    Ambervim's Note:

    Think of chicken pot pie meets cupcakes. This make a great meal on the go or lunchbox surprise. They freeze well. Serve with a leafy salad and that's dinner!

      I cut corners with this by using the pre-cooked chicken strips from Costco, and then the giant refrigerated biscuits. This was a good, quick meal, and the only note to myself I would make is to double the amount of biscuits because there just weren't enough.
