Chicken Hand Pies – for National Pie Day!

image_pdf

It’s National Pie Day (not to be confused with National Pi day which is in March). I know, we usually associate pie with sweet, but hey, an American favorite started out as a pie! You, know Pizza Pie? Well here is a savory pie that you eat with your hands – and it’s as delicious as it is easy!


Want to know more??

Here’s How to Do it:

Just make a quick stop at the market to get the ingredients – some rotisserie chicken, frozen veggies, refrigerator pie dough and a can of mushroom soup. Easy as pie!

Start by shredding the chicken breast.

Chop up a little of the skin and sauté it in a skillet with the olive oil and garlic. Add the onions and cook until soft.

Add the shredded chicken, sage, thyme and frozen vegetables, cooking gently on medium-low until everything is warmed and smelling great.

Stir in the soup, salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

Lay out the pie dough and cut each piece into half. If you can find square sheets it’s easier, but round ones work fine too.

Spoon 1/4 of the meat and veggie mixture into the center of each piece of dough.

Pull the sides over the filling and press down the edges until they are all sealed.

Lay on a cookie sheet and brush the tops and sides with melted butter.

Bake at 350° for about 15 to 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

Put on a rack and give the thick edges just one more little brushing of  butter.

Allow to cool slightly before serving.

It’s dinner time!
