  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken or turkey
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  1. In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and carrot and cook 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle flour on top of onion mixture. Cook and stir for 1 minute.
  3. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and half-and-half.
  4. Add cream cheese, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon so that it melts and blends into the sauce. Cook until bubbling and thickened, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Add salt, garlic powder, thyme, and pepper.

  6. Stir in chicken and peas. Remove from heat.
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  8. Unroll piecrusts and use a rolling pin to roll them slightly thinner. You want to be able to cut 4 circles out of each pie crust.
  9. Use a bowl that's approximately 5 to 6 inches across to cut a total of 8 circles. Roll the scraps together and cut 2 more circles.

  10. Place filling(as much as you can and still be able to fold over the dough and seal it) on one side of a circle of dough.
  11. In a small bowl, whisk together egg white and milk. Use your finger or a small pastry brush to wet the edges of the dough with egg wash so that they will stick together. Fold dough over, pressing to seal edges. Crimp around edges with a fork.
  12. Repeat with remaining dough circles. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush tops with egg wash.
  13. Place in oven and bake for 15 to 17 minutes.
