  • 1 sprig of thyme (or a pinch if dried)
  • 6 sheets of phyllo, cut to size of each muffin mold
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
  1. Boil the chicken breasts for 30 minutes or until cooked.

  3. Melt butter in pan over medium heat, then add flour. Stir constantly until smooth.
  4. Add warmed chicken broth.
  5. Continue to cook until mixture begins to boil. Turn off heat and let cool.
  6. In separate pan, add olive oil, carrot, celery, onion, and peas. Cook for 5 min or until veggies are soft (or desired texture).
  7. In pan with flour and broth, add egg, salt, pepper, thyme, cinnamon, cheese, chicken, vegetables and mix together.
  8. Melt butter and grease each muffin mold.
  9. Add one piece of phyllo, to each muffin mold.
  10. Brush each phyllo piece with butter, and repeat. You should end up with each muffin mold containing 6 pieces of phyllo.
  11. Add a scoop of chicken mixture to each muffin mold. Repeat until each mold has equal amount of chicken filling.
  12. Fold phyllo tops over to enclose filling.
  13. Add a small piece of phyllo to top if needed to seal.
  14. Bake in the oven at 350F for about 30 mins or until golden brown.
  15. Remove from oven, let sit for about 10 minutes
  16. Serve!
Notes
*If filling gets too thick, you can add a little milk.
*For the serving, each pot pie counts as one. Our muffin tin had 6.
