These Mini Chicken Pot Pies are the perfect portion of your favorite comfort food! With just 5 ingredients and less than 30 minutes, you will have a budget friendly easy dinner the whole family will love.
Mini Chicken Pot Pies
An easy and delicious way to use up leftover chicken and vegetables, Mini Pot Pies are super fun for the whole family. Not only are the budget friendly, they use pantry staple ingredients and can be customized for even the pickiest eaters in the family.
Traditionally I would use a pie crust to make pot pie but when looking for an easy shortcut, I like crescent rolls. Crescent rolls are better than biscuits as the crust is flakier and has an extra buttery flavor to it.
Plus you can find it in dough sheets now which makes it even easier!
Why your family will love these!
- Using the crescent rolls and precooked chicken means you can get this meal on the table in less than 30 minutes.
- Condensed soup means you don’t have to bother making a roux.
- Customizable to make everyone in the family happy.
Chicken – Feel free to use rotisserie chicken, shredded cooked chicken you have stored in the freezer, or canned chicken in a pinch.
Condensed Soup – Cream of chicken works best but you can switch things up and use a broccoli cheese or cream of celery or onion.
Mixed Vegetables – Frozen mixed veggies are best but you can use canned Veg All. Just be sure to drain them vegetables well.
Cheese – I like cheddar for the flavor but use mozzarella or even Monterey Jack.
Crescent Dough – If you can’t find the crescent roll dough sheets you can use the individual rolls. Just pinch the seams together and then cut into squares. You can use pie crust in a pinch.

How to make Mini Chicken Pot Pies
First: Preheat the oven to 375° and spray a muffin pan with cooking spray.
Second: In a large bowl, combine the chicken, soup and vegetables and set aside.
Third: Unroll the crescent dough and press the seams together if using the rolls. Cut in half lengthwise, then cut each side into three equal pieces. If you want smaller pies, you can cut it into 4 pieces each.
Fourth: Press each piece of dough into each well in the muffin cups, making sure to press the dough over the top edge. Fill each dough cup with the filling, then sprinkle with cheese.
Fifth: Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the mixture is bubbly. Remove and serve warm.

How to store leftovers
Keep the mini pot pies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven at 350 or air fryer for 10 minutes to help crisp the crust up again.
Can I make these ahead of time?
I would make the filling mixture and keep in the refrigerator until ready to bake. You can do this up to 3 days in advance.
You can also complete the recipe and store them in the refrigerator (fully baked) for up to 3 days. Then reheat them covered in the oven at 350F. for 10-15 minutes or until the center reaches 165F internal temperature.
Can I make a whole pot pie with this?
Don’t want to make individual muffin tin cups? Place half the dough in an 8×8 pan. Add chicken mixture and then top with the other half the dough.
Bake as usual. The cooking time will be longer.
Tips for No Leftovers
- You can use pie crust dough instead of crescent dough. The cooking time may be longer.
- A sprinkle of poultry seasoning in the mix can ramp up the flavor even more.
- Use leftover turkey instead of chicken.
- No need for an egg wash, the mini chicken pot pie with crescent rolls have enough butter in the pastry that they will be flaky and golden brown.
- Warm up the frozen vegetables before adding to the mixture for more even cooking.
- I like to add small diced potatoes or frozen peas to my mixture.
