“Crispy and flaky on the outside, savory and a little sweet on the inside. Even though I titled this Lady Lunch, my husband loved this! Very quick and simple.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Move rack to lower 1/3 of oven.
  2. Melt 4 T butter in a saucepan over medium high heat.
  3. Add red onions, stir and soften, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add brown sugar, maple syrup and raisins, stirring to combine and melt the sugar, about 4 minutes.
  5. Add Dijon mustard; stir.
  6. Reduce heat and let cook for 2-3 minutes.
  7. In the meantime, slice chicken breasts horizontally very thin, almost shave-like.
  8. Melt remaining butter in the microwave.
  9. Have the phyllo dough ready to go, under a damp towel to keep from crumbling.
  10. Lay out a sheet of phyllo, brush with melted butter. Repeat with 3 more layers of phyllo.
  11. Re-cover remaining phyllo with damp towel.
  12. Leaving a 2-inch border at the short end, place 1/2 chicken slices/shavings on top of the butter along the short end of the phyllo, leaving a scant 1 inch free along the sides (long sides).
  13. Spoon 1/2 prepared brown sugar-mustard sauce over the top of the chicken.
  14. Fold the 2-inch border over the chicken/sauce, folding the sides inward also, so that as you roll the entire package will be sealed.
  15. Roll up.
  16. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and brush with melted butter.
  17. Repeat once more with the remaining 4 sheets of phyllo, 1/2 chicken and sauce.
  18. Place in pre-heated oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
  19. Serves 4 ladies or 2 hungry guys. Add a crispy salad on the side.
  20. Enjoy!
