Chicken Cigars

Saturday, February 28, 2009

Holy Macaroni, make sure you read the comment left for me on my Dutch Baby post! That made my day!

This chicken cigar recipe is from Rachel Ray’s poker night episode (one of the maybe five Rachel Ray episodes I’ve ever seen). Andrew had a friend spend the night and I thought it would be the perfect boy’s night snack. The cigars were very easy to make and fun to eat. The seasonings ended up resembling a taco seasoning. The boys dipped their cigars in salsa but I would have loved to have some sour cream for mine.

1 1/2 pounds ground chicken breast
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons grill seasoning (Montreal Seasoning by McCormick)
2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves
4 sheets phyllo dough
4 tablespoons butter, melted

Place chicken in a bowl and mix with spices and parsley. Place a piece of phyllo on a nonstick cookie sheet, butter it and top with a second sheet. Divide the chicken in half. Form a 1-inch thick log the length of the long side of the phyllo dough. Roll the log in phyllo tightly. Cut the chicken filled phyllo into 4 "cigars" and brush with a dab more butter. Repeat to make a total of 8 chicken and phyllo roll-ups. Bake at 425 for 12 to 15 minutes until golden.
