Add the chopped chicken.

Preheat the oven to 375 degree F.

On waxed paper, place one sheet of phyllo, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of bread crumbs.

Repeat with 4 or 5 more layers of phyllo on top of the first one.

Spoon one cup of chicken mixture on one end of the layers of phyllo.

Roll up and tuck the ends under slightly.
Brush the tops with butter and place on a baking sheet.

Cut diagonal cuts across the top approximately one inch apart and 1/2 inch deep.

Sprinkle with paprika.
