My son and I feature a “kids teaching kids” approach to cooking that features easy to follow recipes for kids to try at home. Today, we are excited to share an easy to make muffin pan recipe: Mini Muffin Chicken Pot Pie.
Step 1: Roll out your crescent dough. Parents you can make it ahead of time with this crescent roll recipe. Use a 3-inch cookie cutter to make round shapes. Lay the round dough shapes in the muffin pan and press along the bottom & sides.
No cookie cutter? You can use the open part of a cup or empty can. We sprayed the bottom of the pan with olive oil because we weren’t using a non-stick pan.
Step 2: Mix cream of chicken soup with 1 cup of cubed chicken and 1 cup of mixed vegetables in a bowl. The great thing is that you can use whatever veggies you want. You can chop your own, or use frozen when you are in a pinch! Add salt and pepper to taste. To make your own cream of chicken soup, try this recipe.
Step 4: Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes then serve!
