They’re filled with broccoli, chicken and cheddar cheese. It’s an easy to make filling.

If you’re short on time you can use a rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken. I used chicken breast to keep it low in points.

How to Make Broccoli, Chicken & Cheddar Hand Pies:

- Advertisement -

I melted a teaspoon of light butter in a large skillet then added 2 tablespoons of chopped onions. Let the onions cook for 3 minutes on medium heat.

You can use fresh or frozen chopped broccoli. I used frozen because it was easier.

Add the broccoli to the skillet and let that cook a couple minutes.

Next add the chicken, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Stir together and turn off the heat.

On a floured work surface you want to roll out each biscuit into a large circle. Add a heaping tablespoon of filling to the biscuit.

Brush egg wash around the edge of the biscuit to help seal it. Fold the biscuit over and seal the edges. I used a fork to press the edges together.

Place the hand pie on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the egg wash over the top of the hand pie.

Bake the pies 10-14 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

I eat my pie as is but my daughter likes to dip hers in ranch dressing. 🙂
