I love fall… TV
I’ve been waiting way too long for all my shows to come back.
Don’t get me wrong I have enjoyed the long lazy days of summers, by the pool, relaxing with the family, backyard parties, camping.
But now its on to the good stuff… TV!
Supernatural, Murdoch Mysteries, Grimm, Warehouse 13, Lost Girl and oh I found a new show, Sleepy Hollow. I never said my taste was any good. TV isn’t the only thing I love about fall. I love the weather, especially for running, not to cold , not to hot. And I need to be running, what with all this yummy comfort food coming back in style.
Like these oh so cute chicken hand pies, they’re small, which totally justifies eating a lot of them, like maybe 3? Why am I so hungry!
1-2 Chicken Breasts
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
½ Cup of Chopped Onions
½ Teaspoon of Salt and Pepper
2 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
2 Teaspoons of Herb de Province
2 Cups of Fresh Spinach
1 Egg, 1 Tablespoon of Water
2 ½ Cups of Flour
½ Teaspoon of Salt
1 Cup of Cold Butter, cut up into cubes
3 Tablespoons of Cold Water
To prepare the pastry, whisk flour and salt into a large bowl. Cut butter into the flour, using a pastry blender or 2 knives.
Pour water onto the bowl and mix, until it comes together ( I used my hands). Shape into 2 disks, and place in the fridge.
Bring a pot of water to a boil, add 1 tea bag and let soak for 2 minutes. Remove the tea bag. Place chicken into the pot and boil on low for 25 minutes, or until no loger pink.
Using 2 forks, shred the chicken, set a side.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add Onions, and garlic, and cook until translucent. Add chicken, add Herb de Province, cook for 5 minutes.
Toss in spinach, cook until wilted.
Pre-Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Take dough out of the fridge, on disk at a time. Roll out dough on a floured surface to ¼ inch thick. Cut dough into 5 -6 inch circles. I used a soup bowl and a knife to cut the shape out.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of chicken onto the pastry circles. Moisten the edges of half the circle. Fold into a half circle , and press the edges down with a fork. Cut a few slits in the top for air to get out
Whisk the egg and water together, and brush it over top of the chicken pie. This will make the top all brown.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops are all brown and smelling awesome.
