Making The Pie Crust (Or Using Pre Made Dough)

I found the cutest mini pie crusts while grocery shopping recently. Super easy to use, just thaw the dough, tear on the perforated lines and place in a muffin tin to use to make mini chicken pot pie.

If you have a favorite homemade pie dough, you definitely could use that, but I decided to go with the easy route on my dough. You don’t have to bake the crust separately, just spray the muffin pan with nonstick spray, then place the dough into muffin tins.

Preparing The Filling

Veggie Roux:

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion and celery and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the diced potatoes and any other mixed vegetables you like, cooking for an additional 2 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the garlic and stir for 1 minute. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to coat evenly. Cook for 1-2 minutes to remove the raw flour taste.

Add Broth and Milk:

Gradually pour in the chicken broth and milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning to taste.

Add Chicken:

Add your cooked chicken to the creamy filling. I cook up a batch of chicken every week for different recipes. You could use any leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken. Stir and coat the chicken. Turn down to low and let it simmer for a couple minutes before turning off the heat.

Assembling The Pot Pies

Add the Chicken Mixture:

Fill the prepped pie crusts with the chicken pot pie filling. Fill it as full as you can. If you like you can top with a sprinkle of parsley.

Bake and Enjoy:

Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.

  1. They were made in a regular muffin tin. You could use mini ones if you want, but the pie crust I purchased would be too big the mini muffin tins. If you used the mini muffin tins you’d need to cook for less time. They would be adorable!!!

  2. Can’t ‘star’ rate this recipe cause haven’t made them yet, but they sure do look appealing.
    Now, when you say ‘mini’ ; you talking about the real mini size (1 1/2 in) or the regular size muffin pan (2 1/2 in) size.
    Whenever I think of mini size, I’m thinking of the (1 1/2 in.) small size muffin compartments.
    Thank You
