Chicken Pot Pie Pockets! The classic comfort food turned into a hand pie, and it is so easy! Perfect for a go-to weeknight dinner or freezer meal!

Hot Pocket Chicken Pot Pies

OH. MY. GOODNESS.

One of my most popular post these last few months has been my super simple homemade pot pie. It has been made hundreds of times, and if I am being completely honest, is one of our personal go-to dinners! It takes less than ten minutes to put it together and get that baby into the oven.

When my child suggested a hot pocket version I was shocked. Why, oh why, did I not think of this genius idea??

And that, ladies and gents, is how this recipe handheld chicken pot pies came to be. It’s easy, delicious, and freezer friendly!

Pot Pie Ingredients

Chicken Pot Pie Pocket Ingredients:

  • Pie dough- we use pre made pie dough found in the refrigerator section of the grocery store
  • Rotisserie chicken- Alternatively, you could use pre cooked and chopped chicken. 
  • Cream of chicken- We really like the added flavor of cream of chicken. I have also seen several homemade versions online if you prefer.
  • Chicken broth
  • Frozen mixed veggies- thawed! 
  • Thyme and onion powder
How to make homemade hot pockets

How to make homemade hot pockets:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine the chicken, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, vegetables, thyme, and onion powder in a large mixing bowl. Stir until incorporated.
  3. Starting with one pie dough round, use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut the rounded edges off creating a square or rectangle. Cut the square into quarters.
  4. Spoon 1/4 cup of the filling onto the center of one rectangle. Brush the edges of the pastry with water. Place a second piece of dough directly on top, pinching the edges closed.
  5. Repeat with remaining dough until you have 12 pies.
  6. Poke the top of each with a fork to create holes for air to escape during the baking process.
  7. Whisk the egg and brush onto the tops of each pie. Bake 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
How to freeze homemade hot pockets

How to freeze this recipe:

Ok, I mentioned this recipe was freezer friendly. Let’s walk through how to do that! It makes SO MANY hand pies, which is great for a large family, but not so much when you are a tiny family of 3. Here is how we froze these to use later:

  1. Follow the recipe all the way through cooking the pies. 
  2. Allow them to cool completely. 
  3. Wrap each homemade hot pocket in plastic wrap. This is super important to help prolong the life of the pot pies and fight freezer burn.
  4. Place each wrapped pie in a freezer safe zip top bag and label. 

When you are ready to enjoy, remove the plastic, wrap in a paper towel, and heat 1 to 2 minutes in the microwave.
