Recipe By : Midwest Living - Dec.1997
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Poultry

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 ounces skinless boneless chicken breast
freshly ground black pepper
5 ounces semisoft cheese spread
8 sheets frozen phyllo dough -- thawed
1/3 cup butter -- melted
cooked wild rice

Place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound lightly till about 1/4" thick. Sprinkle with pepper. Divide the cheese (semisoft, with French onions, garlic and herb or garden vegetables) into 4 equal pieces; form into balls. Place a cheese ball in the center of each piece of chicken. Fold in the sides and roll the pieces up, jelly-roll style.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Evenly stack 8 phyllo dough sheets on a work surface. (Cover and return the remaining phyllo to your freezer.) With a sharp knife, cut the phyllo stack into 12" squares; discard trimmings. Generously brush one square with butter, Place another square on top; brush with butter. Keep the remaining 6 squares of phyllo covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying.
Place a chicken breast, seam side down, on the buttered stack. Gather up the phyllo to form a bundle, twisting top slightly to hold it together. With a spatula, transfer to a prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining phyllo squares and chicken breasts. Bake at 375 F. for 25-30 minutes or until phyllo is golden. Serve with hot, cooked wild rice, if you like.
