I'm always trying to find ways to sneak in vegetables to my toddler's diet. About a year ago I made a more complex version with bisquik (check out that recipe here), but all I had today on hand was Pillsbury biscuits. So I improvised!
Anna is starting to become momma's lil helper. She loves when I get the little stool out so she can help me make dinner.
This recipe is pretty easy for a toddler to help with. Just make sure you have everything out and ready beforehand. And don't get upset if some spills on the floor. Find joy in the mess that's my new motto!
Pot Pie Biscuit
2 cans of refrigerated biscuits
2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup diced cooked chicken (or leftover thanksgiving turkey!) - I used tuna
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
Add two generous handfuls of shredded cheese if desired.
Mix in the tuna, veggies, and soup. Anna enjoyed eating the frozen veggies (my kid is crazy I know...frozen vegetables?)
Heat the oven to 375 deg. F. Press each biscuit into muffin tins. Make a small rim of "crust" around the sides. I also made mini biscuits in my mini muffin tin. Just cut the biscuit dough in half if you want to make minis.
Spoon in the vegetable mixture to each muffin cup. Don't overflow them. You might need to reshape your crust rim a little to make sure they don't seep. They should look something like this.
Now place them in your preheated oven for 18-22 minutes. You just want to brown the biscuit. Let them cool and pop them out of the tin. TO FREEZE: After cooled to room temperature, place in freezer bag. Pop them out and microwave for a quick meal.
