Recipe Info

For Filling: 

  1. Prepare the Champagne Chicken Gravy according to package directions. Melt butter in saute pan; saute celery, carrots and onions until just tender. Add sautéed vegetables, red pepper, mushrooms, peas and cooked chicken to prepared gravy. Simmer on low 18-20 minutes; add half and half, stir well, remove from heat.

For Pot Pie Dough Bowls:
  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Spray each tortilla pan mold with pan release. Pour Baking and Biscuit Mix in a large bowl, cut cream cheese and butter into the mix to make a dough.

  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface. Gently knead 3-4 times; roll dough ⅛” thick. Using the tortilla pan mold as a guide, cut the dough into a circle to cover the tortilla pan mold. Place dough circle over tortilla pan mold, press into the sides, cut off excess dough from sides. 

  3. Place the dough bowls on a cookie sheet pan, place parchment paper in each bowl and fill with pie weights; pre-bake the dough in the tortilla pan molds with pie weights for 15 minutes.

  4. Remove from oven. Remove the pie weights and parchment paper, return to oven and bake for 8-10 minutes longer or until the dough is golden brown and center is thoroughly baked. Let bowls cool. To serve, ladle Chicken Pot Pie mixture into the bowl and garnish with minced parsley or paprika.

  5. Yield: 5-6 servings
