Chicken-Vegetable Pot Pie / Pies

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Dorel

This is one of my adopted recipes and I have made it. I have changed the recipe to boneless skinless breasts. I used fresh mushrooms. Yukon gold potatoes are my choice but any firm potato will do. Next time I will double the topping as it so good. I used all the topping on 1/2 the recipe.

4 stars for filling (see explanation below) I originally made this filling but used a different biscuit recipe which I rolled out into crusts.I made small pies with the mini tins and I think it made 8 pies so it was a very generous amount. I wrapped them in foil and froze them then took off the foil and put them in a micro-safe dish and sent to work with hubby. He raved about them every time he ate them!
Today I made these again (well, started making anyways) I made a double-batch which I again plan on making into individual pies. Needed something for dinner though so put some into an 8x8 dish and made your biscuit topping. I used milk instead of buttermilk so maybe that was my problem but I wasn't too impressed. I dropped the sticky dough onto the dish and it seemed more like dumplings. They didn't puff up and were rather dense. From now on I will stick with making my pies!
