These Chicken Pot Pie Crescent Roll Buns are a handheld twist on a classic! Full of your favorite pot pie ingredients, these are a fun dinner!
Chicken Pot Pie Buns
I love a good chicken pot pie, but these Chicken Pot Pie Crescent Roll Buns are an easy recipe that anyone can make at home! With all of the classic flavors of a regular pot pie, these handheld buns are a fun twist.
Individual chicken pot pies can be a bit of a headache if you don’t have the right dishes or oven space, so these chicken pot pie crescent roll buns allow you to have the same experience in an easier way. Once they’re cooked, everyone gets their own!
With seasoned chicken, onions, carrots, peas and mashed potatoes, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of these before. I know I have! These buns make for an excellent dinner and you can heat them up the next day as leftovers (if you have any!).
This recipe does have you making some homemade mashed potatoes, but if you find that you have some left over from the night before or you have a tub that you bought from the store, feel free to substitute those potatoes instead. These homemade mashed potatoes taste really good, but I am all about using leftovers to make your life easier throughout the week.
Pot Pie Buns Recipe
How To Make:
1 raw chicken breast, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 cup peas/carrot mix, frozen
1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 8 ct
2 potatoes, cut, skins on (or off, your choice)
2 Tbsp + 2 Tbsp butter, salted
1/8 cup cream
1/2 tsp thyme, dried (plus a few dashes)
1 clove garlic, crushed
Salt and pepper to taste
1 packet brown gravy mix
Take out a cutting board and chop your potato into even chunks. Fill a pot with salted water, add the potatoes, and then heat the water to boiling. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cook the pieces until they are soft. This should be about 10 minutes.
Take out a frying pan and add your diced raw chicken and diced onions. Begin to sauté these together and then add your 1/2 tsp thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. Sauté until the onions are soft and the chicken is cooked through.
Once cooked, taste the mixture to make sure it is seasoned to your liking. If you want to add more salt or pepper, do that at this point.
Add your frozen vegetables to the chicken mixture and and sauté until everything is warmed through.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Drain the water from your fork tender potatoes and add 2 tablespoons of butter and the cream. Mash the potatoes and combine the ingredients together. Season with a little salt, pepper and thyme.
Open your can of crescent rolls and separate the dough along the perforated edges.
One crescent roll at a time, take a spoonful of the chicken mixture (just under 1/4 cup) and place it on the wide end of the dough.
Cover the chicken mixture with a large dollop of mashed potatoes.
Roll the dough into a bun shape, working from the widest end to the smallest end. Pinch to seal any openings you might see. Place each one on your parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Melt the other 2 tablespoons of butter and give two shakes of thyme into it. Stir to combine. Brush the tops of each chicken pot pie bun with melted butter.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the buns are golden brown.
While you are baking your crescent roll buns, make the gravy in a small pot according to the instructions on the package.
Once ready, remove the chicken pot pie crescent roll buns from the oven, plate each bun and then top it with a spoonful of gravy. Enjoy!
Can You Substitute Pie Crust For Crescent Rolls?
Yes! The end texture will be a little bit different, but if you prefer a pot pie with pie crust (or only have that on hand), these Pot Pie Crescent Rolls will still turn out fantastically.
Can You Use Pre-Cooked Chicken For These Chicken Pot Pie Buns?
Yes! Your timing will look a little different, so keep a very close eye on your chicken and onions during the seasoning step. You may want to start cooking your onions for a few minutes before adding your already cooked chicken so that you don’t overcook the chicken.
