A fun recipe using canned biscuit dough that kids can make, these Mini Chicken Pot Pies make a delicious appetizer, fun family night supper, or a great lunch box protein!
Mini Chicken Pot Pies Recipe
This year, I’m trying to be more intentional with empowering Ella to step up around the house and take on more responsibility.
In addition to organizing the recycle bins and helping out with laundry (sorting and folding) she now is in charge of making supper once a week. It’s definitely her favorite chore!
This mini chicken pot pie recipe is a great option for kids to make. It’s super simple, absolutely delicious and includes both protein and veggies.
If you want to skip the canned cream of chicken soup, my friend Kylee has a recipe for homemade cream of chicken soup that you can swap in (though you’d probably want to make it in advance as it would probably be too much for the kids to handle).
You can also use homemade biscuit dough, but the canned biscuits do make this a lot easier for little chefs. You can alternatively use crescent roll dough, puff pastry dough, or even pie dough.
This is a great recipe to use up leftover chicken. You need about 1 chicken breast for the filling. It doesn’t need to have been plain either – the seasoning would definitely add to this recipe.
It makes a great appetizer or party food, but we enjoyed it as our main dish along with a side of roasted veggies and Ella took the leftover mini pot pies in her lunch box the next day.
You could also use this method to make mini beef pot pies, mini deep dish pizzas, mini Shepard’s pies, ham pot pies, etc.
Can I freeze these Mini Chicken Pot Pies? Absolutely! Although they are definitely best enjoyed fresh, you can freeze the mini chicken pot pies in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months after baking. (This set of freezer containers is a crazy bargain.)

How to Make Mini Chicken Pot Pies with Biscuit Dough
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Grease a muffin pan and set aside.
Pour the cream of chicken soup into a medium- or small-sized mixing bowl. (Do not add the milk or water called for on the can. We are using the soup as a cream sauce, we do not want it to be too thin.)
Add in the mixed veggies (they can still be frozen if using frozen) and cooked chicken.
Stir to coat the veggies and meat completely in the sauce.
Press an individual piece of biscuit dough into each of the muffin cavities. Press and flatten the dough along the sides of the muffin tin to create a cup.
Scoop about 2 Tablespoons of the filling mixture into each biscuit.
Bake the mini chicken pot pies for about 20-22 minutes until the biscuit dough is golden brown and the filling mixture is puffed up (as shown).
Let cool slightly before using a knife or offset spatula to remove the pies from the muffin pan.
