1 – There’s nothing difficult about making these hand held pastries, but there are a few steps to take. Start off by rolling out a puff pastry sheet and cutting it into 8 rectangles with a pizza cutter.
2 – Now you’re ready to make the filling…which is an easy blend of sour cream, chicken soup and veggies. Add a few seasonings, and you’re ready to fill the pastries.
3 – Spoon a generous amount of filling on four of the rectangles, then close with the other rectangles. Seal with a fork, and prick the top of the pastries with the tines of a fork to allow for venting.
4 – Brush with an egg wash, then pop these handheld pies into a 425 degree oven. In 20 minutes, watch them transform into the most beautiful pastries you’ve ever seen…or tasted!
The Story Behind This Recipe
I’m a chicken pot pie kinda girl. And my hubby loves them even more than I do. Whenever I venture out on a girl’s night, he has been known to go by the grocery store and purchase a whole case of frozen pot pies.
I came up with this pocket version to eliminate his compulsive behavior. haha!
One time when I was away, my hubby took a picture of his chicken pot pie with a flower in front of it and pretended he had his own food blog. When I got that text, I laughed for days!
