Leftover Chicken or Turkey Hot Sandwich Dinner Idea

Three cups leftover chicken or turkey-chopped
8 ounce tub chive flavored cream cheese
1 clove minced garlic
Opt- small can of mushrooms, drained,  1/2 C chopped artichoke hearts, or 1/2 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes.

Mix this togetrher.

10 to 12 sheets of filo dough
1/2 C melted butter
1 C Mozzarella
Parmesan and garlic powder

On a cookie sheet layer the filo dough brushing a little butter between each layer.  Put the chicken mixture in the middle of the dough so that it is 3 inches wide.  leave two or three inches at each end.  Use a sharrp knife and cut the sides of the dough into 1/2 inch strips.  Top the chicken with 1 Cup of mozzarella cheese.  Lace the strips over the chicken and cheese.  Brush the top of the sandwich with butter and top with a little garlic powder and Parmesan. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

After Thanksgiving I am always looking for creative ways to use the leftover  Turkey.  I don't think anyone would complain about this recipe.  It is surprisingly flavorful.  The filo dough is light, crispy and flakey.
