How to Make These Delicious Mini Pot Pies
Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
Step One: Make the Roux
- In a large sauce pan or large skillet, melt butter over medium heat, until melted.
- Whisk in flour, until well combined. Add the seasonings and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Step Two: Make the Gravy
- Whisk in the chicken broth slowly followed by the milk. Whisky and cook over medium until it begins to thicken.
Step Three: Add Remaining Filling Ingredients
- Add the cooked chicken and vegetables into the creamy sauce, stir to combine. Continue cooking until mixture is heated through. Remove from the heat.
Make sure you cut up the chicken into small pieces so there aren’t oversize chucks in the filling.
Step Four: Prepare the Crescent Roll Cups
- Open the can of crescent rolls and roll out the dough onto a large cutting board.
- Press together the seams of the crescent roll dough, then cut the dough evenly into 8 squares using a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
- Place crescent dough squares into each prepared muffin cup, pressing down in the center.
Step Five: Fill the Cups and Bake
- Add a spoonful of the chicken pot pie filling evenly to each cup. If you have extra mixture, you can freeze it for a 2nd batch of cups. To thaw later, heat in a saucepan on medium-low until heated through.
- Bake in your 375-degree oven for 16-18 minutes until crescent rolls are a golden brown color.
- Cool for about 5 minutes, then remove your crescent chicken pot pie cups from the pan. Enjoy!
Easy Chicken Pot Pie Variations
- Chicken: This recipe is a great way to use up leftover chicken. You can also use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Or for a really fun twist, you can use leftover holiday turkey or ham.
- Vegetables: Frozen veggies make it super easy to prepare. But you can use chopped, cooked and cooled fresh vegetables. Fresh green beans, carrots, English peas and sauteed onions are a great choice. You can also use leftover diced baked potatoes in the filling.
- Crust: This crescent roll chicken pot pie recipe can also be made using biscuit dough instead. Flatten out the biscuits so the cups will not bake up too thick.
- Filling: If you want an extra rich sauce, you can use heavy cream instead of all milk, or you can add a little sour cream to the soup mixture.
Can I Put a Top on These Mini Chicken Pot Pies
You sure can. For an easy topping option, you can use additional crescent roll dough. Store bought refrigerated pie crust dough works well too. For a super flaky crust, you can use puff pastry.
Cut the dough into small pieces that are slightly larger than the mini-pot pies and bake until golden brown.
Can You Freeze Chicken Pot Pie After Baking?
If you have leftover pot pies, you can freeze them in an airtight container for about 2 months. Just keep in mind anytime you freeze baked pastry, its texture can become soggy when it thaws.
