Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons salted butter
  • 1/4 cup celery diced
  • 1/4 cup onion diced
  • 1/4 cup carrots diced
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1 cup sliced Curry Chicken diced (I used Boar's Head Curry Chicken, but you can use any flavor you prefer or even cooked rotisserie chicken)
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • flake sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add butter to a skillet over medium high heat. Toss in celery, onion, and carrots and stir to coat in the butter.
  2. Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until veggies are tender and fragrant.
  3. Stir in the flour and curry powder and stir to coat. Once the veggies are all coated and a paste forms, stir in the chicken broth. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Allow to thicken for about 1-2 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  4. Stir in the sour cream and the sliced chicken breast. Set aside.
  5. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the puff pastry sheets. Use the bottom of a glass or a 3" round cookie cutter to cut out circles in the dough. The two sheets should yield about 18 circles total.
  6. Add 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture to one half of each circle. Moisten the edge of each circle with a small amount of water, and then fold over the dough to cover the mixture
  7. and press to close. Use a fork to close each hand pie. Lay each completed hand pie on a greased baking sheet, about 1" apart.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough.
  9. In a small bowl, combine whisked egg and water. Brush each hand pie with egg mixture and then sprinkle lightly with flake sea salt.
  10. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until crisped and golden. Serve warm.
  11. Enjoy!
