Serves 30 | Prep Time 8 | Cook Time 10


1/4 cup chopped green onion
4 oz cream cheese
4 oz mayo
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper
1 1/2 cups chicken breast, cooked and shredded
Phyllo purses
1 roll phyllo dough, thawed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined and set aside.

Preheat the oven according to phyllo package directions.

Unroll the phyllo dough onto a dry surface (be sure to follow the "handling instructions" on the box).

Remove 3 sheets of phyllo dough at a time (purses will be 3 sheets thick) and brush the top with melted butter.

Cut the stack into 5x5 squares as you go - cut only enough squares to fill a mini-muffin pan and return the unused dough to the covered stack.

Spoon the filling onto the center of a phyllo square and brush the uncovered dough with melted butter.

Gather the sides and press together, forming a purse.

Set the purse into the muffin pan and brush with melted butter.

Repeat until the muffin pan is full. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the phyllo purse tops are golden brown and crispy.

Remove from oven and cool the cups on a baking rack.

Yields approx 2-1/2 dozen phyllo purses.
