These hand pies are ideal for grab-and-go meals! They’re loaded with veggies and chicken, wrapped in a thyme-accented crust – all the homestyle goodness of traditional pot pies, but healthier and totally portable!
With all the buttery pie crust and rich filling in a typical pot pie, it’s definitely not exactly a nutritious meal. This version changes all that! It’s filled with nutrients from lots of tasty (kid-friendly) veggies and chunks of chicken. There’s also a rich, creamy (yet much lower-fat!) sauce, too.
Plus, there’s a so-much-healthier crust, deliciously seasoned with thyme and a sprinkling of salt. What’s terrific about the herby goodness on the crust is that, even when you nibble your way to the crispy edges where there isn’t very much filling, you still get flavorful bites of lightly browned crust. Yum!
These also freeze well, too, so you can stock the freezer for busy nights! Just pop them in the oven (straight from frozen!), and you’re out the door in no time!
