Instructions

For the Filling

  • Place the butter, and the Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock in a saute pan over medium heat.
  • Once melted add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the red pepper, and saute another 2 minutes, or until softened.
  • Add the cream cheese, milk, and seasonings.
  • Whisk to combine and remove from the heat.
  • Add the chicken, broccoli, and parsley in a large bowl with the creamy mixture and fold all together.
  • Set aside.
  • Heat the oven to 425.
  • Roll out the pie crust, and using a biscuit cutter or a glass, cut circles out of the dough. I just use a regular drinking glass to get the little circles.
  • Place a little filling, about a tablespoon, in the center of a circle.
  • Place another circle on top and press around the edges to seal it shut.
  • Use a fork to go around the sides to create a tiny version of a pie crust.
  • Use the scraps to create leaves, stars, etc as a decorative topping.
  • Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 20-30 minutes (ours took about 26, but it depends on the size of the pie)

Savory Pie Crust

  • Place the flour into a mixing bowl with the shortening.
  • Cut together until it looks like corn meal.
  • Then, in a 1 cup measuring cup, combine 1/2 egg (slightly beaten), and apple cider vinegar.
  • Fill the cup with cold water up to 1/2 cup.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients & stir with a fork until combined.
  • Then use your hands to clump the dough together in a ball.
  • Flour the counter and roll out the dough.
