Daily Candy Kids :: Mini Chicken Pot Pie

I made this really cute scrumptious meal for Daily Candy Kids, it was featured last week in the What’s For Dinner post. The traffic may have caused our site to slow down a bit (as a daily candy feature tends to do!) so sorry for that! Hopefully you have come back to visit this week.
These minis are so easy and delish. I added a few root veggies like parsnips and sweet potatoes, cremini mushrooms and white wine – making it a great (and nutritious) meal for both parents and kiddos. And with Sophia walking now, easy has definitely been on my mind!
Click below for the full recipe, and stay tuned for a few more great projects this week.

Mini Chicken and Root Vegetable Pot Pies
Serves four

Ingredients
1 sweet potato, diced
1 parsnip, diced
2 sage leaves
5-6 cremini mushrooms, diced
1 white onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
2 chicken breasts, diced
½ c. parsley, chopped
2½ tbsp. flour
1 c. chicken stock
½ c. white wine
Premade puff pastry dough
1 egg, plus 1 tbsp. water

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Saute potatoes, parsnip, sage, mushrooms, onion, and garlic in oil and butter over medium heat.

3. Season with salt and pepper to taste, allowing vegetables to sweat about 5 minutes.

4. Remove vegetables and saute chicken breast 5 minutes.

5. Add vegetables, parsley, flour, stock, and wine. Simmer 5 minutes and season again with salt and pepper if necessary.

6. Fill four ramekins or baking cups with mixture and top each with a circle of dough about ¼-inch larger than the vessel.

7. Brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Bake 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden.

    This is a great idea…I’m always making my pot pies a rustic fashion with huge chunks of chicken and potatoes, etc. , so the idea of delicate individual portions would be lovely for a change.

    Pot Pie is a favorite of mine, so warm and filling. Perfect for cool weather. We have a few more warm days in the Bay Area (though I just missed the the snow in DC) but I’ll be making it soon. Love the idea of these single portions and these bright ramekins!

    Yum…I made a shrimp pot pie last Thanksgiving as an appetizer and it was a huge success!
    Love the mini!

    Hugs~

    Hi Tammy – I love these cups I got them a few years ago, my friend aran at http://cannelle-vanille.blogspot.com/ posted about them. sadly they are discontinued and I can no longer find them. you may want to try these mud cups as another cute option? they are a little pricey but amazing – and oven safe http://shophorne.com/mud-vesselsmugs-mud-australia-p-578.html
    hope this helps!

    Gorgeous pics and I love the ramekins! I couldn’t find any cups as beautiful and small as the ones here but I did fill six 6-oz custard-cup-type ramekins…and the pot pies were delicious! Thank you!
