Back to School Dinner Idea – Pillsbury Grands!® Mini Chicken Pot Pies Puffs

How does your routine change when the kids go back to school?  In Arizona our schedule gets a lot more busy in the fall because the weather starts to move away from 100+ degrees. We get to enjoy more time outdoors and with that comes the addition of scheduled activities.  Our family has recently added a few different activities to our normally full schedule.  Combine that with my daughter getting comfortable in her new preschool classroom and my busy days working as a pre-k teacher, cooking dinner is not where I want to spend extra hours each evening.  With Pillsbury Grands® biscuits you are able to prepare dinner in less time than you would normally spend in the kitchen. We have had a few different dishes prepared using Pillsbury Grands and have been happy getting to spend our extra time on fun family activities like nightly walks to the park.

This week our family made a new dinnertime favorite.  The Pillsbury Grands Mini Chicken Pot Pie Puffs recipe was easy to follow and only uses four ingredients.  In less than 20 minutes I had dinner in the oven!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can PIllsbury Grands biscuits (PIllsbury recipe suggests Flaky Layers but I used Homestyle)
