Cindy Burby


C. mayonnaise
3 T. drained, chopped sundried tomatoes in oil
2 T. dried basil (or 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh basil)
1/8 lb. of thin sliced prosciutto (or 3 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled)
3 cloves garlic, minced
cup fresh grated parmesan
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or 8 tenderloins
6 T. melted butter
Freshly ground black pepper

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut chicken in half crosswise (or cut into bite sized pieces). In small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, tomatoes, basil, prosciutto, garlic and parmesan cheese.

Make each packet by laying 2 sheets of phyllo on work surface and brush with melted butter. Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Sprinkle black pepper on one side of chicken breast half and spread 1 T. mayonnaise mixture on top. Place chicken on phyllo near short edge. Spread 1 T. mayonnaise mixture on top of chicken and roll chicken and phyllo over once. Fold up long edges, then roll up package. Place packet seam side down and repeat with remaining phyllo. Brush packets with remaining butter. At this point the packets can be frozen in a single layer in an air tight container for up to 1 month. Thaw completely (covered) before baking.

Bake packets (uncovered) on a rimmed baking sheet until golden brown on all sides, about 25 minutes.
