1/4 cup vegetable oil -- see note 1
1 medium onion -- peeled, chopped
2 cups cooked chicken -- diced
1 cup frozen peas -- defrosted OR fresh peas
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt -- to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
1/2 pound phyllo dough -- fresh OR frozen and defrosted phyllo dough

Preparation / Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 F. In medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add onion; saute 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in chicken, peas, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste; cook 3 minutes longer. Remove from heat. 2. Stack phyllo sheets on oiled work surface; cut crosswise in half. Remove 1 piece of phyllo at a time; cover unused sheets with damp towel. 3. On each half sheet of phyllo, spread 1 tablespoon chicken mixture across narrow end closest to you. Roll phyllo over to cover chicken, then fold sides of phyllo in to meet at centre. Continue rolling phyllo up over chicken, jelly roll style, to form a cylinder. 4. Brush burags all over with oil, using about 1/2 teaspoon per side. Arrange on cookie sheet and bake 15 minutes, until golden. Serve warm. To fry burags, heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium-heat. Add burags and fry about 3 minutes, or until golden, turning several times during cooking.
