Tuscan Chicken and Broccoli Hand Pies | The Girl Who Ate Everything
Because I am a food blogger, my family is subjected to an array of new recipes every single week. We always have Taco Tuesday and pasta at least one night. But then there are nights where we are crazy busy with practices for my kid’s sports and dinner is the last thing I want to worry about. I’m a stickler about always having veggies in our meals. It makes me feel better because I know my kids are getting at least something nutritious throughout the day.

These Tuscan Chicken and Broccoli Hand Pies sound fancy but they are super easy with only 5 ingredients. Of course we all would love to eat a whole pie by ourselves but making them individually portioned like this is a lot less messy and tells our brain when to stop eating (a problem I have).
Tuscan Chicken and Broccoli Hand Pies | The Girl Who Ate EverythingHere’s your line up of ingredients.
Tuscan Hand PiesI used Green Giant™ Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli. I love Green Giant™ Valley Fresh Steamers. I honestly have been using them for years. It’s seasoned broccoli that you can steam in minutes in the microwave which I love because I hate using and washing my steamer. Broccoli is the one vegetable that ALL of my family loves.
Tuscan Hand Pies1It’s as easy as quartering your pie crust and placing the filling on one side and topping it with the other crust. You can crimp the crust like I did or just use a fork and go around the edges.

Tuscan Chicken and Broccoli Hand Pies
Servings: 4 full size hand pies or 8 mini pies
Ingredients
  • 1 box Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
  • 1 bag (11.8 oz) Green Giant Seasoned Steamers frozen Tuscan seasoned broccoli
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sundried tomatoes , packed in oil and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 °. Soften pie crust according to package directions.
  2. Cook broccoli as directed on the bag.
  3. In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese, sundried tomatoes, chicken, and cooked broccoli. Mix well.
  4. Cut each pie crust into 4 equal wedges. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture onto one of the wedges of pie dough and top with another wedge on top. Press the edges together and crimp the edges up. Cut a couple 1-inch slices in the top to help vent the steam. Repeat with the remaining pie dough making 8 pies total.
  5. Place the hand pies on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Recipe Notes
You can even make mini versions of these. Cut each pie crust into 8 wedges instead of 4. Your kids will love their individual mini pies.

I love using rotisserie chicken in these and it makes preparation even easier.

  1. If I divide the crust into 4 pieces that will be 2 hand pies per crust, not 4

  2. These are like little a chicken pot pie. They are beautiful and I know I could probably eat at least two!!

  3. I tried this tonight. Filling is great. Pie crust.. yuck. Very greasy and gross. Maybe with wonton wrappers – more like an ragoon. Not a dinner item for sure.

      Sorry you didn’t like it. I actually use pie crusts for dinners a lot and don’t find them greasy.

  4. You mentioned making mini pies for your kids. Did the baking time or temp vary for the miniature version?

  5. Do you have a recommendation for dressing up the broccoli if you can’t find the Tuscan seasoned broccoli from Green Giant?

  6. This seems like something that would benefit from using phyllo dough…

  7. Just made these with peas and corn in place of the broccoli since thats just what i had on hand. It was so good and the crust was perfect like a chicken pot pie!! Nothing like the previous comment stated!

  8. These were delicious and so easy to make! Thanks!
