Pinterest Review: Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes

When Anna was staying with us, I make these Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes, but without the chicken as she is vegetarian.

Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes


1 cup of diced chicken (cooked)
1  can (10 oz) Pillsbury biscuits
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
1/2 cup minced onions
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese ( I used mexican 4 cheese )


  • Preheat  oven to 400F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chicken, cream of chicken soup, frozen veggies, cheese, parsley, a pinch of salt and pepper (skip the salt if you’re not using a low-sodium cream of chicken).
  • Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin and place the biscuit dough into each cup, pressing into the bottom and up the sides.
  • Evenly spoon the pot pie mixture into each biscuit cup.
  • Slide into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Check at the 12 minute mark.
  • It might be tough to resist, but try to let them rest for about 3 minutes and bon appetit!

I really wanted this to be better than it was.  If I were to make it again, I would make sure that the veggies were more well cooked.  I did use fresh onion and celery, but those really should have been cooked until translucent.  Also, there wasn't really enough seasoning.  It really needed something because it was just so bland.  Looking back, rereading this recipe, I can tell that it would be bland.  There are no seasonings called for!  Hmm, I think this one may need to go on the Pinterest FAIL board...  Back to the recipes to find a better easy pot pie option...

  1. Try using a jazzed-up cream a fiesta cheese flavor or some other flavor more than just the usual cream of __ condensed soup! Or a stronger-flavored cheese. Add your own dry seasonings to the mix, including ranch flavored dressing packet (who cares if the recipe didn't call for them!?) and/or minced garlic.
    Consider using rotisserie chicken. those will have extra flavor...
    My bro introduced us to a chicken pot pie recipe that uses pie crusts (for bottom / top) and fillings in the middle. Bake for a good 45 mins, in order for everything to get good & warm. We have not been disappointed yet! If you want the recipe...let me know!
