Chicken Spinach Turnovers

These Chicken Spinach Turnovers are A-MAZING! Not only are they delicious, but healthy and protein packed as the dough is made with …. GREEK YOGURT!

This dough recipe is by far my favorite as it is so versatile. I make pizza, bagels, turnovers, bread knots, you name it! We like to add cheese to the dough and its soooo good!

For these turnovers you will need:

227 g/ 1 cup of plain greek yogurt (we love Fage 0% or 2%)

5 oz all purpose flour ( I highly recommend weighing the flour out)

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

8 oz shredded chicken

4 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese

1/2 onion diced

1/2 cup frozen spinach or 1 cup if using fresh

1 cup of shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a greased saucepan add chopped onion and spinach. While that mixture is cooking, in a medium bowl mix yogurt, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix the dough until it forms a ball. Next, I like using a silpat/baking mat to roll the dough out. This also makes it easy to transfer to the baking sheet. If you don’t have one, that no problem, just make sure the baking sheet is greased before adding the turnovers. Roll the dough out to a thin layer should be about 1/2 inch think or about 10-12 inches in length. Cut the rolled dough into four equal parts.

By now the onions should be translucent, and the spinach cooked fully. Add chicken and cream cheese to mixture until combined. Add mixture to the four divided parts. Add the mixture to one side of the dough so that you can fold the other side over and be able to seal the sides. Seal the sides with a fork. Add shredded cheese to the top of each turnover. Bake for 22-25 mins. Let the turn overs cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
