I've said it many times before and I'll say it again because it's so important to me. I only buy chicken with the above Raised by a Canadian Farmer logo as quality matters to me and what I feed my family. They have high standards for human treatment of chickens, many are farms that are family-owned and they give back to their community. Also the chicken is always raised grain-free without hormones! easy chicken phyllo cup appetizersIf you can't find that logo in your grocery store you can ask them manager to bring it in!

easy chicken phyllo cup appetizers

Phyllo cup appetizers are a perfect addition to any party! These are loaded with a delicious chicken, mushroom, and spinach mixture that wows your tastebuds!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 32 minutes


  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 4 cups fresh spinach (Or ⅓ cup thawed and drained of excess moisture, frozen chopped spinach)
  • 4 oz or half a carton button mushrooms (I used sliced), chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 30 phyllo cups (2 boxes)


  1. In a sauté pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, then add the spinach, tossing until completely wilted. About 5 minutes. Place in a paper towel lined bowl to drain, squeeze out excess moisture and chop when cooled. (Or you can use frozen chopped spinach)
  2. Over medium heat in the same sauté pan, add 1 tablespoon oil. Add chopped mushrooms and cook until softened, about 8 minutes. In the last 30 seconds of cooking add minced garlic being careful not to burn the garlic by stirring continuously.
  3. In a medium bowl combine chicken, spinach, mushroom and garlic mixture, cream cheese, parmesan, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. Spoon into phyllo cups.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 10-12 minutes in a 350-degree oven.


You can fill the phyllo cups to the top.

This appetizer tastes best warm but they are still tasty at room temperature too.

Can this easy chicken phyllo cups appetizer recipe be frozen?

You can freeze the filling and then just put the filling in the phyllo cups to bake when you're ready. I don't recommend freezing in the phyllo cups, they would still taste good but they phyllo could get soggy when defrosted. easy chicken appetizer

  1. Both of these will be perfect for the upcoming reception I am hosting. I am doing all finger foods but I want filling foods not just a veggie tray.

  2. I love using phylo cups to make appetizers for parties. I really like your recipe for the chicken, spinach, mushroom phylo cups. I also love the festive recipe for the Cranberry Brie Chicken Wonton Tacos. I've never made wonton tacos before, and I think both the kids and adults will enjoy this.

  3. These sound so good, I love the spinach and mushrooms together! These would be perfect for a party appetizer, they are pretty to look at too! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

  4. The chicken-phyllo-cup-appetizers-with-spinach-mushrooms looks and sounds amazing. I had to pin it so I can try making it . I'm going to try it for the holidays and with the ingredients in it i'm sure it will be a big hit.

  5. I can't help but to think about sneaking some artichoke in these as well =D

    Is it 'fy-lo' or 'fee-lo' dough? I don't know any Greeks and stopped trusting the kid at the market long ago.
