Chicken Pot Pie Turn Overs

Here is something new that I tried

Chicken Pot Pie Turnovers

Hubby and I like the way they turnout.

I've had this recipe for a while. I had cut it out from my Country Living magazine, 

If you want to give it a try here it is, "Chicken Potpie Turnovers"

One thing I would do next time is to add more of the reserved milk. I wanted the pies to have more liquid in them.  I also used whole milk.

The recipe calls out for store bought empanada disks, which you can purchase at your local Mexican markets, but I just made the dough myself (regular pot pie pastry)

Pot Pie pastry

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening (chill your shortening)
6 to 8 tablespoons cold water

Combine flower and salt, cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time.  Stir with a fork until dry dough comes together.
Shape into a ball and chill

I made my disks a bit thicker so the turnovers would hold the mixture in better. 

I also prepared my disk ahead of time and just layered parchment paper in-inbetween and covered the try with plastic wrap.  When you are ready to start making them, just take them out of the refrigerator for a bit to soften.

It is almost the weekend, yay!

Have a good one.
