  • Place the pastry circles into the bottom of each mini pie pan or muffin tin, forming the pie crust base.
  • Spoon the chicken and vegetable filling into each crust, leaving some space at the top for the top crust.
  • Cover each mini pie with another pastry circle, sealing the edges by pressing them together with a fork.
  1. Bake:
  • Place the mini chicken pot pies in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
