Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes

Perfect quick meal for the family!  My boys LOVE these Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes
Why oh why did I not think of these?    I love Chicken Pot Pie, but have never ever made it.  Weird, I know.  I don't know why I haven't really tried.  Just never have.  Well, until now.  I came across this post for Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes over at tablespoon which totally spoke to me...a great way to shake up chicken, and get the vegetables too - all in one neat little package.  Called cupcakes.  And this girl LOVES cupcakes!  Not to mention, also totally appealing to my boys too :-) 

Here is the recipe that I used:

1 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1 can Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup
2 cups of fresh, diced vegetables (I used carrots, broccoli, peas, onions)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 can Pillsbury Biscuits

Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes brought to you by Addicted to RecipesIngredients for Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes

Preheat oven to 400F.

Cook your chicken, cool and dice.

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, soup, fresh vegetables, cheese, basil, thyme, onion powder and garlic powder.

Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.  Roll out the Pillsbury biscuits and place one biscuit into each cup.  Press the biscuit into the bottom of the cup, and up the sides.

Evenly spoon the chicken mixture into each of the cups.  I filled mine very full (trying to cram in as many vegetables as I can LOL!), but you may have some leftover.

Bake the cupcakes for 12-15 minutes.  Once done, remove from oven and allow to rest for about 3 minutes before removing from pan and serving.

A fan favorite! Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes


VERDICT:
As I suspected, these were a huge hit with my boys.  Easy for me to prepare, expecially on a busy work night, and because it was something "different" and fun-looking (umm hello, cupcakes!) they were consumed rather quickly....and a few nights later when my hubby made dinner, he made them all over again!

  1. Hmmm... when your kids are chowing down something full of veggies and your hubby is making it for dinner just a few nights after you made it, you KNOW you've got a winner, right? What a great idea! One of the reasons that I rarely make chicken pot pie is because of the time it takes. Well, here you are with my solution! Thanks for sharing it! ~Mary

  27. I love this recipe! It looks so easy to make too! I have a Campbell's Soup recipe using Cream of Chicken Soup to make a chicken pot pie but the topping is made from bisquick.

  28. Great idea! I love chicken pot pie. I think the kids might eat it in a smaller format.

  29. These are very cool, but calling them cupcakes just seems wrong in my mind lol Its a great idea though and I think I'll be trying these for my grandkids!

  32. I have a feeling this recipe would be a huge hit on my new link party, Required Ingredient, which is featuring chicken today since I've never seen anything like it before... and I bet a lot of other people haven't either. I hope you'll pop over and link it up since I really want this link party to help people discover out of the ordinary recipes and new bloggers.

  37. These look very easy and tasty. Curious...do the fresh veggies really get tender enough without being pre-cooked?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Are the fresh veggies supposed to be sauteed or steamed before hand? I should have gone with my gut and done that because 15 minutes in the oven did not make them tender :( Otherwise though, they were tasty and I will do them again!

  39. This is a very interesting recipe. I`m sure my family will like it! Thanks for sharing it with us
