- For the crust:
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1 Tbs Baking Powder
- 1/2 stick butter
- 3/4 cup Skim Milk
- For the filling:
- 1 lb chicken breast cooked and cut into bite size pieces
- 1/2 tsp each salt pepper, parsley flakes and thyme
- 1/2 cup 98% fat free chicken broth
- 1 bag frozen peas and carrots mine was 12 oz
- 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese 4oz
- For the crust, in a food processor combine flour and baking powder, pulse a few times. then cut the half of butter stick into 4 pieces and process for a few seconds. When there are no large pieces, add the milk and process until smooth, paste like.
- Cook the chicken with the seasonings, when it is almost cooked through, add the chicken broth and peas, turn heat to low, cook for another few minutes.Preheat oven to 350.
- In a 6 deep muffin pan (or you could use a regular 12 muffin pan, they would just be smaller) spray with cooking spray, then add about 1 heaping spoon full of the dough mixture to the bottom of each cup and spread around the bottom, then on top of that divide the chicken/pea/carrot/broth mixture (I had a little broth left over at the bottom of the pan and spooned it evenly ontop of the chicken mixture. Then add shredded cheddar, and then top off each one with a remaining dough and spread around. Bake for 35 min, let cool for 5, and viola, you're done!
