Phyllo dough

I'm making personal sized chicken pot pies and couldn't find / don't want to make pie dough so I bought phyllo. I have no idea how to use it. Can anyone tell me how many layers to put on and if I separate each one with butter or oil?

Here is the recipe my daughter uses. If you have a filling you want to use, just use that, but this will tell you how to use the phyllo dough as a topping. You can't use it under the filling. It would become a soggy mess.

Or go for this Moroccan version, Chicken and Almond Bastilla, which is already designed to use phyllo/thin pastry.
