Chicken in a Phyllo Nest
Ingredients
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 10  sheets  frozen phyllo dough (14 x 9-inch rectangles), thawed
  • 1  cup  2-inch pieces green onion (1 bunch)
  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 12  ounces  refrigerated grilled chicken breast strips (3 cups)
  • 1 6  ounce package  fresh baby spinach
  • 3/4  cup  cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered (optional)
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh tarragon
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4  cup  bottled balsamic vinaigrette
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Lightly coat a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. Roll the stack of phyllo sheets into a cylinder shape. With a sharp knife cut phyllo roll crosswise into 1/4- to 1/2-inch strips. Gently separate phyllo into strips and spread evenly in the prepared baking pan. Coat phyllo generously with additional nonstick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until phyllo strips are golden brown.

2. Meanwhile, in a 12-inch skillet cook the green onion in olive oil over medium-high heat for 1 minute or until just tender. Add chicken; cook and stir until heated through. Remove skillet from heat. Add spinach; cherry tomatoes, if using; tarragon; and pepper. Toss to combine.

3. Divide phyllo among 6 serving bowls. Spoon spinach mixture over phyllo. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette. Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
