Recipe Notes

You can use chicken for this, leftover or you can cook it and mix later with stir-fry. You can find Fillo tart shells in Frozen section in the grocery store --usually where frozen desserts are. If you would eat serving size this would probably serve more than 4 people, but in reality, 2 people could finish this in heartbeat. Oyster sauce, as well as Soy sauce and fish sauce, have a high level of sodium, so be aware not to pour the whole mixture at one time. Add a tablespoon at the time, taste and add more if needed to please your taste.
