How to Make Healthy Mini Chicken Pot Pies – step by step
First, preheat your oven to 375F. Then prep your ingredients. There won’t be much to the preparation but cubing store bought rotisserie chicken breast and opening the can of cream of chicken! This is a great way to use up cooked chicken from the night before.
Then in a medium bowl, mix chicken, cream of chicken soup, mixed vegetables and sprinkle a little chicken seasoning or salt and pepper. I usually use a classic mixed vegetables package that includes green beans. Depending on your taste buds, you can also add some garlic powder and onions and celery. Below, you’ll find the most simplistic recipe for this. Set aside
Next, use a glass or cookie cutter and carve out circles of crescent rolls dough.
Then you’ll want to grease a muffin tin with cooking spray and carefully place dough in each circle muffin cups. Add chicken mixture into each circle.
Finally, using the leftover crescent dough, cut strips and place it on top, in a weaving pattern.
Bake for about 20 minutes in the muffin pan, check at 15 minutes for desired brownness. It should be golden brown.

Top tips for making 4 ingredient Mini Chicken Pot Pies
- Use rotisserie chicken that’s seasoned the taste you want the pot pie to taste. If you use a barbecue flavored rotisserie chicken, you’re going to have a bbq flavored pot pie!
- Use store-bought rotisserie chicken. It will save so much time and dishes.
- Use just corn or just carrots for those picky eaters who don’t like certain vegetables.
- I used frozen vegetables for ease, but if you have fresh you can use those!
- Can you freeze these?
- This recipe is best fresh. There are no preservatives in the recipe and the patty tends to break down over time if frozen.
- How long will it keep in the fridge?
- You can happily keep them in the fridge for 3 days. Either reheat it in pan for a crispy texture or microwave it for a few seconds
