These Chicken Pot Pies are easy to make and are oh so tasty when you want something warm and filling. You can make a larger pot pies, but honestly, I like making individual pot pies because they are much easier to serve, eat and store leftovers.
These take a little time to prepare, but are deliciously hearty and flavorful. I like to make mine in these cute little crock-bowls (onion soup bowls) I got a few years ago and love, but you can also use ramekins to bake the pies. These are perfect for a cold and rainy day like it is here today.
Individual Chicken Pot Pies
I never get tired of these lovely little pies made with potatoes,
fresh vegetables and a creamy filling.
These mini chicken pot pies are perfect to make ahead and can be warmed up when ready to eat.
You fill your crock-bowls with the mixture,
and then bake with a crust topping.
