Wash and drain chicken breast. Take it in a pressure cooker and add 3 cups of cold water. Bring it to the boil. You will see some foam on the surface when it starts to boil. Take them all with a spoon and discard. Close the lid of pressure cooker and turn the heat down to low. Cook the chicken for 5 minutes at low heat. Take the pressure cooker and let it cool. Open the lid when it is cool enough and take the chicken out. ( You could use the broth for soup or rice) Cut them into small pieces.

In a large pot, take vegetable oil add chopped onion and chopped sweet red pepper. Stir and cook until onion is tender. Add chichen and stir. Add black pepper and salt. Turn the heat off.
For the sauce; take eggs, milk and vegetable oil in large mixing bowl and whisk.

Brush bottom and sides of a 13 by 17-inch baking tray with vegetable oil. Layer the first half of fillo. Place the filling all over covering the whole surface.

Layer the  second half of fillo on top of the filling and cut the whole thing into squares.

 Pour the sauce evenly. Sprinkle sesame seeds. Take the tray in the refrigeretar for two hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Bake for about 45 minutes or until nicely brown.

I'm wondering - would it be ok to leave it in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours before cooking? Would 4 hours be too much?

Marie, you can even leave them in the fridge over night.
Thanks for visiting.

Thanks for sharing the recipe , can I use butter instead of oil, so I don't have to brush each fillo dough with oil? Also do I have to leave it in the fridge or can I just bake once done ?

Yes, you can use melted butter can bake right away too. However, it tastes better if it rest in the fridge at least for couple of hours
Thank you...
