Mini Chicken Pot Pies

I use Stumble Upon on my free time… a lot. For those of you that don’t know what Stumble is, it’s a program that brings up websites it thinks you’ll like. I stumbled across a mini chicken pot pie recipe, it was just the size of a cupcake. Last year I made pot pie and I didn’t like how it oozed everywhere after I cut it. I also don’t own ramekins, so this recipe seemed perfect for me.

I got the recipe here, http://simplybeingmommy.com/2011/08/22/chicken-pot-muffins/. It took me a while but I shredded the chicken and mixed the ingredients. Overall it wasn’t too difficult. I pulled my muffin tray out of the oven and it smelled great; seasoned, warm, sweet. It’s not as flaky as I like my pot pies, but it’s convenient and yummy. They turned out a little drier than I would have liked them, but that may also be because it took me a day to actually get around to eating one of them. But anyway, when I make this again, and it is a question of when not if. I’d add a couple tablespoons of milk, maybe 2 or 3, to give it some moisture. I’m sure if eaten on the spot it won’t get absorbed by the bun. And do the topping with the Italian seasoning, I thought I wouldn’t need it so I didn’t include it but it was much better with it on top.
