These mini chicken pot pies are ridiculously easy. Seriously… they only have 4 ingredients! And you can make them from start to finish in about 30 minutes. Serve them with a little side salad and it makes a quick and simple weeknight dinner!
Remember when you were a kid, and you imagined what you’d be like when you became a parent? I was convinced I was going to sew all of my kids clothes (ha!) and that I was going to make gourmet meals every single night. (Oh dreams…)
But then a funny thing happened. I had my three kids, and I realized that being a parent is about a million times harder than I ever thought it would be. When everyone gets home from school and daycare at the end of the day, things are kind of like a zoo around here! So when I find a simple, kid friendly recipe, I’m totally on board with it!
These mini chicken pot pies feel like comfort food to me. Somehow, the combination of chicken, veggies and fresh biscuits smells soooooo good when it’s baking! And that perfect, golden brown crust, and bubbly filling? Mmmmm… so good when they are fresh out of the oven!
Mini Chicken Pot Pies
The full printable recipe is at the end of this post, but here’s what you’ll need:
- Mixed Frozen Vegetables
- Cream of Chicken Soup
- Refrigerated Biscuit Dough
Only 4 ingredients! I love how easy it is!! If you prefer the taste of crescent roll dough, you could definitely use it instead of the biscuit dough. The biscuit dough comes in individual circles though, so it does make it a lot easier than fussing with cutting circles from the crescent roll dough.
This is a GREAT recipe for using leftover chicken! You can use a rotisserie chicken, leftover home cooked chicken, or if it’s easier, just fry up a fresh chicken breast and chop it up. If you’re really in a hurry, you can also use a can of chicken (I like the canned chicken from Costco), but it does taste better when you use fresh or leftover chicken instead of canned.
Buy a package of the frozen vegetables with carrots, peas, green beans and corn. And make sure it is mostly defrosted before you cook it. I defrosted mine at 20% power in the microwave for about 5 minutes.
Mix together the can of cream of chicken soup, the mixed vegetables and the chicken.
Separate the biscuits and place them into a greased muffin tin.
Use your fingers to press down the middle of the dough to thin it out, and then stretch the dough up the sides of the muffin tin as high as it will go. I ended up stretching out the dough twice, letting it rest a couple minutes in between.
Then add the chicken filling inside each of the cups. I added about 2 tablespoons into each of the mini chicken pot pies.
Bake them at 375F for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
Use a knife to cut around the edges if they stick. Mine came out really easily, but it will depend on how much of the nonstick coating is left on your muffin pan. If you’ve scrubbed off most of the nonstick coating, make sure you use some extra cooking spray to keep things loose.
Mmmm… that delicious filling…
Definitely keep an eye on them while they are cooking and when they start to brown, take them out of the oven. I kept mine in the oven for probably 2 minutes too long and the sides ended up being a little darker than I wanted them. Still delicious though!
