1 ½ Tbsp all-purpose chicken seasoning mix, divided

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 10-inch skillet, add in oil and cook ground chicken for 5 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Add in sweet corn, instant mashed potato flakes, kale, and instant gravy mix and ½ cup water. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until the mash potato flakes have moistened. Set aside.

5. Bringing all the edges of the dough into the center, fold the dough around the filling. Seal and roll into a ball.

6. Place on baking tray lined with parchment paper and brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle the remaining ½ tablespoon of all-purpose chicken seasoning mix.

7. Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet and serve warm.
