Savory pastries make for the perfect handheld meal. The combination of cheesy, melted Velveeta, fresh broccoli, and roasted chicken is impossible to resist. Serve them warm or at room temperature, though you’ll want to eat them straight out of the oven.

Yields: 10 servings
Prep Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 1 hour
- 2 c.
store-bought roasted chicken, skin removed and shredded
- 1 c.
broccoli florets, cut into ½” pieces
- 1/4 c.
green onion, thinly sliced on an angle
- 6 oz.
Velveeta, cut into 1/4” cubes
- 1/4 c.
- 2 tbsp.
- 1/4 tsp.
freshly ground black pepper
All-purpose flour, for rolling dough
(14.1-oz.) package store-bought pie crust, 2 crusts
egg beaten with 1 tbsp. water (for egg wash)
- 2 tbsp.
salt-free everything bagel seasoning
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
