Enjoy a classic in a smaller portion. These Individual Chicken 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 good pot pie and what I love about this family recipe is that it is all mine. 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 pot pie recipe because it doesn’t have a bottom crust. I love being able to give everyone their own portion.
It’s neatly contained and creamy delicious. Great comfort food with less guilt.
Just trim out the right shapes for the top of your bowls.
Pre-made puff pastry works well too as does refrigerated biscuits.
Just get creative. And don’t be afraid to let that pie topper spill overboard. Yum!
This is the perfect size for just me! I love that with individual portions you get plenty of crust! ~ Sandra

How to Make Individual Chicken Pot Pies
The filling for these mini pot pies take 15 minutes to stir up on the stove top before pouring them into bowls and topping them with piecrust or puff pastry.
Sauté the onions in butter for a few minutes in a medium-size pot before slowly stirring in milk and chicken broth.
You’ll create a creamy roux after a few minutes. Add salt and pepper.
Chop up the rotisserie chicken into bite-size pieces and add it and the frozen vegetables to the creamy mixture.
Stir well before filling each individual bowl. Top of each bowl with strips of piecrust or puff pastry in a crisscross fashion.
Bake these mini pot pies at 425° for about 30 minutes until golden brown.
