Enjoy a classic in a smaller portion. These individual pot pies are mini servings but just as delicious as the whole pie!
Do you ever wish you could just eat the whole pie yourself?
Now you can!
I love a homemade chicken pot pie recipe and what I love about this family recipe is that it is all mine.
As my Aunt Mary would say, “It’s very tasty but messy on the plate since it has no bottom crust. That’s why we do individual pies.”
This recipe is slightly different from my classic chicken pot pie recipe because it doesn’t have a bottom crust.
I love being able to give everyone their own portion.
This individual chicken pot pie recipe is neatly contained with a creamy sauce and it’s delicious.
This classic dish is great comfort food with less guilt.
Just trim out the right shapes for the tops of your bowls.
Pre-made puff pastry crust works well too as does refrigerated biscuit dough or crescent rolls.
Just get creative.
And don’t be afraid to let that pie topper spill overboard.
Yum! Even picky eaters will go back for more!
This is the perfect size for just me! I love that with individual portions you get plenty of crust! ~ Sandra
