Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Forgo the large pot pie and make individual mini chicken pot pies in ramekins. This helps keep portions in control as you enjoy dinner.

Chicken pot pies are a delicious way to incorporate a lot of veggies into a meal. The chicken also gives you some protein. And the sauce that everything is cooked in brings it all together with a biscuit topping.

Well, sometimes it’s easier to have them as small portions. Whether you want them ready to go right away, or you are using them as part of a larger meal, having individual servings has advantages.

I prefer having individual cups because it helps control portion size. I love anything like this (such as Chicken A La Gurnham and my Vegan Pot Pie) so I tend to overeat. By having it portioned out, I grab one and that’s my meal.

It also helps with leftovers, because you can save them as is and reheat just the right amount for yourself the next day.

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 425F. Gather ingredients, making sure any vegetables are diced.

Heat the oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, sweet potato, carrot, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 8-10 minutes, until the sweet potato softens.

Stir in the flour to coat the vegetables. This will help to thicken the sauce.

Add the chicken broth and milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, for one minute.

Remove from the heat and stir in the chicken and salt, letting it cool for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, roll out the puff pastry until it has doubled in size. Cut the puff pastry into rounds to fit the top of your ramekins.

Place ramekins on a baking sheet and fill with the chicken mixture.

Top each with one of the puff pastry rounds.

Bake for about 15-18 minutes, until the puff pastry is golden brown. Garnish with thyme.

Leftovers

Cover the leftover mini chicken pot pies with either foil or plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. These will stay good for up to 3 days. To reheat, place ramekins in the oven or toaster oven at 350F for about 5-10 minutes until warmed through.
