Gosh, this cold weather has got me wanting, and craving comfort food.  I don’t know what it is, but I am loving all the things that will warm up my cold soul.  

Ok, that is a bit dramatic, but I am loving cooking things that are easy to do, but also will warm me up on these cold nights.  Sometimes a husband, a blanket, and a fluffy cat just aren’t enough.

Mini Creamy Chicken Pot Pies

We were at a wedding this past weekend, so that threw off my whole weekend-meal-planning that I normally do.  The wedding was obviously worth it, but the weather here decided to be a pain on Monday.  

It was raining as I left work and I made it to the store unscathed.  As I’m driving home, the rain starts pounding a little bit harder.  I’m not thinking much of it; I just wanted to get home and start getting dinner started.

Well, I pop my trunk when I finally make it to our house, and a deluge occurs.  I get completely soaked as I hurry up the stairs with my arms full of groceries.  How those bags didn’t break, I will never know.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon light butter
  • 1 1/2 lbs precooked chicken breasts cubed
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 4 medium carrots chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 1/2 cups reduced fat chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 3 oz low fat or light cream cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 canister low fat crescent rolls

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Melt 1/2 T butter in a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add the chicken and cook until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Set the cooked chicken aside.  
  • Melt the remaining butter and add in the onion, celery and carrots and cook stirring occasionally until the veggies start to soften.
  • Reduce heat and add in the flour. Make sure to coat all the veggies with the flour. Stir in the broth and bring to a boil.  
  • Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add in peas, cream cheese, thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Stir until the mixture is thickened and the veggies are tender, about 8 minutes. Add the chicken back in and stir until heated through.
  • Divide the mixture into the 8 ramekins. Put one uncooked crescent roll on each of the ramekins.  Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool about 5 minutes.

  1. Oh my goodness, these little guys are amazing. Speaking of which, I might need to make them again. They are creamy, yet delicious, and low in points. I would love to know how you liked them, if you make them. And thank you so much. This blog has been a labor of love, but I am having so much fun and learning so much about myself and food photography. It’s been a great experience so far!
