      Directions

      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

      Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil and the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the nutmeg and saute until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

      Add the celery, carrots, garlic and onions and saute until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the beans and mushrooms and continue to cook until the vegetables have softened, 4 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the milk and peas and cook until thick and creamy, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Divide the filling evenly among the 4 baking dishes.

      Place a phyllo dough sheet on top of each baking dish and brush the top with oil. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

        Tasty recipe though mine came out watery as well and I didn't read reviews until now so will add extra flour next time. Don't forget to thaw your phyllo dough a day ahead or 5 hours same day, I forgot.

        This is definitely a comfort food done light and right! I replaced all purpose white flour with almond flour and it worked the same in giving the mix thickness, texture and added a bit more nutritional bang for your buck. Thumbs up!

        Easy and delicious! Used leftover smoked chicken and lots of veggies on hand and frozen. Came out perfect. I would serve this to dinner guests! Goes well with a glass of Gwerstimener wine.
