Recipe Box: Mini Chicken Pot Pies

pMk2plqKzuUvRmj1nAJxcFbm.jpeg:Amazon:photo

Throughout my years of throwing dinner parties, I have learned that my menu changes depending on the type of guests I am entertaining. For example, if I’m hosting a girl’s night, I will make sure my recipes are light, healthy, and a bit unique. On the other hand, if I invite couples over to watch a football game, I know that the boys will usually want something a little heartier. Today’s recipe is great because it’s a healthy version of a hearty comfort food. Plus, everyone loves it!

Here is my recipe for mini chicken pot pies that are sure to impress your guests at your next get-together…

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Ingredients:

  • muffin pan
  • 2 rolls of whole wheat refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 cup diced russet potatoes
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 cup diced green beans
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup roasted chicken, shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper for taste
  • 5 cups chicken broth (to make these heartier, use cream of chicken soup)


Instructions:

1. Preheat the over to 425 degrees. Then, in a large bowl, mix together your diced vegetables, chicken broth, eggs, and shredded chicken. (For the chicken, I just bought a whole roasted chicken from the market, pulled the meat off the bone, and shredded it.)

2. Take your whole-wheat dough and, using your fingers, divide it into the muffin holes, forming a mini crust in each.

3. Fill each muffin hole with your pot pie mixture. I filled mine up pretty full (but not so they overflowed) because I wanted more filling than dough in my pot pies.

4. Sprinkle a touch of salt and pepper on top of each pot pie.

5.    Bake for 25-30 minutes until each one is golden brown.

It’s pretty simple, and my guests always get excited when I serve these savory treats (especially the boys). I have also tried sautéing my veggies before adding them into the mixture to soften them and give the pot pies a little bit different texture. Both versions are delicious.

    I made a really yummy biscuit chicken pot pie last week. I based my recipe off one I found on BudgetBytes.com but instead of making my own dough I just used Grands biscuits. I made the insides, scooped it in a pan, and then put the biscuit discs over it. It baked up nicely and really good!

  • Petra Zeller

    Mhmm looks so good. Always these little pie’s. Thanks for sharing. You looking pretty Lauren.
    Wish you and all readers a great day.

    They’re sooo cute!

  • Karissa

    I like to put dried cranberries in my chicken pot pie – adds a nice hint of sweetness xo

  • Kali14

    Yes! Making these for the kids on Thanksgiving. :)

  • Case

    Measurements were way off I was left with way too much filling. Also I think it was just to watery, I even used cream of chicken like she suggested.

  • Terri

    For the vegetarians in my life I’ve done a very similar recipe but used vegetable broth. I’ve also used left-over cream of mushroom soup (homemade or try the Pacifica brand).

  • daniellem522

    Did the vegetables need to be pretty cooked or frozen? I made the pot pies and the potatoes and carrot were still hard .. I am soo lost!
