Personal Notes:
I like to lightly spread pesto on stuffed chicken before wrapping with 2 layers of Phyllo since this helps the Phyllo stick. After carefully adding another layer of pesto I add thinly sliced Phyllo strips over the top to achieve the "Haystack" effect. Lightly spray with cooking oil to help golden the Phyllo before sprinkling with Paprika for added color.
