Chicken Stuffed Bundles

THIS RECIPE has been in our family for 40 years! My four kids loved this dish growing up, and it's still their number one request when they come to dinner. My husband's pet name for this is "great wads of dough"...but he eats every bit on his plate. -Kathryn Burris, Mariposa, California

Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water; knead gently. Roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness; cut into six squares. Place a heaping tablespoonful of chicken mixture in the center of each square. Fold dough over and press edges together firmly to seal. Drop bundles into simmering gravy. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until pastry flakes.

    These were yummy! I used a little more fresh onion rather than the dried minced onion and used green bell pepper instead of the celery because that's what we had on hand.

    I made this with an ingredient mixture of chopped chicken, canned corn and chopped broccoli, instead of the celery, onion flakes and parsley. When cooked in the gravy it came out a bit doughy and soft vs. flaky but it was scrumptious! My husband liked it too. I'll make it again.
