1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In a medium ovensafe saucepan or Dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook until water evaporates and mushrooms start to brown, about 7 min. Add leeks and cook until softened, 5 to 7 min. Stir in carrots and cook, 2 min. Season chicken with salt and
add to pan, stirring until chicken is lightly cooked on all sides, 7 to 10 min.
2. Add flour and stir until flour turns beige. Stir in green beans, broth and thyme and cook over medium heat until mixture reaches a gravy-like consistency, about 10 min. Remove from heat.
3. Place 1 phyllo sheet on countertop and brush with a bit of remaining olive oil. Fit sheet loosely over chicken mixture inside pot, covering right to edges. Tuck excess phyllo under itself. Repeat with remaining 2 sheets. Sprinkle with pepper. Bake for 20 min. or until phyllo is golden and juices are bubbling.
