Spicy Chicken Cigars

This came from one of the Rachael Ray books. It was easy and the kids really ate it up. It was meant to be an appetizer, but we had it for a main dish with the grits casserole.

Spicy Chicken Cigars

1 pound ground chicken (I used ground turkey because I couldn't find chicken)
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons grill seasoning, like Montreal steak seasoning
2 tablespoons dried parsley
4 sheets phyllo dough
4 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425. In a large bowl, mix chicken with spices. Place a sheet of phyllo dough on a nonstick cookie sheet and brush with butter. Top with a second sheet. Take half of the chicken and form a one inch thick log the length of the long side of the dough. Roll log in phyllo tightly. Repeat with remaining chicken and phyllo. Cut each log into three cigars and brush with remaining butter. Bake 12- 15 minutes until golden.
