Microwave Chicken Pie in a Mug (Microwave Mug Meals)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

When it comes to Mug Meals I have made everything from Microwave Mug Pizza to Mac & Cheese in a Mug  and overtime I say to myself, “What next?” Sometimes I am flat out of ideas. And then in the eleventh hour it hits me: Microwave Chicken Pie in a Mug! Did you know you can make a delicious Chicken Pie with a buttery Biscuit crust from scratch in the microwave? Keep reading….

Usually a Chicken Pie requires a lot of steps but this little gem is very straight forward and just needs a handful of ingredients. Rather than using leftover cooked chicken for cold sandwiches, use it to make this Chicken Pie. Mix it up with chicken stock, frozen vegetables and a little milk for a creamy sauce and you have yourself a base for a Chicken Pie.

So a pie is not a pie without a pastry or biscuit topping correct? Do you see that lovely soft topping on my pie? Well that is none other than my Cheese & Herb Biscuit in a Mug recipe. As it cooked in the microwave it rises up and you get a lovely soft biscuit as a crust.

Microwave Chicken Pie in a Mug
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 3-4 tablespoons cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons frozen vegetables (peas and carrots)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cornflour (cornstarch)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon full fat milk or cream
  • For the Biscuit topping
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon (1/4 oz/ 9g) butter, cubed
  • 3½ tablespoons milk (or buttermilk)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped herbs
Instructions
  1. In a large microwavable mug add in the cooked chicken, frozen vegetables, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Stir well together to mix in the cornstarch. The cornstarch is used to thicken the sauce.
  2. Pour in the stock and milk and stir well until everything is combined. Set aside.
  3. For the biscuit topping: Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Using a fork rub in the cubed butter into the dry ingredients. When done it will resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  5. Stir in the milk and herbs until your mix forms a batter. (I decided to leave out the cheese for the pie topping).
  6. Gently scoop the batter on top of the chicken pie mix. It might sink a little, don’t worry that is fine. During cooking it will rise up.
  7. Microwave for roughly 2 minutes- 2 minutes 15 seconds. It is ready when the biscuit batter is firm on top and you don’t see any wet batter. (This timing is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary)
  8. Enjoy warm!
Notes
You can mix this mug cake up the night before and cook it off in the microwave

The chicken stock will give your pie a lot of flavor. Use stock over broth as broth is weaker in flavor.

    This was SO good! This is definitely one I will repeat! I have uploaded a picture. 🙂
    I was afraid it would be too big for any of my mugs – so I used a small microwave bowl instead.
    I wonder if I could make this one in the oven? If I wanted a browned crust… would 180 C and 15 minutes work?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 12, 2017 at 2:20 am

      Good question Joseffa! I am happy that you liked this, and indeed you could use the oven for this. The broiler/grill is a great thing to use in combination with the microwave. When the food is already hot it will brown in no time at all under the grill/broiler. Yes 180C for about 15 mins should do it too. You will be an expert in no time at all!
      Gemma 🙂

      • Joseffa Niji on July 27, 2017 at 4:39 pm

        Hi Gemma,
        Sorry for the late reply. I have been camping. 🙂
        Thanks for the tips. I had completely forgotten that my Microwave actually has a grill function!
        I’ve never used it before. Now I have a great use for the grill function. 😀

        I love your mug meals. They have replaced fast food for me. I always feel bloated and uncomfortable after eating a frozen dinner. But after a mug meal I feel great and very satisfied.

        Thank you 🙂 <3

        • Gemma Stafford on July 28, 2017 at 12:36 am

          Hi Joseffa,
          Luck you, getting at one with nature, nothing like it!
          Glad you are using all of the functions of your microwave now, too handy to neglect!
          Thank you for being in touch,
          Gemma 🙂

  2. Daniela on May 23, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    LOVE this! I’ve made it several times and it always turns out great. Thanks for the recipe !!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 23, 2017 at 7:00 pm

      I’m delighted to hear that Daniela. Thanks so much for trying my recipes.

      Gemma.

