Individual Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pies

Christmas is a week away and that about wraps up the 2011 Holiday Recipe Exchange. I hope you all had as good of time as Jamie and I did! This week’s theme is pies: sweet or savory! Holiday Baking means pies, but don’t forget the savory pies – they are great this time of year, too.

We love these Individual Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pies on a cold, snowy day like today. They’re also great for using up leftover Holiday turkey.

Individual Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pies

The Breville Personal Pie Maker is so fun to use and made cooking up these pot pies a snap. I can’t wait to use the pie maker for more recipes because I think the kids are really going to love these individual sized portions.

Join Jamie and I this week in sharing your favorite Pie Recipes for a chance to win a Personal Pie Maker from Breville. Be sure to check out her recipe for Pear and Cranberry Individual Pies

I truly appreciate all of those who came out and participated in the 2011 Holiday Recipe Exchange. We enjoyed seeing your contributions browsing your delicious recipes. Happy Holidays!

  • 1 recipe All Butter Pie Crust: Perfect Pie Crust Recipe - prepare ahead of time

For the chicken

  • Half a recipe of All-Purpose Shredded Crock-Pot Chicken - prepare ahead of time

Vegetable Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, stemmed, caps sliced
  • 3 ounces carrots sliced into rounds
  • 3 ounces sliced celery
  • 1 1/2 red bell peppers, cut into strips
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 teaspoons concentrated chicken base, such as Better than Bouillon


For crust:

  1. Prepare according to recipe instructions. Find recipe here: All Butter Pie Crust: Perfect Pie Crust Recipe

For chicken:

  1. Prepare according to recipe instructions. Find recipe here: All-Purpose Shredded Crock-Pot Chicken. Prepare only half of what the original recipe indicates. Shred and set aside in a bowl.

For filling and assembly:

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until soft, about 6 minutes. Add mushrooms, carrots, peppers, and celery; sauté for about 4 minutes. Add to bowl with chicken; mix in green onion, sun-dried tomatoes, rosemary, and pepper.
  2. Add butter to a large saucepan and melt over medium hit. Whisk in flour for two minutes. Add flour; whisk 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and then milk. Stir in chicken base. Bring the mixture to a boil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir into chicken and vegetable mixture.
  3. If using the Breville Pie Maker, prepare the pot pies according the manufacturer's instructions. I added about 1/3 - 1/2 cup filling per pie.
  4. Alternatively, divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll out pieces to 7-inch circles on a floured surface. Divide the filling between 6 two cup ramekins. Cover each ramekin with 1 dough circle, pressing the overhang to the sides of the dish to adhere. Cover and chill. Pies may be assembled 1 day in advance.
  5. Heat the oven to 350°F. Brush the tops of each pie with egg glaze (beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon milk); poke 3 slits with a knife in the tops so steam can escape. Bake until the pies are golden and the filling is hot and bubbly. Approximately 45 minutes.
