Chicken baked with Phyllo & Feta Cheese (Kotopita)

Happy Valentineโ€™s Day Everyone!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Wishing everyone a lovely and loving day!!!

So, the weather has been good to us here, we have been having much sun but with low temperatures so this is great for taking long walks with Charlie and just enjoying the outdoors.ย 

When we returned from our morning walk, I had all the ingredients ready for this recipe on the counter.ย  If you have gone on vacation to Greece, I am sure some have tried the Chicken Pie, if not well here is a recipe that is put together very quickly.ย  The pie I made this morning has fewer ingredients than usual, reason being is that my hubby has an ulcer so, leek and onions are out of the question so I came up with this version..I hope you enjoy it!!

    This looks sublime! Just to clarify: The last 3 sheets of phyllo each get brushed with olive oil, but the first 3 don't?

    Thank you so much for your kind comment. Yes, that's correct. When I first made this pita and brushed the bottom layered sheets it just became to soggy. So, by burshing the baking pan with olive oil and layering the 3 sheets on top it baked much better and no sogginess. :)

    I thought that might be why. Thanks!
