Chicken Pot Pie is such an amazing winter dish! It’s warm, rich and so inviting! I make it several times a month and just can’t get enough of it! These tiny servings are so cute and convenient! Be sure that your mugs are oven safe beforehand.

1. Add bacon grease to Dutch Oven heated over medium heat. Add in vegetables and cook until onions are tender.
2. Add chicken and cook through. Slice open the largest piece and make sure it’s no longer pink in the center. You can also use a meat thermometer to ensure it’s reached 165°F.
3. Preheat oven to 400°F.
3. Add flour to filling mixture and cook 3-5 minutes. Add in the milk and broth, whisking constantly until thickened. Remove from heat.
