      2 cups shredded cooked chicken breasts
      1 cup Mexican style, 4-cheese blend, finely shredded
      1/3 cup chipotle aioli
      2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
      1 egg
      1 tbs water
      14.1-oz pkg ready-to-use refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
      1 tsp chili powder
      Heat oven to 375º.
      Combine first 4 ingredients. Whisk egg and water until blended.
      Unroll 1 pie crust on lightly floured surface. Roll out to 12-inch diameter with rolling pin.

      Cut into 8 (4-inch) rounds with biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place in single layer on parchment-covered baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pie crust.
