Chicken Pot Pie Muffins – Pie De Pollo

I made individual pot pies with every intention to eat a single serving, however, after one taste of the delicious crumble topping, I couldn’t resist having seconds. You can make these using a muffin pan, like I did, or cupcake size pot pies for appetizers. Enjoy!
