Puppy Pot Pies...a fun version of Chicken Pot Pie for the Kids!

My boys have never been a fan of chicken pot pies and I try to find creative ways to make it fun for them to eat. It really works on my 5 year old. My 8 year old can not stand carrots and peas so is not thrilled with a pot pie no matter what it looks like! At least this works on one of my kids. My 5 year old LOVED it and woofed the whole thing up within minutes which is amazing for him.

Puppy Pot Pies Ingredients

  • Chicken – you will need frozen cubed chicken or you can make chicken breasts and cut into chunks.
  • Veggies – carrots, peas and celery.
  • Roux Mixture – butter, flour, onion, chicken broth and milk.
  • Seasoning – salt, pepper and celery seed.
  • Egg – you will use egg white to brush the top of the pie crust for a nice golden finish.
  • Pie Crust – you can use store-bought refrigerated pie crust or make our Easy Pie Crust Recipe.

How To Make Puppy Chicken Pot Pie

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)
  2. Chop up your celery and carrots. Put your chopped veggies, peas, and diced chicken in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Roll out your pie crust. We used 4 (6oz) souffle dishes. Place the souffle dish on the crust and cut a circle with a inch or so beyond the dish.
  4. In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat.
  5. Place the chicken mixture in bottom pie crusts and pour the flour/milk mixture over the top.
  6. Cover with the top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Press down on the sides a bit to prevent any of the mixture from coming out.
  7. Roll out the dough scraps and cut out 4 smaller circles for the nose. Cut out 1 ear and use that as a guide to cut out the rest. Place the saved carrots on for the nose and tongue. Put on the peas for the eyes and place the cheek cut out on the face. Press on the ears. Some will hang off the side.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly.

Puppy Chicken Pot Pie

These Puppy Chicken Pot Pies turned out SO cute! These are very easy to make and will only take about 5 to 10 minutes extra to make the puppy face.
Servings: 4
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Total: 45 minutes

Ingredients
  

  • 2 pie crust recipe or 9" unbaked pie crust
  • 1 lb chicken cubed (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup carrots chopped
  • 1/2 cup green peas frozen
  • 1/2 cup celery sliced
  • 1/3 cup onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 pie crust recipe or two 9" unbaked pie crust

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)
  • Chop up your celery and carrots. Put your chopped veggies, peas, and diced chicken in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Save about 8 carrot slices and 8 peas for the puppy face.
  • Roll out your pie crust. We used 4 (6oz) souffle dishes. Place the souffle dish on the crust and cut a circle with a inch or so beyond the dish.Place the bottom crust in the dish and press on the bottom and sides. There should be some of it sticking out around the top. Save the pie dough scraps to make the face and ears.
  • In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat.
  • Place the chicken mixture in bottom pie crusts and pour the flour/milk mixture over the top.
  • Cover with the top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Press down on the sides a bit to prevent any of the mixture from coming out. We pinched ours to make it look like puppy hair. We made 2 small holes in the top where the eyes would go and the nose to allow steam to escape.
  • Roll out the dough scraps and cut out 4 smaller circles for the nose. Cut out 1 ear and use that as a guide to cut out the rest. Poke a few holes on each side of the nose cut out and cut a slit down the middle. Place the saved carrots on for the nose and tongue. You could also cut a heart out of the carrot for the nose (I thought of that after we already made them). Put on the peas for the eyes and place the nose cut out on the face. Press on the ears. Some will hang off the side.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. We did cover ours with foil in the middle of baking to prevent over browning.

    So cute. My mom makes her pot pies with gravey and boiled eggs. No veggies, those go on the side. Your picky eater might like that.

    So cute!! Almost too cute to eat — almost. I would love it if you would come link up with Busy Monday (through Thursdays) at A Pinch of Joy, a linky party for ideas that make life better.

  3. Your Pot Pie's are just adorable and I want one! It looks so good, who wouldn't just love it. Hope you have a fabulous week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

    How cute are those! My 3 year old would love it! I'll be back on Friday for your link party!

  6. I think a muffin pan would be too small. You could just make a big one in a regular pie pan if you don't have the souffle dishes.

    That's an AMAZING creation – I will totally have to try it even though I tend to shy away from things that seem moderately complicated… might be too cute to pass up!
