    Irmgard's Note:

    This is a fairly easy to make dish that you can serve for either a family dinner or for a dinner party. It is excellent served with a steamed green such as spinach or rapini, simply dressed with a little olive oil and garlic.

      Simple and elegant! This was fun to make. Thanks for the straight forward directions. It was the first time I've really used phyllo and you made it so easy for me. It was great to be able to use fresh herbs from my garden for this. The seasonings were just right. I used good Greek feta and although it is much less salty than our Canadian feta I did not add any salt as per your recipe. As I said, the seasonings were perfect! I found the bottoms to be a bit soggy. Perhaps if I put the bundles on a rack I might avoid this. It did not effct the taste or the presentation one bit. This is a keeper Irmgard, yummy!

      This was very well received at my dinner party. It looked nice and tasted great. It does take really take 1 hour and 15 minutes to make, and it does make the perfect amount of filling. I tried to make a little extra, but the extra was leftover. I did have a problem with cutting open the chicken breasts. Most were too thin to split. I simply put some filling on the breast and folded it in half. This worked okay for some of them, though with others the filling oozed out and the phyllo dough broke open. Thankfully I’d made extra.
