Chicken Pot Pockets

I invented this recipe a few weeks ago and my husband came up with the name for it. It's basically a cross between a chicken pot pie and a hot pocket. It's really good!

Ingredients needed:

shredded or cubed chicken (I used the canned shredded chicken from Sam's Club)
boxed stuffing (prepared without butter)
frozen vegetables
pie crust
chicken gravy (I made it from the mix)

Preheat oven to 375 and prepare stuffing, then pepare the pie crust. I made a double crust batch and made 3 large pockets out of it (could make 4 if you made them smaller). Divide dough with knife into however many pockets you want to make. Roll out each piece into an oval on parchment paper. Fill with chicken/stuffing/frozen veggies. Fold over and flute edge. Transfer pockets to cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with egg white mixed with a little water. Bake 375 for about 20 minutes or until crust is golden. Serve with chicken gravy poured on top.

I love to see the temple (printable)

Temples are a very sacred and important part of my church and we have been encouraged to have a picture of the temple in our children's rooms so that it is an important part of their life from when they are young. I made this a couple of weeks ago with the Salt Lake City temple for my son's room and put it in a dollar store frame that I painted white. The saying is a line from a song about temples in the children's song book

If you want to download this printable I have it in 4X6, 5X7, or the original powerpoint file where I made it if you want to alter the colors, font, etc. Just go to file then download. The pdf looks a little weird on the site but once you download it and look at it in 100% it's fine, I promise.
