Can some one please tell me the proper way to use Phyllo crust. I want to use this crust for Chicken pot pie. I bought it frozen and the package has no instructions.

Phyllo dough is very delicate. Make sure that you defrost it completely before using. Also, it is helpful to keep a damp cloth over the rest while you are working with a sheet. It must remain moisturized or it will break. Good luck, hope this helps.
You want to brush each layer with melted butter.
You will want to use many layers, at least 5-6 layers, and do keep it covered when not using with a damp cloth as it dries out very quickly.

I put a damp towel and wax paper underneath as well.
In fact, if you can get someone to brush the sheets and you work with them it goes really easy. ;-)
