Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Cups

It's been way too long since I cooked for a toddler.  I can't remember what I made for dinner when my now almost 35 year old son Justin was small.  Tim's grandson, Paxton,  stays with us at least one night a week.  He loves all things noodles and chicken.  Determined to find some new toddler friendly main dishes, I turned to what else? Pinterest and created a board,  Foods for Paxton. 

Paxon, like all kids, loves cupcakes. These Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Cups is a fun main dish that looks like a cupcake, yet contains the veggies kids need.  Tim and I like them, too and they made great leftovers for our lunches!



Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Cups
Recipe courtesy of Call Me Mrs. Rapp

Yields 8-16 pot pie cups (depending on if you split the biscuits in half)


Ingredients:
*8-count biscuits (I used Homestyle)
*1 cup cooked chicken breast, diced
*1 (10 1/2 ounce) can  cream of chicken soup
*2/3 cup shredded  cheddar cheese
*1 1/2 c. frozen veggies, thawed (I used mixed vegetables)
*1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
*1 teaspoon of minced onion
*1/4 teaspoon black pepper
*1/2 teaspoon salt

Preparation:
*Preheat oven to 400 degrees.   

*Separate biscuits and place each biscuit in a cup of a lightly greased 12-hole muffin pan, pressing dough up sides to edge of cup.

*In a medium bowl, combine chicken, chicken soup, veggies, cheddar cheese, parsley flakes, and black pepper. Mix well to combine.

*Evenly spoon chicken mixture into prepared biscuit cups.

*Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

*Remove from oven. Place muffin pan on a wire rack and let set for 2-3 minutes. Serve at once.

  1. What an adorable recipe! It's been a while since I cooked for toddlers too, but this recipe would have been a winner with my kids when they were small.

  3. Great recipe, I can see this as being very appealing to a toddler or anyone actually, my grandson's are 4 and 8 and I am sure this would be a great hit. Happy week-end!
