too much of a good thing. Nevertheless, it was good as is. I also substituted 1/2 tsp. dried thyme for the fresh. I'm sure fresh might be better, but it would also take time I don't want to dedicate to cooking."
