Reviews for Tiny Chicken Turnovers
Everybody loved and I was able to make ahead of time! I tried with pie crust but will try with different dough products. Good switch on a pot luck if everyone is bringing desserts.
surprisingly flavorful and very good! the pastry was really flaky and everyone said "they just melt in your mouth." however i can't help but wonder if the full cup of butter is necessary... next time i might try less butter. but they were really really good! give it a try!
Love this idea for left over chicken & veggies! I followed the filling recipe as is, adding about 8 sprigs of leftover asaragus, chopped. To save timeI used dehydrated chopped onions and canned low fat crescent rolls in place of recipe's dough. I made 4 large turnovers, using two crescents for each (one on top and one on bottom). We dipped them in marinara, quick & delish!
I followed this recipe exactly and it was perfect! I did follow other peoples suggestion to chill the dough and that worked very well. I have 2- 2 year olds, 2- 3 year olds and a 4 year old and they all loved it (I did too)
This recipe was just okay for me. I found the pastry to be too oily, but the filling had a good taste to it.
I used a pre-made pastry for this recipe since I was short on time. I accidentally made the filling much, much too salty (I think it was my own fault though) and had to add more chicken and milk to remedy. Overall though, a great recipe and idea for appetizers. Turned out delicious despite my shortcomings!
These were okay. I thought they were missing something though, as they were kinda bland.
These were good. I added diced celery and just used Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits instead of making the dough. However, I still had to flour a board and roll out the biscuits so it was still messy and a bit time-consuming. They seem like they may appeal to a lot of people so maybe I will try making them ahead and freezing for the holidays.
I never actually got to taste these as they just flew off the plate, but my husband loved them. I used celery salt instead of poultry seasoning. I baked them and then froze as suggested. Definitely a make again. Many Thanks.
Very good. I sauted the chicken in poultry seasoning and added chopped carrots then wrapped in uncooked tortillas. Even with not making my own crust they took forever! They were a little dry, but tasted very good. Next time I'll add some liquid to make more 'pot pie' like and will probably make my own crust, but will definitely be sure to start early in the morning.
Made as written. This was just OK. We didnt hate it but we were not crazy about it either. It needed something just not sure what. Thanks anyway
excellent! These were a party favorite will make these over and over.
This Thanksgiving my three sons cooked to give me a break...one of my sons picked this recipe...but he used Pillsbury Grands Biscuits to make it a little easier...the filling was delicious, but the biscuits soaked up the juice. I guess that's what happens when you don't follow to the T...All in all, they were good...just a little dry...But tonight he's making only the sauce and pouring it over chicken cutlets like a gravy...it was that delicious! Thanks!
The filling in this recipe is delicious. However, the pastry is a total nightmare to make. It tasted too bready. I think it would be wonderful with the round crescents and a lot easier to prepare.
These were pretty tasty but took a lot of effort. Maybe they will get easier with practice.
This was my first dinner success were everyone, 4 year old, 20 month old and Daddy and I, ate it up! Yeah! I used 2 cans of pre-made dough and just rolled them like two logs. I used light cream cheese, a challot instead of onion and finely chopped spinach. LOVED IT and had no left overs.
I was looking for a few appetizer recipes for Christmas when I came across this. Since I had a little turkey left over from Thanksgiving I thought, "why not". I didn't have poultry seasoning so I just threw in a little Italian Seasoning. Used a premade crust that was just sitting in the fridge. These were delicious and everyone loved them. Had a little left over and a few days later added it to some French bread then broiled it. That was delicious too! Thanks for the awesome recipe. It will be our new tradition for after Thanksgiving leftovers.
I have been making this recipe for several years now. It's a great way of to use up left-over roasted chicken. It is a family, friends and neighbors favorite!
These were not the greatest
Pretty good! I used wonton wrappers instead and backed them
I didn't have time to make the dough so I just used canned bread dough. The filling is EXCELLENT. Everyone was raving over it. The dough part is time consuming (rolling it out and cutting, then re-rolling) but is well worth it. I have been asked to make these for 4th of July!
What a great appetizer! Time consuming though...so be prepared. I used a fully cooked whole chicken from the super market and pre-made pie crusts. If you go this route, I'd advise rolling the pie crust out thinner that it comes out of the package...makes more of them and you can taste the filling more. I added slightly more onion, and actually a little cinnamon (by accident - grabbed the wrong spice!), and they were still awesome. I made 110 of them for a baby shower and froze them ahead of time. This is a definite keeper! I know I'll be making these again and again. Even my finicky 4-year-old loved them! She called them "little pies."
These were pretty good. I think I should have rolled the dough thinner. Make an impressive looking appetizer for a party.
2018 update ... I'd take a picture, but they look just like the one on the recipe! Every time I make these, there are never any leftovers! The flavor is consistently good, and more importantly to me, the pastry is consistently excellent!! I always get compliments on the pastry as well as the flavor. Recipe is foolproof!
Followed recipe, but it tasted like it needed something and it was very bland.
These totally fell apart when people tired to pick them up. To add to that the dough didn't taste good and wouldn't turn over when I was making them. Not sure if I did something wrong, but this was a total bust.
The filling was good, but I was expecting to be able to pick these up and eat them. Instead, the crust was so crumbly that it just fell apart so they have to be eaten with a fork. The taste was decent, but I felt the crust needed work. I wanted bigger turnovers so used a 4 inch cutter. When I used all the butter called for, the dough was difficult to work with and gooey, sticking to the counter and everything else despite using flour on the counter and on top of dough while rolling. I had to add more flour to the dough. I made another batch of dough using a little less butter and it was easier to work with.
took these to a girls night dinner. I didn't have time to make my crust so I used store bought sprinkled the paprika on the dough the rolled it in with my rolling pin. I also did an egg wash on the crust. Everyone wanted the recipe.
Enjoyed these. They tasted like mini-chicken-pot pies. Enjoyed dipping mine in plain yogurt. I took a shortcut and used up some leftover commercial pie crust...just sprinkled some cayenne pepper on it. Yummy!
Used leftover turkey, vegetable broth, shredded carrots and finely chopped broccoli
