3/4 cup chopped green onion
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 Tbs. lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
3/4 tsp. dry tarragon
2/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
12 sheets filo
6 chicken breasts, halved, boned and skinned
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbs. grated parmesan cheese

Mix together green onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, 2 cloves of the garlic, and the tarragon; set aside. Combine remaining garlic with the butter.

For each packet, place 1 sheet of filo on a board and brush it with about 2 tsp. garlic butter; arrange a second sheet on top and brush it with another 2 tsp. garlic butter. Lightly sprinkle a chicken piece with salt and pepper, spread one side with the mayo mixture, turn over onto filo corner (flip corner of filo over chicken; roll once) and top with more mayo mixture (about 3 Tbs. in all). Wrap chicken breasts in filo (fold side over top and roll again, fold opposite side over, then roll up).

Place the 6 packets slightly apart in an ungreased baking pan. Brush with remaining garlic butter; sprinkle with cheese. Bake in a 375 oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Serve hot.

Serve with steamed broccoli and hot rolls!

To freeze, pack in a single layer in a container with tight-fitting lid. Thaw completely, covered, before baking.
