SPINACH & FETA CHICKEN PIE

May 28, 2015

Sometimes if I am feeling unwell, David (husband champion of the world) does lots of cooking. That means lots of pasta and tomato sauce because it is easy and inexpensive. So once I am better again, both of us never want to be anywhere near that dish again for at least a month.

I was in the mood for a dinner that is not the same classics we put on rotation. This dish is still simple and fast, but refreshing for its flavors and the phyllo dough you do not see every night.

  • We made this last night and loved it! It’s going on our short list of good/easy dinner meals.

  • Love it! It reminds me of a more summery riff on chicken pot pie – but just as comforting.
