Tasty Tuesday: Individual Chicken Pot Pies


Welcome to a new little segment I've decided to do each week: Tasty Tuesdays!  I often post recipes on Tuesdays, so I thought "why not make it official?".

Next week I might even do a link-up so you could share a recipe, too~would you be interested

This week I've planned really child-friendly dinner menus since my hubby is out of town.  However, I want them to be menus that I enjoy, too.  Last night we had one of my favorites, too: individual chicken pot pies.  

Now before you decide that this is just another variation of the same thing, let me tell you it's a tad bit different--it has cheese!  That's always a plus in my book and especially in my kids' books!  Two kinds of cheese, as a matter of fact!  My son (who is by-far the pickiest in our family) loves this meal and eats his whole bowl.  That makes me happy:)


Individual Chicken Pot Pies
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup of shredded, cooked chicken
(I used turkey last night)
1 can cream of chicken soup
(I prefer to use this recipe)
Dash of onion powder
Dash of celery salt
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup milk
*****
Preheat oven to 400F.  
Mix together vegetables, chicken (or turkey), and soup in a medium bowl. 
Divide mixture evenly between 4 (2-cup) ovenproof bowls*.
Top each bowl with shredded cheese.
Mix flour and baking powder together in a medium bowl.  
Cut in the cream cheese with a pastry blender (or a fork) until
the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  
Stir in milk with fork until dry ingredients are moistened and a 
dough forms.  
Divide dough into 4 parts.  Pat out each part into 5" circles on a
lightly floured surface.  Prick tops several times with fork to allow
steam to escape.  Place dough rounds on top of each chicken mixture.
Place bowls on a baking sheet for easy in-and-out from oven and 
bake for 25-30 minutes or until crust is nicely browned.  
*(If you don't have ovenproof bowls, place chicken mixture in a deep-dish
pie plate or a 1-qt. casserole dish.  Roll out biscuit dough into a 9" circle
and bake as directed).

The pot pie sounds yummy. I bet my kiddos would love it. Will be going on my menu plan for next week.

Trying it out tonight. So excited. Cheese makes any meal better in my book too. :) Thanks for sharing.
