Roasted Chicken and Brie Pie with Honey and Mustard

So I’ve tried to make this recipe multiple times, but it just seemed like I just wasn’t meant to be!
Try #1 – Power Outage: No Power = No Stove!
Try #2 – Had Power, but our stove decided to NOT work!
Try #3 – Something came up and we went to meet up with some friends instead
Try #4 –  Silly me bought the wrong dough!
Try #5 – Have Power, Oven Works, Nothing Came Up and I finally have the right type of pastry! THANKS SACHA!(Well this one is in the oven right now.. so hopefully it turns out!! We will find out in 30 minutes!)
Verdict: It was very good, just a bit hard to serve. Next time I’m going to make them into individual pies using a muffin pan.
 
INGREDIENTS
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
(or you can use a whole roasted chicken bought at the store to save time and skip a few steps)
1 sweet onion, sliced
1 tsp each salt and pepper
2 tsp vegetable oil
1 wheel Brie cheese, cubed
1 cup sliced roasted red pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup grainy mustard
3 tbsp liquid honey
4 tsp cornstarch
6 sheets phyllo pastry
1/3 cup butter, melted

Line rimless baking sheet with parchment paper or grease; set aside.  Line rimmed baking sheet with foil; place chicken and onion on pan. Sprinkle with half each of the salt and pepper; drizzle with oil. Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven until onion is tender and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 20 minutes. Let cool.
