  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ground chicken, shallots, wine, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.

  • Lay out one phyllo sheet on a clean surface, and brush with a light layer of melted butter. Place another sheet on top. Form a 1/2 inch thick strip of the chicken mixture along the long side of the sheets of dough. Roll up like a long cigar, dabbing the end of the dough with a little butter to seal. Cut into 3 inch sections to make cigars. You should get 3 cigars per roll. Place the cigars in a baking dish, and repeat the process with the remaining dough and filling.

  • Bake for 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the rolls are deep golden brown and crispy.

  • While the cigars are baking, whisk together the cream, sour cream, paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir just until the sauce is hot. Do not boil. Remove from heat and serve as a dipping sauce for the cigars.

We really like this! It's fairly easy to make and the sauce tastes really good with the wraps. I've made it two times now once with ground turkey and once with ground chicken. Read More

I like the idea of this recipe but I will definitely make some changes. It calls for way too much cumin. That's all I could taste. Too much red pepper flake as well. I would use more phyllo dough. The sauce wasn't good. I just started grabbing spices and mixing them in. I won't make the sauce again. Read More

I liked this idea and I may make it again... I agree that there was too much cumin and probably too much red pepper. I added more filo dough to make it flakier and I liked that I couldn't imagine it with less... And I agree... i didn't like the sause very much not sure what I'll do differently next time. My husband liked it but didn't love it didn't dive for the leftovers... I couldn't finish way too much cumin so next time I'll do changes but I do think I'd try it again. Read More
