Chicken & chard bourek x 3

Chicken & chard bourek x 3


I made Turkish bourek last night with chicken thighs, Swiss chard, feta/cream/cheddar cheese, onions and pine nuts — a family favorite. My two-year-old even helped by spreading some butter between the layers of phyllo! The little 70ml containers have lids, keeping their juicy contents away from the rest of the lunch in transit.

Chard and chicken bourek lunch

  • bourek with chicken, Swiss chard and cheese filling
  • copper pennies (carrots, onions and bell pepper in a sweet vinegar tomato sauce — my Grandma’s recipe)
  • Greek yogurt with garlic
  • cherry tomatoes and cheese cubes
