Grilled Chicken with Roasted Beet & Sweet Potato Pies
There is no recipe for this dish.
Last night I had a Roasted Beet & Sweet Potato Salad for dinner. This time, I topped it with a bit of grilled chicken (quickly marinated in lemon juice, olive oil and Epicure Herb & Garlic Dip Mix). I made some extra veggies and chicken so I would have lunch for today.
This morning while looking through the fridge, I found left over puffy pastry from when I made Turkey Pies.
Roll out your puff pastry into a rectangle. Place beets, sweet potatoes and shredded chicken on half. Add some feta if you have it. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold over, pinch closed to seal, cut a few slits in the top, brush with egg wash, and bake in oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Everything inside is already cooked so it was just the pastry that needed a quick bake & brown.
These pies (as well as the Turkey Pies) freeze well too so they make a quick and easy re-heatable dinner.