  3. Boon on April 17, 2017 at 4:03 am

    I don’t have a microwave oven. Would the chicken pie work in a conventional oven?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 18, 2017 at 2:54 am

      Yes, any of these will Boon!
      Bake at 180C/350F for about 15 – 20 mins.
      Bake more than one at a time if you are going to turn on the big oven. Use a muffin pan too, make more than one, then you can share!
      Gemma 🙂

  4. Donna on March 31, 2017 at 10:39 am

    Hi Gemma,
    Can I use AP Flour in the chicken veggie mix instead of cornstarch?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 1, 2017 at 3:07 am

      Donna this will not cook in the time for you, it will taste floury! Cornstarch/cornflour or arrowroot will be good for this,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. alishasarah on January 6, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    This is AWESOMESAUCE. Thanks so much for the recipe! I make this almost everyday for dinner! My mom is getting jealous because she is starting to think that I’m a better and more efficient cook, even though I’m only 14!

    • Gemma Stafford on January 6, 2017 at 3:29 pm

      hi there,
      I am happy to hear that this is working for you, thank you for being in touch,

    Hi Gemma

    Wish I came across your website long time ago, if I want to put in 4 to 5 cups at a go,what will the microwave timing roughly be? We 4 in the household.

    I assume this was asked before but I cant go through all the comments
    Many Thanks
    Charlotte

    • Gemma Stafford on November 13, 2016 at 8:20 am

      Actually Charlotte, because of the way microwaves bake it is best to bake these one at a time. This is a great question. All the technologies are not the exact same, some cook in pulses, some are more constant like mine. So, you do need to get to know your own oven. The only way to do this is to try one recipe, watch it, check after 40 seconds or so, cook for another 10 secs and on like this until you are happy with the result. The energy will reduce if you put in a larger amount, so you will need to rotate the cups as you check up on them. it is not an exact science!
      Remember that the food will continue to cook for about one more minute when it is removed from the oven, as there will be residual heat in the food. I hope this helps. 🙂

  8. Buffy on November 11, 2016 at 8:45 am

    I really enjoyed going over many of your mug recipes, but I do not have a microwave. I have a pressure cooker, a small rice cooker and a slow cooker. Can I use one of these? I also do have a stove and an oven – what do you think?
    Thank you in advance for your reply …..HELP! Lol…. 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on November 12, 2016 at 2:40 am

      Hi Buffy, good question! the pressure cooker should be perfect for the cake type recipes. i would use a small pudding bowl, covered, and try these for about 5 mins at low pressure, it will be an experiment, I did not try this, but i do love the pressure cooker!
      Gemma 😉

  9. Bei on October 21, 2016 at 4:25 pm

    Omg! You’re a life saver! I’m not really into cooking and came across your site on fb!!! Just tried your chick pot pie and my boy has yummied it down!
    I’ve only ever made a mwave choc cake before which is when I discovered mwave mug cooking! I thought it only worked for desserts! Yay! Thank you! Keep sending more more recipes, I’m hooked!!

    • Gemma Stafford on October 22, 2016 at 1:11 am

      Thank you for being with us, I am happy that you are enjoying the mug recipes, there will be lots more! 🙂

  10. Nason St. Clair on October 19, 2016 at 4:43 pm

    Gemma, I made this recipe twice already and both times it tasted absolutely delicious. Not only that but the biscuit batter was like an actual biscuit. It was light, buttery, chock-full of herbs. But the first time I made this recipe, I actually baked it off in my toaster oven because I wanted a crisper crust. The second time I made it I was starving so I just decided to microwave it because I just did not have the time to wait like fifteen minutes for a meal when I know that I can simply have it in 2 minutes. But you know what you say; i’ts not fast food, but real food fast. ?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 20, 2016 at 2:00 am

      Ah! that is so good to hear Nason, that is the idea, real food fast, and hopefully things that you can have in your store cupboard. Fast food is so expensive too! good job you!
      Gemma 🙂

  11. Kim Andrew on October 14, 2016 at 9:14 pm

    Made this for supper this evening and it’s delicious. I added a salad and it was perfect for me. I was going to take a picture, but I got carried away and dug in and ate, and then it was all gone. HA!

    I really need to look for some smaller mugs, shaped more like the ones you have. Mine are all regular mugs, and they are 12-16 oz, so I find I have to adjust the cooking time on all the recipes—but that’s a minor challenge for such a good meal.

    I’ll definitely be making this again.

