  • Unroll phyllo dough and lay a slightly damp dishtowel over it. Carefully lift one sheet of dough from stack and fit into greased casserole dish. Brush sheet of dough very lightly with melted butter or margarine. Repeat process with 9 more sheets of phyllo dough. Keep unused dough covered with damp towel as much as possible, to prevent drying out. Cover phyllo-lined dish with plastic wrap and set aside.

  • Place a medium-size skillet over medium heat. Pour olive oil into pan. Saute onion until limp, approximately 5 minutes. Add garlic and chicken, and saute until chicken is browned on the outside and cooked through.

  • Add ginger, capers, creme fraiche, chili sauce, curry powder, and salt and pepper to skillet. Stir in cherries, then taste to check seasoning. Simmer until cherries are heated through.

  • Remove plastic wrap from casserole dish and pour in chicken mixture. Cover mixture with a sheet of phyllo dough. Brush very lightly with melted butter or margarine. Repeat process with 9 more sheets of phyllo. Brush top layer of phyllo with butter or margarine, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.

The parm on our dish burned a bit so I think I should have covered after 10 mins in the oven. We didn't have creme fraiche on hand so I substitued 1 1/3 cups of sour cream 1/3 cup of plain yogurt 1/3 cup whipping cream and 2 T of brown sugar and healthy dash of salt (another cooking site recipe). We doubled the curry and it was just delicious! Read More

My husband loves this recipe....Creme Fraiche can be quite expensive so we have substituted sour cream or Loblaw's Double Thick cream and added a few extra capers because I love them so much!!! Guests love it when we have it! Read More

I had a little bit of phyllo dough fresh cherries and left over Thanksgiving turkey to get rid of and came across this recipe. When I told my husband what I was making he gave me more than one disgusted look. We both ended up loving this. Besides the turkey for chicken the only other change was the amount of phyllo dough. I only had enough to put about 4 to 5 layers on top and bottom but again I thought it was great. Will definitely make again. Read More
