Enjoy all of the satisfying comfort of chicken pot pie with these fun and tasty mini chicken pot pies. This recipe is great for using up leftover chicken and bakes in just 12 minutes.
I made these mini chicken pot pies with my kids last week. They loved helping me cut out the biscuit dough and pour pot pie filling into the muffin tin. They also devoured all of them in record time. I’m sure it had something to do with them helping in the kitchen, but also that they were delicious.
I had to steal the last one away so I could snap a few pictures to share for you. They were so good and filling. Plus, who doesn’t like handheld food?
I have shared other handheld recipes in the past: Meatloaf Muffins with Potato Frosting, Sloppy Joe Pockets, and (one of the most popular recipes on my blog), Make Ahead Scrambled Eggs. And then there is the mini desserts like S’mores Brownie Cups and Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes. Yeah, we like our “mini” foods around here. 🙂
