Whenever I shop at Sam’s Club or Costco, I always pick up a couple of rotisserie chickens. They’re such an amazing value and I can make a variety of recipes with them, like these mini chicken pot pies.

These Mini Chicken Pot Pies are really very easy and the kids are going to love them too!

The filling is really very easy to put together, so do not be intimidated. Plus, it’s so filling and hearty, the perfect winter meal.

I’ve tried making larger pot pies in a pie plate or even in a casserole dish, but they usually end up being really hard to serve without falling apart. This way everyone gets their own Mini Chicken Pot Pie that makes for a much better presentation.

While I am using rotisserie chicken, you could certainly use any leftover cooked chicken that you have. Often times, I like to cook up a whole chicken early in the week to enjoy in salads and meals all week long.

The filling will begin to thicken as the temperature rises, be sure to constantly stir to avoid burning.

Place 4-6 ramekins inside of a glass baking dish (to catch any spills)

Cook the filling 10-15 mins or until very thick and scoop the mixture into ramekins.

Use a fork to crimp the edges.

Brush melted butter over the top of the crust and bake your mini chicken pot pies for 25-30 mins or until golden brown.

The puff pastry lacks flavor so adding melted butter vs an egg wash helps give the dish a depth of flavor. To omit the butter, use an egg wash (1 egg + 1 tbsp water) to brush the top dough and lightly season with salt and pepper or dried herbs.

What to serve with my Mini Chicken Pot Pies?

You have everything you pretty much need here in terms of a protein, vegetable and carb. But, you could serve a nice side salad, a fruit salad or even a vegetable (cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus) that you don’t already have in your pot pie.

Can I freeze my chicken pot pies?

Yes, these freeze really nicely. Just cool them completely after cooking and then store in an airtight container or freezer safe bag. Or, you could freeze your pot pies prior to baking. Just do not add the melted butter to the tops before you freeze.
