Chicken, Spinach, Feta, and Filo pastry Pie Recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground skinless chicken breast
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 10 ounce chopped spinach
  • 1 cup feta cheese
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 8 (9 by 14 inch) sheets filo (thawed if frozen)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400*F, place oven rack on the bottom third of the oven, and spray 9 inch pie plate with a nonstick spray.
  2. To make filling, Spray skillet with a nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Add chicken and onion, cook and break apart chicken until its no longer pink (takes around 8 mins). Add garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and pepper, stir and cook until fragrant (around 1 min). Stir in tomato sauce and simmer until the mixture has thickened (around 5 mins). Once thick, transfer mixture into a bowl and stir in spinach, feta, and egg whites.
  3. Lay one filo sheet at the bottom of the pie plate, spray with a nonstick spray, repeat this three times, lightly spraying each sheet. (Cover remaining filo with a damp paper towel to avoid it drying out). Spoon in filling and then top pie with the remaining 4 filo sheets (make sure to layer and lightly spray each sheet as done before).
  4. Roll up edges of the filo towards the center of the pie, forming a 1 1/2 inch wide rim. Bake pie on bottom rack of oven until filo is golden brown ( around 30-35 mins), then let stand for 5 mins.
  5. Last step, Enjoy!! 🙂
