christmas 2010

If you are looking for an easy and festive appetizer or even a simple weekday meal with salad. Don't knock these Chicken, Cranberry and Brie Phyllo Parcels.

Yes, they're somewhat old school, a little retro maybe. However I've found they're always appreciated and seem to disappear fast.

You can replace the cranberries with dried apricots or dried cherries for a different take. They're also lovely served with a little raspberry or berry infused vinaigrette to dip.

  • Chicken, Cranberry and Brie Phyllo Parcels
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, approximately 300 grams, diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ½ cup of dried cranberries (Craisins)
  • 125 grams of brie, diced
  • 20 sheets of phyllo, approximately 350 grams
  • 100 grams of butter, melted
  1. Season the diced chicken well.
  2. Preheat your fry pan over a medium high heat.
  3. Add a little olive oil and sauté the chicken until golden and cooked through.
  4. Add the dried cranberries to the pan and stir through to soften.
  5. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  7. Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F)
  8. Take the phyllo sheets out of the packet and cover with a tea towel to avoid them drying out.
  10. Brushing one sheet at the time with butter, fold it in half length ways and brush the dry top side with butter.
  11. Fold in half length ways once more so you have a long strip ¼ the width.
  13. Place a small spoonful of the chicken and cranberries with a piece or two of brie at one end of the phyllo strip.
  14. Fold the phyllo over to form a triangle enveloping the chicken and fold and flip again down the length of phyllo until you reach the end and have a tight triangle parcel.
  15. Brush once more with butter and place on a lined baking tray.
  16. Repeat with the remaining phyllo and chicken until you have approximately 20 parcels.
  17. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.
