From the side, slice chicken lengthwise almost in half, to create a pocket; place in glass dish. Whisk together wine, oil, garlic, bay leaves, oregano, pepper and salt ; pour over chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for at least 12 or for up to 24 hours. Drain chicken, reserving 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the marinade.

Place 1 sheet of phyllo on work surface, keeping remainder covered with plastic wrap and damp towel to prevent drying out. Brush with butter; top with second sheet.
