Homemade Chicken Pie in a Mug- What? Don’t believe me that you can make a delicious Chicken Pie with a buttery Biscuit crus from scratch in the microwave? Click and find out how easy it is

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.

Use leftovers to make my Microwave Chicken Pie in a Mug in minutes featuring a creamy chicken filling and a warm, doughy biscuit topping.
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 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
  • teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon (1/4 oz/ 9g) butter, cubed
  • tablespoons milk (or buttermilk)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped herbs

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Pour in the stock and milk and stir well until everything is combined. Set aside.
  • For the biscuit topping: Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Using a fork rub in the cubed butter into the dry ingredients. When done it will resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the milk and herbs until your mix forms a batter. (I decided to leave out the cheese for the pie topping).
  • 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.
  • 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)
  • Enjoy warm!

Recipe 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.

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,
Thanks for all of your yummy recipes, I’ve throughly enjoyed them.

My family is wondering if I could triple your chicken pie recipe in a regular dish and cook in oven? Would it turn out the same?

Sincerely,
Tina

Can I make this and use keep it in fridge for 2 days before I microwave it or any of your mug meals prep them and cook them about 2 days later? X

OMG, this was absolutely amazing and made such a delicious chicken pie! My husband was joking that I am making all my meals in a mug now (which is kind of true)! I am currently pregnant, so mug meals are the perfect way to make just one portion of all of my pregnancy cravings!

Hi Gemma I recently found your videos and I’m amazed at all the recipes you have. There are so very many that I want to make. I also want to make homemade cream cheese, sour cream, yogurt & ricotta. This Mug Meal looks so delicious that I gave it 4 Stars even though I haven’t made it yet ….. I do not have a Microwave. I could not find the instructions for baking them in a regular oven, which you said were included in the recipes. Did I just overlooked them? Thank you for helping me because I’m anxious to… Read more »

Hi Gemma. In my family we don’t have butter as we always use margarine (not sticks, but tubs) . I know that if I make the biscuit with it I won’t get a breadcrumb but a soft dough mix. What can I do or substitute?

Thank you

Hello. That’s a great recipe there, but for some reason, my attempt was nothing short of a disaster. The chicken was rubbery and the crust was somewhere between undercooked bread and soup. Can someone please tell me where I went wrong? Thank you.

I tried the chicken pot pie in a mug and it taste so good. I used 2% reduced milk, a little bit of dried parsley and some other dried herbs. I love this recipe!
