easy chicken pot pie turnovers

I debated long and hard if I should write this post.

Because, you see, this recipe is so simple, I am a little embarrassed to post it.

But the fact that it requires only 5 ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to put together is a huge plus definitely.

And it makes a great breakfast item because you can make them and freeze them, then simply reheat them for brekkie.

At 5.45am, I am usually in no condition to whip up something even close to being half-spectacular, so I really need all the help I can get.

So here are the (very short) instructions on how to make these super delicious hand-held turnovers.

In a bowl, combine shredded chicken and frozen vegetables. There is no need to thaw the vegetables.

Add the cream of chicken.

Stir to mix. Add some black pepper – the cream of chicken is already salty so there is no need to add any more salt. Set this aside.

Cut a piece of store-bought puff pastry into quarters. 

Place a tablespoon of the chicken mixture on one side of each square of pastry. Bring Point A to Point B (see photograph below).

Press gently with a fork to seal the edges.

Place on a baking mat or baking paper. Brush with egg white.

Bake at 180°C for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry turns golden brown.

Cool the turnovers on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

It is amazing how good these are.

If I hadn’t made them, I wouldn’t have believed they were so darn easy to make!
