Mini Chicken Pot Pies are a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey, and making them is so easy it's actually fun! Just press some biscuit dough into muffin-pan cups, then fill with a simple mixture of chicken and veggies in a creamy sauce made with cream of chicken soup. The cream of chicken soup transforms the chicken and veggies into a savory pot pie filling in one step- so all you have to do is sprinkle some Cheddar cheese on top and bake until golden brown. It's just 5 ingredients and 35 minutes to get these cute and delicious mini pot pies on the table.

Heat the oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating, spray 10 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups with vegetable cooking spray. Stir the chicken, soup and vegetables in a medium bowl.
Roll or pat the biscuits to flatten slightly. Press the biscuits into the bottoms and up the sides of the muffin-pan cups. Spoon about 1/3 cup chicken mixture into each biscuit cup. Lightly press the chicken mixture down so it's level. Top each with about 2 teaspoons cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and the cheese is melted. Let the pot pies cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
Excellent way to use extra chicken!
Since I came across this recipe, I have made it almost every week to use up extra cooked chicken. To make it even easier, I bought frozen mini tart shells and they worked perfectly. I bring left-overs to work for lunch. Everyone in my family loves this recipe and it is so quick to make.
So easy, quick and tasty
I made 10 in muffin pan they came out perfect. I wouldn't do anything different when I make them again. I did use crescent rolls and I think that made them a little liter, biscuits some times can be so bulky you don't get to really taste the insides. so I would suggest using crescent. Once again 8 gone between my 2 girls and my Gram. If you wanted to to make 12 you would need more then once can of crescents. But they were great!
Easy to make. Ingredients blend well
This is a quick and simple recipe. My picky nieces and nephew loved it as well as my mom who is an exceptional cook. The only suggestion that I would make and that I did is to bake the biscuits a little before filling them. I baked long enough for bottom to be done. I also happened to use a mini muffin pan. I also increased bake time. All in all tasty. I added my own seasonings. Just a bit.
Good basic but needs help!
We make turkey pot pies with leftover holiday foods. I tried this recipe with my 4yo granddaughter and decided it was to bland and needed some more nutritional value.
We sauteed diced chicken in olive oil with minced onions and celery. When cooled added minced parsley and baby kale. Diced red potatoes, salt n peppered, and microwaved for 4 minutes. Also took advise from other reviews to warm up frozen mixed veggies - worked great!
Mixing all ingredients- cream chicken soup, veggies, potatoes, chicken and we used the prepared biscuits as suggested. Baked. They looked soooo yummy! Filling was fabulous... The biscuit dough was too much bread for us. We will try again with crescent dough next time!
Thanks so much :)
I followed the recipe exactly and they were close to raw. Cooked them an additional 5 mins and the bottom of biscuits was still raw. Won't make them again
Our test kitchen retested the recipe with various types of biscuits. Our recipe calls for a 10 count biscuit (12 ounces) and when tested with that size, there were no issues and the biscuits were baked beautifully. However, we know that there is such a variety of size and type of biscuits available so we also tested the recipe with a larger, 8 count biscuit that comes in a 16 ounce package. When we tested with that biscuit, it was not fully cooked after the specified time. If you make the recipe again, check to assure you are using a 10 count/12 oz package of biscuits, and if you still feel they are not cooked through, add additional baking time.
