  1. Sauté the Aromatics:
    • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. This will form the flavorful base of your filling.
  2. Cook the Chicken Mixture:
    • To the skillet, add the shredded boiled chicken, pizza oregano, chili flakes, black pepper powder, and salt. Stir well to combine and cook for 2-3 minutes, allowing the chicken to soak up the flavors.
  3. Add Vegetables:
    • Mix in the chopped onion, capsicum, and carrots. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until the vegetables are just tender but still crisp. The mixture should be flavorful and slightly moist.
  4. Prepare the Pockets:
    • Take your preferred dough (homemade or store-bought) and roll it out into small circles. Place a spoonful of the chicken and vegetable mixture onto one half of each circle.
  5. Form the Pockets:
    • Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape. Press the edges together to seal, using a fork to crimp the edges for a decorative touch.
  6. Cook or Freeze:
    • At this point, you can either cook the pockets in a preheated oven at 200°C (392°F) for 15-20 minutes until golden and crispy, or freeze them for later use. To freeze, place the pockets on a baking sheet, freeze until solid, then transfer to a freezer-safe bag or container.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    • If baking immediately, serve the Chicken Pizza Pockets warm with a side of marinara sauce or your favorite dipping sauce. If frozen, bake straight from the freezer, adding a few extra minutes to the cooking time.

These Chicken Pizza Pockets are a wonderful blend of convenience and flavor, making them a perfect snack, appetizer, or light meal. Enjoy the process of creating these delightful pockets and the ease of having a delicious meal ready whenever you need it.
