Pies All Around

As everyday normally goes, I spend most of it wondering what I will make for dinner. I didn't really feel like cooking last night, so I made something a little bit on the easier side; chicken pot pies!

Basically just warm up a pan, throw in some cube chicken and brown it. Then throw in some mixed veggies, a can of cream of chicken soup (I used cream of broccoli since that's what we had), a little milk and some seasonings. Place it in an oven safe bowl (I used this foil bowls found at Walmart). Then I just cut the Pillsbury Grands Layer Biscuits in four pieces, laid some on top and popped it in the oven at 350 for 14-17 minutes (until they are golden brown). It was so easy and so good!

We had some left over so I decided to make a desert. I ended up making mini apple pies. All you need to do is follow and pie filling recipe, but I did this:

Preheat oven to 350

For the filling:
2 large baking apples sliced into small pieces
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 cup white all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Stir all those together. Then with a muffin tin, spray some pam or the like, use a grands layered biscuit for the outside. Grab one, cut it long ways (like a hamburger bun is sliced). Roll out it as big as you can (I got mine to the size of my palm), place it in the muffin tins. Next, fill the dough with a heaping pile of the mixture, place a small pad of butter on top and lay another piece of the other side of the biscuit on top.

Bake for 14-17 minutes, or until the top is golden brown (make sure it's completely golden or the bottoms of the 'lids' will be doughy).
