Individual Chicken Pot Pie

On Tuesday night I went to hang out with my friend Katie.  Well, as usual, she wowed me!  I show up and she has made the easiest little chicken pot pies I have ever seen!!  So I tried my hand at it last night.  Thanks Katie for the genius recipe off of Pillsbury

I don't actually like cooking so this was perfect for me:)

Ingrediants Needed:
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers refrigerated original biscuits - $2.00
1 can (19 oz) Progresso® Traditional chicken noodle soup - $2.00
1 to 2 tablespoons butter - most people already have - FREE
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning - most people already have in their spice rack - FREE
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder - I already had - FREE
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 oz) - I already had - FREE

TOTAL - $4.00 - Now that's my kind of cooking!!!

Before you start, heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 8 (2 1/4x1 1/4-inch) muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.

1.) Separate dough into 8 biscuits; separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Place 8 biscuit halves in sprayed muffin cups, pressing to cover bottom and sides.




2.) Drain soup; store in tightly covered container in refrigerator or freezer for later use. Spoon drained soup evenly into biscuit-lined cups. Place remaining biscuit halves over soup; gently seal each biscuit.



3.) Spread biscuit tops with butter. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Top each with 1/2 tablespoon cheese.

4.) Bake at 375°F. for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are golden brown. To remove from pan, run knife around edge of pies.

AND Hopefully it will turn out like THIS!



These were so easy, even I couldn't mess them up!  I have to admit.  I enjoyed making them too.  I made them for my friend who was coming over to hang out.  We haven't seen in each other in a few years so it was GREAT to catch up.  Then my sister-in-law "beans" came over and she enjoyed them as well!  Thanks Katie for helping a sad, helpless sister out with her cooking.  This one is being added to the list!

Looks good! However, I have to take issue with the "free ingredients". You had to buy them at some point! I would be curious how much this actually costs per person.

@ gift ink the spices were all wedding gifts :) and butter is about $1.29 for 4 sticks. Cheese is about $2.79 for a bag. I would say it costs about $2 a person. Thankfully all those things are easily used for other cooking :)

No way, I was thinking about making a chicken pot pie tomorrow night! Like the idea of making individual ones, might have to try this!

Ok, we are HUGE Chicken Pot Pie fans. And I've even posted my simple recipe. However, these are TOO CUTE! How did they taste? Since you drain the soup, are they dry?
