Wow, what a week! Ice storm on Sunday morning (1/4″ of ice) that lead to thunderstorms Sunday night / Monday morning. Record High of 56 degrees on Monday, awesome…..melted all of the ice. Then surprise snowstorm that dumped 6″ of snow on Tuesday and it is now a whopping 5 degrees, not factoring in the windchill. I think Mother Nature might be upset, what do you think?

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped (rotisserie works great here)
  • ½ cup enchilada sauce
  • ¼ cup grated cheese (I used colby jack)
  • 2 packages Athens mini fillo shells
  • ¼ cup minced green onions


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix chopped or shredded chicken with enchilada sauce in a small bowl to combine.
  • Fill fillo shells with 1 teaspoon of chicken mixture.
  • Sprinkle cheese over chicken bites.
  • Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone liner for 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with green onions and serve.


You can split the chicken into separate bowls and use different sauces for variety.
