Little Chicken Triangles


Little Chicken Triangles.jpg

It’s a fact, I simply love chicken. I don’t know why; perhaps it is because chicken is such a versatile meat that practically goes with almost everything. Anyway, I had two chicken breasts in my fridge and a package of phyllo sheets that was sitting in my freezer almost forever. I needed to do something with these phyllo sheets or they would become my dustbin’s meal lol.

Chicken + Phyllo = Chicken Triangles. So, how do you like my mathematics? By the way I love math too, do you know why? Because math never betrays you lol. If you follow the rules you always end up with the same result.

Anyway, as I was saying the idea was born and then all I had to do is to implement it and ta-dah these little triangles appeared in our lunch table. I will tell you one thing, by the end of the day there was none. After this I just rest my case lol. Let’s see how they were created.

In a skillet pour 3 tbsp of olive oil in medium heat. Add the onions and sauté for 7 minutes.

Pour the milk, egg and cracked wheat. Let cook for five minutes or until most of the milk is absorbed and then add the cheeses.

Let cook for 5 minutes and then remove from fire.

Take one phyllo sheet and place it on the counter with its longest side close to you. Oil it and place another sheet on top. Cut it in 4 equal strips.

Place one spoonful of the filling and fold as triangles (just like you see in the pictures).

Repeat the same procedure until you run out either of filling or sheets.

Preheat oven to 200° C.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the triangles.

Take one egg, beat it slightly and brush the triangles.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until they are golden brown.

    Katrina, these look so glossy and ultra delicious! Really really loved your pics! In India, we have a very similar triangle called ‘samosa’, one of my favorite, but never made it from scratch…you are inspiring me to try making them at home and baking makes them so much more healthier! Love to you and your family…take care!
