Tempt My Tummy Tuesday ~ Chicken and Cheese Turnovers

Blessed with Grace

I'm so excited for my review they gave me a one year subscription to Relish! Which leads me to a new yummy recipe that I made for the boys. Ok mine so are not pretty, but oh so yummy!!! This is one of the easy recipes you can whip up in a few minutes, they give an option of freezing also. I of course have a way too small of a freezer so we have a cook as you go plan :)

2boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2tablespoons olive oil
111-ounce can corn, drained
110.75-ounce can cream of chicken soup
1cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
115-ounce package refrigerated Pillsbury pie dough
1large egg , beaten
1tablespoon poppy seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

[1] Place the chicken breasts on a small, rimmed baking sheet or pie pan and drizzle with olive oil. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool and cut into small cubes.

[2] In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, corn, soup and cheese. Unfold the piecrusts, according to package instructions.

[3] On a lightly floured surface, roll each piecrust into a 13 inch circle and cut into quarters. Spoon about ½ cup of the chicken mixture along one straight side of each quarter, about 1/2 inch from the edge.

[4] Brush the edges with egg and fold other straight side of the quarter over the filling.

[5] Seal the edges with a fork. Prick turnover several times with a fork. Brush egg over top of crusts and sprinkle with poppyseeds. Wrap each pocket with plastic wrap and place them all inside a large ziptop freezer bag. Seal the bag and affix the cooking label and lay flat in the freezer.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
1. Unwrap each frozen pocket and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pockets are golden brown. Serve immediately.


  1. This kind of dish--chicken, cheese, wrapped in pastry--is so appealing to me! I'm always wanting to make empanadas or some other "pocket" kind of thing. :)

  2. Both this and the chili sound really good! I want to come eat at your house :)

  3. I will have to try this one. I dislike chicken so I try to avoid making it but my kids would love this!

  4. Mmm.. can you say yummy!

    and by the way.. can i puuuuuh-leeeeeze come live with you.. if you feed me all these goodies i promise i'll clean the kitchen afterwards.. lol!!!!

  5. oooh, yum, I'm totally going to make that sometime. I've written it down. Looks so good.

  6. You picture looks delicious! I wanted to eat it right off of your blog. I can't wait to make this one.

  7. Those really look like fun! They'd be perfect to make with all my pheasant that I keep putting off using-LOL!

  8. Oh how fun! And that recipe looks great.

  9. That's it. I am booking my plane ticket to your house right now.

  10. That is new to me I'll definitely try this kind of recipe. Looks yummy and oh, I gotta go to the store now and the necessary ingredients for this yummy chicken. Thanks for the recipe.

  11. Oh that sounds great!! I think that is the perfect addition to my menu planning.

  12. Interesting on the pie crust v the regular crescent rolls. Again, I would totally eat this but sadly not the wee ones (cheese = bad for Mister Man because he thinks cheese is yucky (so not my child) and Little Miss with the dairy). I just want normal kids for once ;) It sounds great! And hey - I'm all for the looks don't matter. It's all about the taste!

  13. okay, I went to the store and got the ingredients. I'm going to make this for dinner tomorrow night. Yum!

  14. I really wish I wasn't allergic to chicken.

  15. Different ~ they look good! How will I ever have time to make all the wonderful recipes you post.

  16. This is like a hand held chicken pot pie, but you know I HATE peas, and this has NO peas... I love this, I would make this and eat this. Thank you so much for sharing. Somehow I missed it on Relish! Don't you just love their service? I am so gonna miss mine when the subscription runs out. :-(

  17. Wow, the turnovers look amazing, I am going to the grocery store later this afternoon and adding the ingrediants to my list. Yum!!!
