Chicken Cordon Blue Strata.


Chicken Cordon Blue Strata

Phyllo dough, thawed
Butter, melted
Chicken, cooked and shredded
Ham, diced
Swiss Cheese, shredded
Gruyere cheese, shredded
Spinach
Tomatoes
Salt and pepper

Remove a sheet of phyllo dough from the package.  Brush with melted butter and place in the bottom of a spring form pan.  Repeat, layering the sheets of phyllo to form a base on the bottom of the pan and edges up the side of the pan.

Make strata layers inside your phyllo crust.  Layer chicken, ham, cheese, spinach and tomatoes.  Repeat layers and press down of filling ingredients as you go.

When spring form pan is full of filling ingredients, finish by making a phyllo layer on the top.  Bring outside edge pieces of phyllo over the top, and also layer new pieces of phyllo dough and tuck them into the sides of the spring form pan.

Bake for 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool.  Slice into wedges to serve.
