  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F and line 2 sheet trays with parchment paper. In a large bowl, add chicken, broccoli, green onion, Velveeta, hot sauce, honey, and pepper and toss until combined.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough until it’s about 1/2″ thick. Using a 4” biscuit cutter, cut out 10 rounds from each crust, re-rolling the scraps if necessary. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the filling onto one side of each circle, then fold it in half to create a semicircle.
  3. Press down around the edges of the dough with your finger, then press down with a fork along the edges to seal. Repeat process with remaining dough. Lightly brush with egg wash and place on sheet trays, leaving about 1” in between each.
  4. Using a paring knife, slice 3 vents in the top of each hand pie. Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until puffed and golden. Remove from oven, let cool for 3 to 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.
