Greek Spinach and Chicken Pie #Pi Day

Tender flaky phyllo crust stuffed with cheese, spinach and chicken.  A beautiful and delicious one dish meal.


Join in the fun as we celebrate 3.14 better known as PI Day.......
Coleen of The Redhead Baker invites us on this date every year to celebrate #Pi Day with her.  We bloggers are always up to sharing recipes with each other so it is not that unusual that when someone says Pi, we envision Pie.


Last year for Pi Day I shared a recipe for Spaghetti Pie.  In 2018 I made a Smoked Salmon Pie.  The year prior to that I made Tomato Cheddar Pie.  Do you see a trend here?  4 Pi(e) days and all savory.

For some reason I did not participate in 2016 but I did participate in 2015 with a different host and that time I did make a sweet pie.   This delicious Chocolate Mousse Pie.

This year I went savory because we have Spring Sweets Week coming up and I am overloaded with sweet treats.  If you love a savory pie and you are, like me, always looking for ways to repurpose leftovers,  you are going to be very happy with this Spinach and Chicken Pie.

Before I share my recipe though, let's take a look at the other Pies being served up today.........

I made this recipe using leftover roast chicken.  It was a quick, easy and delicious weeknight meal.  The next time you have chicken on your menu make sure you cook enough that you can make this pie with the leftovers.

Happy Pi(e) Day!!!

Tender flaky phyllo crust stuffed with cheese, spinach and chicken. A beautiful and delicious one dish meal.
prep time: 15 Mcook time: 40 Mtotal time: 55 M

ingredients:

  • 2 c. cooked chicken,  cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 c. ricotta cheese
  • 1 (10 oz) pkg. frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and excess water removed
  • 1 c. crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 T. oregano

How to cook Greek Chicken and Spinach Pie

  1. Brush a pie plate with some of the melted butter.  Place about 5 to 6 sheets of phyllo dough, one at a time into the pie plate allowing excess to hang over the edges.  Brush each sheet with melted butter before placing another sheet on top in an opposite direction.  Continue until you have an even layer all around.
  2. Mix the ricotta, chicken, feta, eggs, spinach, dill, salt and pepper in a bowl until combined.  Spread into the pie pan lined with phyllo.  Fold over the phyllo that is hanging over the sides.  Add  3-4 phyllo sheets on top, brushing with butter after each addition until the pie is completely covered.  
  3. Place into a preheated 400* oven for 30-40 minutes, until the phyllo is golden brown and flaky.  Let rest for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
