Cooking spray
1 cup chopped onion
1 (10-ounce) package fresh spinach, chopped (about 8 cups)
4 cups chopped cooked chicken breast (about 1 1/4 pounds)
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup egg substitute
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon paprika


Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté for 6 minutes or until tender. Stir in spinach, and cook for 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in chicken and the next 6 ingredients (chicken through garlic).

Lightly coat 1 sheet phyllo dough with cooking spray (cover remaining dough to keep from drying). Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs. Repeat the layers with 3 sheets phyllo, cooking spray, and 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs.

Gently press the layers together. Place about 2 1/2 cups chicken mixture along 1 long edge of top phyllo sheet, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Starting at the long edge with the 1/2-inch border, roll up jelly-roll fashion. Place, seam side down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Tuck ends under. Repeat with the remaining 4 sheets phyllo, cooking spray, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, and 2 1/2 cups chicken mixture. Brush strudels evenly with butter. Sprinkle each with 1/8 teaspoon paprika.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Bake strudels at 375° for 20 minutes or until brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Cut each strudel into 4 slices. Serve immediately.