    • Gemma Stafford on October 15, 2016 at 2:30 am

      Hi Kim, that is great, well done you! My mugs/cups are more like 6 – 8oz, so a big cup really, with a wide mouth. i gather them up as I move around, in charity stores (a great source) markets and department stores at sale time. my family also donate/gift them, and one of my favorite came from a great friend in Australia. So. get gathering, it is fun too! 🙂

  12. Annie Li on August 25, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    I made it, but I used Alfredo sauce instead of milk and it tasted so good! Thanks Gemma!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 26, 2016 at 2:41 am

      Hi Annie, that does sound good! well done you 🙂

  13. Margaret on August 24, 2016 at 5:45 pm

    I am 81 years old and live by myself. I am so happy to have found these wonderful meals in a mug. It means I can throw together a complete meal in minutes. Thank you!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 25, 2016 at 1:09 am

      Hi Margaret,
      I am really happy to have you with us, and delighted that these recipes are suiting you. lots more to come!

  14. thinuroxz999 on July 21, 2016 at 10:37 pm

    Hi Gemma, I was wondering if I could use vegetables other than using the frozen ones maybe??

    • Gemma Stafford on July 22, 2016 at 7:56 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, but you will need to blanch them. That is how frozen veg are prepared, giving you a slightly cooked result.
      Blanching: Bring a pot of water to the boil. shoot in the veg, bring back to the boil for one minute. Drain and cool under cold water then they are ready to be frozen, or used.
      Gemma 🙂

  15. Lori on July 7, 2016 at 1:29 pm

    These meals are perfect for me. I rent a room and all I have is a microwave and dorm fridge. Love this idea. Will be trying some of these mug meals.

    • Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2016 at 1:43 pm

      That’s great to hear, Lori. I’m glad you liked these 🙂

  19. Sharon Nanny on June 10, 2016 at 9:55 am

    I made it, but instead of regular milk I used coconut milk and instead of herbs I used Parsley, Thyme and Majoram as spices. The mug meal came out pretty good. I love the mug desserts as well. Please add more mug meals than desserts. Hugs from Wisconsin!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 11, 2016 at 2:08 am

      Hi Sharon,
      I will be adding to these recipes. Thank you for letting me know that you are getting on well with them,
      Gemma 🙂

  20. Nazima Yezdani on June 1, 2016 at 6:13 am

    This is amazing!!! Can I just leave out the biscuit topping? I know it won’t be a pie but will it taste good?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 2, 2016 at 3:06 pm

      Sure, you can leave that out 🙂

  21. Susin on May 22, 2016 at 4:17 am

    This is awesome! How many ounces are your mugs? Mine seam to be way to large. Are yours 6oz? And where do you find your large mouth mugs? They are so cute! Thank you.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 22, 2016 at 11:57 am

      Hi Susin,
      My mugs are around 6 oz, and really are more like large cups, this is where the wide mouth comes from. I find mine in all sorts of places, charity/goodwill stores are a great source for single cups, and they are really cheap too!
      Gemma 🙂

  22. Jasmine Warren on May 6, 2016 at 7:12 pm

    Can you use buttermilk instead of regular milk? I would like to make buttermilk biscuit in a mug for breakfast. Yum!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 8, 2016 at 3:06 pm

      you absolutely can. I have tried it with buttermilk and it’s perfection 🙂

  23. Kiwiyumyum on April 23, 2016 at 6:30 pm

    This sounds easy and tasty. I am both gluten and dairy free so I will be using GF flour and either soy milk or coconut cream as replacements. Would you be able to advise me on whether or not I need to make any other alterations to the recipe?

    Thanks
    [from New Zealand]

    • Gemma Stafford on April 24, 2016 at 11:05 am

      Hi there,
      I am not an expert in gluten free recipes, but lots of my followers make these adjustments with good results, so go for it, it is worth experimenting with these recipes, the results should at the very least be edible!
      I do not think you will need to make any other adjustments to this recipe, enjoy!
      Gemma 🙂

  24. Fiona on April 21, 2016 at 1:40 pm

    OMG! What a great idea! i am going t try this with my vegan Quorn pieces. Should be amazing. I have tried so many of your microwave meals and they are all fantastic. Thank-you!!!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on April 21, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      I’m delighted you like them Fiona. Good luck with your mugs 🙂
