Everyday Food Chicken and Sweet Potato Hand Pies
This recipe is from Martha Stewart's "Everyday Food" magazine. It sounds deceptively simple when you read it, but it's not - especially if you've never worked with phyllo dough (like me!). However, it's not terribly difficult. I entered the calorie info myself, since their calculations just didn't sound right given the ingredients (I was right).
I doubled the spices and also, I used the 1/2 cup heavy cream that the recipe calls for, but you could really get away with no heavy cream, or 1/4 cup. 1/2 cup was a LOT.
Prep time is based on the ingredients for the pies being pre-cooked. Roast the sweet potatoes or squash and grill or bake the chicken the day before you want to have these, if you don't have time in the afternoon to start dinner early. Toss the potatoes/squash with 2 tsp olive oil (included in calorie count) and roast in 400-degree oven until tender, about 25-30 minutes.Submitted by: MEGS81
