My kids love anything wrapped in pastry! Greek style tomatoes topped on a piece of chicken and wrapped in filo pastry. Serve with chips and a big Greek salad and you're ready to go.

This is a recipe that can be made ahead of time and just popped into the oven to cook, perfect for entertaining.

How to Make Betty's Mediterranean Chicken Parcels


  1. In a heavy based fry pan cook the chicken in the oil so the are completely cooked - about 5-6 minutes each side depending on how thick your chicken is. Set aside to cool a bit.
  2. In the same pan, Add the tomatoes and peppers and cook for a full 3 minutes. Add the garlic, olives and oregano and stir until the garlic is fragrant. Add salt and pepper is desired.
  3. Grab two filo sheets, top one end with a cooked chicken piece and then top with 2 dessertspoons of tomato sauce. Carefully fold the filo to make a neat parcel. Repeat with all the chicken and tomato sauce. If making these for later - pop on a large plate and cover well and place in the fridge until needed.
  4. Place the chicken parcels on a large baking try and brush liberally with the melted butter. Bake in a 180oC (365oF) oven for 20-25 minutes.
