These Mini Chicken Broccoli Pot Pies had a clever name – Chick-n-Broccoli Pot Pies – and won the 28th Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1978 (one of 2 winners). Recipe on Pillsbury.com by Linda Mowery. The Pillsbury site has this recipe listed as Chick and Broccoli Pot Pies but there’s no mention that this was a bake-off winner. I found the information on Wikipedia. Either way, it’s a quick and easy recipe you can serve for dinner.
Start with the Jr. Grands Biscuits. Place each biscuit into an ungreased muffin cup. Press it down and up the sides of the cup.
Place grated cheese and rice cereal in the bottom of each biscuit cup
Combine the chicken, broccoli and cream of chicken soup in a bowl, then scoop into the biscuit cups.
Sprinkle with almonds and bake at 375°F. for 20 to 25 minutes. Easy peazy! Serve Mini Chicken Broccoli Pot Pies with a salad and your favorite side dish. Dinner is served!

Did you know that I made ALL of the winning recipes from the Pillsbury Bake-Off? It was my baking project back in 2014. I challenged myself to see if I could make all 53 winning recipes in one year and blog about each one. It was a fun project and I’m happy to say that I completed them all. Go here to see all of the recipes and tell me which one is your favorite. Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
I’ll go first. My favorite out of ALL of the winning Pillsbury Bake-Off recipes was this: Chocolate Cherry Bars. These “bars” are more like a Texas Sheet Cake with cherries. Just a few ingredients and so easy to make. They are moist and delicious!
