Help me construct a chicken-phyllo entree?

MaggieRSN | Dec 10, 2007 01:03 AM

I have lots of chicken left over from tonight. I want to make some kind of a phyllo tart for tomorrow night's dinner. I think the chicken would be perfect for shredding and layering with other goodies.

I don't want a lot of saturated fat, though (we've been piggy lately).

Can one use EVOO instead of butter to moisten the sheets?

Is there something I could do besides a bechamel-type thing, and still keep it moist?

I know vegetables can help with that. One thing I don't have is spinach, but I do have this gorgeous head of red-leaf lettuce. Can one sautee that--i.e., can it behave like spinach? (I know I'd have to season it more heavily.)

Anyway, last time I posted for your help with ideas, the cupboard was bare, and you came up with dozens of them. Now the pantry is quite full. I have lots of veggies, lower fat hard cheeses I could grate, greek yogurt, buttermilk, bowls of beautiful tomatoes, nice Meyer lemons, potatoes I could slice paper thin, walnuts, tons of stuff I can't think of right now.

I'm just drawing a blank as to what to put together in a relatively healthful way. Any ideas?
