Skinny Mini Chicken Pot Pies

     Mike and I have been eating healthy for about 2 weeks now. There isn't much variety in our meals. Salad, cheeseburger wraps, chicken and rice, salad with chicken, salad with tuna, etc. Boring...so I made it a point today to find something that would be completely different yet still healthy.

     I have been keeping a board on my Pinterest page for healthy ideas. It's just any exercises, food, inspiration, etc that I come across to keep this healthy living up. A few days ago I came across this recipe for these mini chicken pot pies. They seemed pretty east and looked delicious so...I went for it!!

These were AWESOME!! You would never even guess they are skinny!! Supposedly only 185 calories!!!

Skinny Mini Chicken Pot Pies
     1 can Pillsbury Grands Jr. (10 count)
     1lb chicken, cooked and diced
     1 10.75 oz can reduced fat cream of chicken soup
     1 cup frozen mixed veggies, thawed
     3/4 cup shredded cheese
     1 tsp dried italian seasoning
     1 tsp onion powder
     1/4 tsp black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using a 12 cup muffin pan, spray 10 of the cups with cooking oil. Pour a little water in the other two when baking.

2. Separate the biscuits and flatten out each so when they are placed in the muffin tins they create a cup.  The dough should come up the sides of the muffin cups.

3. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the chicken, soup, mixed vegetables, cheese, and seasonings. Spoon the mixture into the "biscuit cups" evenly.

4. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and let stand for 2-3 minutes. Serve right away. Use a knife to help you pull each "pie" from the tin.
