Rustic Mini Cheesy Chicken Pot Pies Filling

Fold cheese through the hot mixture. Allow cooling while you make the dough.
Mini Cheesy Chicken Pot Pies Dough
Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F. Sift flour and salt. Rub the butter in with fingertips until the mix resembles breadcrumbs.
Add milk and mix to a soft dough. Then turn dough on to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
Roll the dough out to a 3ml thickness, and then cut into 5”/(13 cm) circles. Afterward, press dough into lightly greased muffin tin cups, allowing a 1/2”/2.5cm overhang.
Spoon cooled chicken mixture into pans, keeping it level with the tin.
Once all cups are filled, gently pinch dough and press toward the center of the cup, partially covering your mixture. Then brush edges with a little melted butter.
Place in the oven and bake 25-30 minutes until the dough is golden.
Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes before removing from the pan.
These will freeze and re-heat well.
NOTE: Before removing from the tray, just run a knife around the edge, this will allow them to pop out easily.
