Ingredients

½ cup butter
or margarine, melted, divided
12 sheets phyllo (filo) pastry sheets
*
3 cups chicken
cooked, diced
½ pound bacon
cooked, crumbled
10 ounces broccoli, frozen
chopped
2 cups cheddar cheese
shredded
6 large eggs
1 cup light cream (half&half)
or evaporated milk
½ cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Preheat your oven to 375℉ (190℃).

Brush a 9 by 13 inch baking dish with some of the melted butter.

Lay one sheet of phyllo (filo) pastry on the bottom and brush lightly with butter. Repeat with another 5 sheets of phyllo pastry.

Cover remaining phyllo pastry with a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.

In a medium sized bowl, combine the chicken, bacon broccoli and shredded cheddar cheese. Toss gently to combine. Spread the mixture evenly over the phyllo in the baking dish.

Whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over top of the chicken mixture.

Cover with a sheet of phyllo pastry, brush with butter (or spray with cooking spray) and repeat for each remaining sheet of phyllo.

Brush the top with remaining butter.

Bake, uncovered, 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Lovely crisp and delicate layers of phyllo on the top and bottom and the filling was just packed with complimentary flavors. Much healthier than a chicken pot pie (less fat laden pastry) but delivered the wow factor. This was gobbled up and everyone came back for seconds...
