Some years ago I found this recipe and streamlined it to fit our family. The broccoli adds a lot to the rich flavor. Phyllo is fun to work with, and its flakiness turns standard ingredients into a special, satisfying entree. —Joyce Mummau, Mt. Airy, Maryland

"Yum!!! Didn't have chicken so I doubled the bacon and made it for my family for dinner. We all loved it, the phyllo crust is so light and flaky, and the creamy filling was great too! Reminded me of a frittata surrounded by delicious crust!"

"Sooooooo delicious! My husband and I made this for dinner but we used mushrooms, goat cheese, spinach and heavy whipping cream with only two eggs. Extremely flavorful and flaky' definitely one to remember"

"Phyllo chicken is an amazing combination of flavors, but requires a lot of prep work. The last time I made this was before my children were born, but I can still remember the amazing taste, and need to make it again!"

"This is comfort food at it's best. This may take a little time with the phyllo dough, but it's worth the extra effort."

"I served this casserole at a family gathering and everyone thought it was very good. I did add a tablespoon and a half of fresh, chopped tarragon. This would make a very nice brunch entree."

"When I made this chicken Phyllo I omitted the bacon because I didn't have it on hand. I used cooked, cubed, red potato and my husband said it was the best chicken Pot pie he ever had. To me it tasted like a nice breakfast. Imagine using ham, potato and cheese...Mmmmmm"
