For the filling
2 skinless chicken breasts
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co Smooth Operator
1-3 tbsp. whole milk
2 green onions, sliced (green and white parts)
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. curry powder
1/2 lemon, juiced
For the phyllo
1 box phyllo, thawed
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
For the dip
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tsp. ground cayenne
Preheat oven to 350°F. Season chicken breasts generously with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Place in a baking dish and bake 30 minutes or until fully cooked. Let cool slightly, and chop finely.
In a bowl, combine warm chopped chicken, softened cream cheese, and peanut butter. Mix until smooth and evenly combined, adding milk if necessary to achieve a creamy consistency. Mix in green onions, garlic powder, curry powder, and lemon juice. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Remove phyllo from package and cut into twelve 6-inch by 8-inch rectangles. (Store remaining phyllo). Cover with a damp paper towel. Starting with one sheet of phyllo, brush generously with butter, then spoon a strip of filling along the edge of the shorter side. Roll the phyllo into a tight tube, and then place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with rest of phyllo and filling, then brush all the rolls with a bit more butter.
Bake about 20 minutes, or until phyllo is crisp and golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes while you whisk together honey and cayenne. Cut each slightly cooled roll in half and serve with honey.
